booking Lake O’Hara in the Canadian Rockies

Our favourite hiking destination in the Canadian Rockies is Lake O’Hara, Yoho National Park, B.C.

For decades we’ve had hikers hitting redial on the phone trying to get one of the precious reservations:

  • 32 day-use visitors
  • 90 campers / day

Some good news:

Overnight camping spots will now be offered through the Parks Canada reservation system on a first-come, first-served basis starting Jan. 24, 2020.

“Historically you phoned in,” …. “That creates some frustration for visitors because they get a busy signal. There was no way to see if sites were reserved.

This means we need be online at midnight on Jan 23rd.

Much easier.

  1. It is more convenient, but will it become like the West Coast Trail? Last summer, July and August booked full within three minutes of opening.
