BC is making it very clear that it is BC residents only in the provincial campgrounds. If a camper were to have non-BC plates, they could/will be refused.

Funny... I can’t find nothing on first come first serve sites, BC Parks only talk about reservations.

I hope BC residents remember that when the forest fires start, and they need out of province help.

Two totally different unrelated subjects. Firefighters normally stay in their own camps near the fires. See it when driving....a bunch of tents in a field with porta potties and mess tents.

the only thing that was done is reservations are closed for no BC residents, if you previously had a reservation and you are from out of BC it will still be valid and you can come to FCFS sites. I think you'll see a lot of provinces going this way for the summer to try encourage "stay vacations" to help with COVID

I've been wondering about this very topic myself, and how things will play out. I have read some conflicting information, depending on the source.

A group of us are planning a fishing trip to a lake near Merritt the first weekend in June.
Several of us are attending. 2 from Penticton, 1 from OK Falls, 1 from Kelowna, and myself from Alberta....

I'm wondering if I will run into any kind of challenges since i am no longer a BC resident. I used to live in Penticton years ago.

Location is a rough, totally unserviced area by a lake, FCFS. Park ranger wanders through and collects a nominal fee based on nights spent.

Hope I don't drive all the way from Calgary, only to be turned away....

Could leave the TT home, come out in my car and occupy a spot in a buddy's MH. I prefer my own space though.

It's a tough call, if basing it on available info. There is a lot of real estate that is NOT part of the BC Parks system. I am thinking that if your lake is not a reservation type location, that you will be ok. Emotions are running high, right now and you will need to judge the situation accordingly.
