Unhappy B.C. Campers Continue Reservation Fight (2/8/2019)
Story by Woodall's Campground Management
Michael Babor (left) and Angela and Randy Massey protested the B.C. Parks decision to eliminate first come first serve camping in Golden Ears Provincial Park during peak season, from mid-May to Labor Day.
The group fighting for more drive-up camping spots in Golden Ears Provincial Park, armed with an 8,000-name petition, got a meeting with senior British Columbia (B.C.) Parks officials on Thursday (Feb. 7), according to the Maple Ridge-Pitts Meadows News.
Angela Massey said her Maple Ridge-based group will continue to push for half the campsites to be drive-up. B.C. Parks had announced Golden Ears would be reservation-only as early as this summer.
They reversed that decision after the local group of “unhappy campers,” led by Massey, her husband Randy and friend Michael Babor started their public campaign.
Now, Massey said they have also secured a commitment from B.C. Parks to public consultation, and meet with her group, again.
She is encouraged by the involvement of senior government officials.
“I think we have a chance to change the policy for all of B.C., to make it more equitable,” she said.
The alternative, she added, will be for people to plan their holidays four months in advance. Then they will have to book campsites using an online system, where desirable camping days are booked up within minutes of becoming available.
