Considering Canada was voted the number one country to visit this year, this might not be a bad idea.
The city is expecting a high surge of visitors to the Capital, especially around Canada Day when our beautiful country officially turns 150, so they have pitched an idea to help with accommodating all those guests – urban campsites.
The city wants to open up 10 various locations to campers:
- Cumberland Village Heritage Museum
- Bob MacQuarrie Recreation Complex
- Ray Friel Recreation Complex
- Richelieu-Vanier Community Centre
- St-Laurent Recreation Complex
- Nepean Sportsplex
- Earl Armstrong Arena & Trillium Park
- Kanata Leisure Centre
- Jim Durrell Recreation Centre
- Tom Brown Arena
If approved, these campsites will be open from June 29th to July 4th, 2017 and will cost campers $100/night with a max of 5 nights (maximum of 6 people) for a tent, RV’s will pay anywhere from $160 to $210 per night.
A premium electrical site in an Ontario Provincial Park costs $51/night plus taxes.
Considering the price is almost double compared to what Ontario Provincial Parks charges, is this a good idea or simply a money grab? Let us know what you think in the comments below campers!!!
