Plan Your 2020 Vacation in BC

With snow blanketing the ground and dusting the mountaintops, and a chill in the frosty air, it can be hard to think about summer vacation. However, when you plan your 2020 vacation in BC early, you have the advantage of planning your trip when you’re relaxed and able to make leisurely decisions.

We book up quickly every year, and our summer bookings often begin in January. Many of our guests visit us annually, and grab up long weekends and prime summer dates early. If you’re thinking of visiting Clearwater this year, we have some tips for booking your 2020 vacation in BC.

Wells Gray Provincial Park

The Park is open year round, but some campgrounds close in the winter. Check the Wells Gray Provincial Park site for history and tourism information, and visit the BC Parks page for maps and dates of operation.


Fishing licenses can be purchased online at the Government of BC site. For sports fishers age 16 or older, a fishing license is required. Options range from a one-day license to a one-year license, so you can pay only for the amount of time you need.

A Pleasure Craft Operator Card is necessary for operating a motorized boat. However, several areas in Wells Gray Park are designated for kayaks and canoes only, which don’t require a license. Alpine Meadows provides complimentary canoes, kayaks, and rowboats to guests. If you plan to bring your own motorized boat, ensure your operator’s card and Pleasure Craft License are up-to-date.

Obtaining your licenses ahead of time makes for a more relaxed vacation, without any last-minute scrambling to obtain the proper paperwork!
