Rates & Reservations

Camping in Carbon (May – October)

ONLINE RESERVATIONS

Online reservations will once again be our primary system method for reserving campsites at our two campgrounds,.  The Village of Carbon has worked with Camp Reservations Canada over the fall and winter in order to improve the experience you have while booking your campsite online and we are positive you will appreciate the many changes. The reservation site has been completely re-programmed in a more modern computer language, it is much more intuitive and user friendly. You will also find that making a reservation directly on your smart phone is extraordinarily straightforward. Best of all, you can now reserve up to 3 campsites in the same Check Out Cart.

The Camp Reservations Canada website will be open up online reservations for Carbon’s 2 campgrounds on Friday, February 1st, promptly at 8 a.m.

As was the case last year, it is recommended that you log into Camp Reservations Canada well before February 1st to create your 2019 Traveler login and password. In this way, you can be logged in to your profile as soon as reservations open and more quickly make your reservations. For the best performance, we recommend that you use Google Chrome as you web browser.

TELEPHONE RESERVATIONS

Online reservations are the preferred method to reserve campsites, but we will still accept telephone reservations. The answering machine will be available starting at 8 a.m. on February 1st for those that do not want to use Camp Reservations Canada to make your reservation online. We will only start listening to messages and returning calls at 9 a.m. on Monday, February 4th, so we highly encourage everyone to use the online system if there is a particular weekend and/or campsite you want to book. In 2018, there were nearly 100 online reservations in the first couple of hours, so when we do return the calls, there will be very limited availability of campsites for long weekends.

In the case of Group Reservations by telephone, the group member making the reservation will have to pay (VISA or Mastercard) for ALL the sites being reserved at the time of the booking and there will be absolutely no exceptions. This group member will then be responsible for collecting any money from members of their party. This group member will also be responsible for campsite allocation.
