A backcountry adventure with a roof top tent brings freedom, fun and exhilaration like you’ve never experienced before. Trust us, you’ll never go back to the campground!

Why Choose Backcountry Camping?


No need to lock yourself into a campsite booking months in advance. You may not even know where you’re sleeping from one day to the next! Just hop in your vehicle and go. You’ll learn to embrace and appreciate a bit of uncertainty once you start exploring the thousands of hidden gems that British Columbia has to offer adventurous campers like you!


Roof-top tents remind us of treehouses — great fun for grown-ups and kids alike. Your little darlings will love climbing the ladder and cozying up at bedtime. Adults love the opportunity to open the skylights for stargazing or watching the sunrise. If you’re looking for rest and relaxation, slide off to dreamland knowing that the thick canvas walls of your roof-top tent function like blackout curtains. They’ll keep your tent dark and cool until you’re ready to welcome the day.


There’s nothing like getting away from the thrum of the city and out into nature, filling your senses with the sights, sounds, smells, tastes and touches of our incredible outdoors. Once you and your loved ones have made camp and settled around the campfire, telling tall tales or roasting marshmallows, you might be able to watch your everyday worries drift skyward in one of the thin plumes of smoke. And with a roof-top tent, you can go further. All the while, you’re secure in the knowledge that you’ll have a cozy, comfy sleeping nest waiting for you, and that you’re 100% self-reliant in your home away from home.

What are the benefits of using a roof top tent?

Reliable, even in bad weather

Unlike some ground tents, no amount of wind or rain will collapse a roof-top tent. You’ll stay clean and dry no matter what Mother Nature brings your way!

Quick and Easy Setup

After a long day of driving or adventuring, the last thing you want to do is start wrestling with pegs, poles and tools. No need with a roof-top tent, which sets up easily in less than five minutes. Before you know it, you’ll be kicking back, relaxing, and soaking up the scenery.


Set up wherever you like, without worrying that a sharp rock from the ground below your tent could ruin your sleep. Your sleeping surface will be comfortable and inviting. And because you’re off the ground, you won’t be visited by curious critters!

Your campsite options are limited only by your imagination

Say goodbye to crowded, noisy provincial campgrounds. Look forward to the serene, unspoiled beauty of wild camping on B.C.’s Crown Land. It’s legal, and it’s free!

So, what are you waiting for? There are eight weeks left of summer and your next adventure awaits!
