There are some exciting updates from BC Parks planned for this year in E.C. Manning Provincial Park. We are happy to share some of the great news that BC Parks has announced:
Hampton Campground continues to get some incredible upgrades to complement the new wash houses that were installed last year. This May, plans are in motion to build a kid’s bike park as well as a playground. Now with expanded views, wash house and more sites, Hampton is proving to be a coveted camping spot!
Lone Duck group facility now has two beautiful, brand new shelters that were built last spring, as well as large wash sinks installed. The final touches will be completed this spring completing this project.
Buckhorn backcountry camp is being looked at for an expansion, with an upgraded shelter, similar to that of the Lone Duck campsite.
BC Parks has also unrolled their Student Ranger Program. This program will bring 6 student rangers to Manning Park to assist with trail maintenance.
Lots of plans are in place for maintaining and renovating trails. We are excited and supportive of the great efforts of BC Parks, as well as the Friends of Manning Park group that volunteers an incredible amount of work in the park!
