The RDEK has been exploring the development of 20 non-serviced seasonal campsites at Wycliffe Regional Park as part of an effort to continue to offer an exceptional recreational experience to the public, provide more local camping options, and enhance local amenities.

While the development of a seasonal campground has been almost four years in the making, it was dependent on receiving grant funding. On April 20, 2024, the Province of BC announced $518,223 has been approved for the campground development through the Rural Economic Diversification and Infrastructure Program's Economic Development funding stream.

The sites will be non-serviced and there will be no impact to the current amenities at the park. Our goal is to create more opportunities for people to enjoy and explore the park, and take advantage of the walking and biking trails, picnic areas, horseshoe pits, ball fields and disc golf.

Once developed, there will be 10 tenting or smaller trailer sites in a treed area on the east side of the park and 10 pull-through sites along an existing hay field that will be open May-September annually.

Wycliffe Regional Park is 164 hectares in size and is one of the RDEK's largest regional amenities. The park is now open year-round and in addition to the summer recreational offerings, this past winter, the RDEK introduced a groomed winter trail bike network.

A Request for Proposal has been issued for a contractor to oversee the development of the campground sites, which closed May 8, 2024. Once the contract has been awarded, a more detailed design and project timeline will be completed and shared via this project page.

This project would not have been possible without the funding support from the Province of BC.
