oTENTiks will not be opening in 2021 camping season due to limited resource capacity.

Whistler’s Campground now offers oTENTiks, canvas-walled tents, where you can ‘rough it’ without getting your clothes ruffled. Each oTENTik has all the basic comforts of home-wooden floors, bunkbeds, sleeping pads, heat and lights.

Parks Canada has a total of 21 bookable units. These oTENTiks can accommodate up to four adults and two children.

These accommodations are exceptionally popular and must be reserved in advance.


An oTENTik is a semi-permanent wood framed canvas covered tent-like structure and contains many of the comforts you are used to at home.

Includes: two wooden chairs, a bench and a table, and one electric light. One electric baseboard heater to take the chill off (but do not provide full heat). Beds to sleep six (four adults, two children) along with rods/hooks for hanging clothes and bedding.

What to bring: sleeping bags, blankets and pillows, food, drinks and a water container (campground water is potable), cooking equipment, dishes, eating utensils, a cooler, flashlights, matches or a lighter to start a fire in the cooking shelter, camping chairs. Slippers or indoor shoes to keep a clean oTENTik.

Pets are permitted in oTENTiks #4A and #4B. All other oTENTiks are pet free.

A wheelchair-accessible tent is available.

Check-in is between 4 pm and 11 pm. Staff will be unavailable to check people into the oTENTiks outside of these times.
