Yes, wild camping is legal in British Columbia. Dispersed or wild camping is allowed on Crown land, which makes up approximately 94% of the province. Campers can stay at a site for up to 14 days before having to move at least 100 meters away. It is important to follow Leave No Trace principles and adhere to any local regulations or restrictions. In addition to Crown land, BC also offers numerous provincial parks and recreation sites, where camping fees and regulations may apply. For more camping options in BC, visit Hipcamp.
