ok so 29 years of living in BC all i have seen is Kamloops south and the island, so I am looking for ideas north of Kamloops that will take a 38 foot fifth wheel.

this summer is starting out at fairmont hotsprings for a few days then to alberta (east of reddear for a week) then I want to come back into BC for a week before I have to be down in langly.

I have solar so power is nice but not necessary.

thanks
Steve

Head up BC Hwy 37 fromthe Jct with Hwy 16 and Kitwanga to the Yukon Boarder, and don’t forget the side trip into Stewart Hyder Alaska.
Our two favourite B.C. Parks campgrounds are Meziadin Provincial Park and Boya Lake Provincal Park. They are both quite close to the lakes in some cases if you lucky you can camp,on the lakes edge. Yup there are bugs... but what they heck, just plan for them. We are headed back to Stewart this summer ( wife was raised there) and she wants to stay at Meziadin Lake for a week or so, but not sure we will get as far north as Boya Lake.

Don't think I'll be hitting Alaska as we haven't renewed our passports yet, but my original plan was to go up 97 to Nass then keep going up on 37 top Watson lake then down the east side of BC but I wont have time for that run this year. will both those places take a large 5th wheel no problem?

thanks

Don’t need a passport to get into Alaska at Stewart ... there isn’t a US customs building or boarder people even in Hyder Alaska.
And as a Canadian you don’t need a passport to re- enter Canada by road, it will go faster, but a Canuck doesn’t need a passport to enter his own country by road. There is a Canadian Customs office when you come back in to Canada ( Stewart BC ) from Hyder Alaska....
yup, we did it in our 23 ft and our 35 ft 5th Wheel, no issues. Some of the older campgrounds have tight sites, but they are always upgradeing everywhere in BC.
