Whether you’re looking to park your RV or pitch a tent, there are thousands of campsites close to fishing lakes to choose from. It’s the most affordable way to outsmart the fish and enjoy a one-of-a-kind stay in nature.
Now Northern BC Anglers can find camping information tied to their fishing lake of choice for:
- Private Campgrounds & RV Parks
- Provincial Parks
- Recreational Sites
Sean Simmons President, Angler’s Atlas elaborates “Angler’s Atlas caters to people who love to fish by giving them free fishing maps. Working with Camping and RV in BC, we’ve matched nearby campgrounds with our fishing destinations. We know anglers also love camping, so let’s make it easier for them to plan their trip.”
Joss Penny, Chair, Camping and RVing BC Coalition explained the partnership “British Columbia is considered a lake fishing paradise and our studies show how many campers’ fish. There are thousands of lakes scattered across the province and Anglers Atlas focuses on those that are accessible to the majority of angler’s, that is why teaming up with camping to find a place to stay near lakes makes sense”
This is a three year program to help integrate camping and fishing information. This first phase focuses on camping in Northern BC targeting underutilized campgrounds. Over the next few years partnership will expand that coverage for all campgrounds across BC.
