What is better than leaving your stresses behind and completely disconnecting yourself from the outside world? I sure can’t think of anything. Camping gives you the opportunity to face new challenges, go on wild adventures, get a good night’s sleep and exercise.

For some of you, bugs in your hair, dirty clothes and the wilderness are just not your cup of tea. But for the rest of you, venturing out into rainforests, swimming under beautiful waterfalls and experiencing spectacular scenery is an adventure of a lifetime.

Good news, for those of you who would rather stay in a hotel than pitch a tent, these camping destinations have you covered. Some of them provide you with options to lodge in luxury; yes, you can stay in a comfortable tent with heat and hot showers.

For those of you who are excited to pitch your tent, well get ready for the adventure of a lifetime. Fall asleep in the wilderness, stay warm around the campfire and admire the wildlife surrounding you.

Try out a new water sport, go canoeing and cycling. Then put on your hiking gear because Boya Lake Provincial Park has two hiking trails. The Lakeshore Trail leaves from the north end of the park and the Beaver Lodge Trail leaves from the south end of the park. Both trails are 1.5 km in length. *Bonus: Beware of your surroundings, you may see some incredible wildlife.
