THOMPSON-OKANAGAN - If you decide to sleep in this Sunday you might miss out on the summer you’ve been dreaming of.

The online and call centre reservation system for provincial campgrounds officially opens Sunday, March 15 at 9 a.m. Reservable sites tend to book up quickly, especially at the more popular campgrounds and for long weekends. The system allows you to book up to three months in advance, which means the May long weekend is up for grabs on Sunday.

In total, 99 provincial parks offer 115 front country campgrounds, with a mix of reservable and first-come, first-served sites.

There are also a few new camping options for the 2015 season. Juniper Lake, Whiskers Point, Kootenay Lake and Summit Lake provincial parks each have spaces available while Mount Robson and Kentucky Alleyne provincial parks are offering more sites this year.

Parking remains free at provincial parks however camping fees will have jumped as much as $5 per night.
