oTENTik Campground Reservations



Parks Canada oTENTik – Discover a unique camping experience!

Welcome to a whole new way of camping. No more squabbles over lost tent pegs, no more struggling to remember which pole goes where. Parks Canada oTENTiks blend the best of camping with A-frame cabins to create a spacious spot for you to enjoy. All of our oTENTiks come standard with three comfy sleeping platforms with space for up to six happy campers, and a table with seating for six. Some oTENTiks also include woodstoves, perfect for those cooler nights. Every oTENTik campsite has an outdoor campfire spot and a picnic table to enjoy.
