The Camp Alert platform was created by a resident of B.C. to help locals book their favorite campsite. Since provincial parks were closed for a long duration amid the ongoing global pandemic, once they re-opened, a record-breaking number of campers booked their campsite as soon as they re-opened. This makes it difficult for users to find an open campsite to book.
Using the free platform is simple. Simply indicate when and where you want to camp and set up an alert. Once a campsite opens in your desired location and timeline, you will receive either an e-mail or text message alerting you. Upon receiving the notification, you can click the included link and book a campsite through the official booking website.
There is also a paid subscription of the platform available, allowing users to set a flexible timeline and increasing the odds of finding a suitable campsite.
