Vanderhoof is surrounded by a multitude of recreational campsites. These sites were developed and are maintained by the Province of BC, and are found by accessing BC’s network of Forest Service Roads. They are free, unserviced, non-reservable campsites that are generally more rustic than Provincial Parks. A Backroads Mapbook is a must-have for road-trippers in BC, which maps out all the recreation sites and trails in the Province. You can purchase a Backroads Mapbook at the Vanderhoof Visitor Centre.
