Jayne Seagrave—author of the bestselling Camping British Columbia and Yukon—is back with a book that only an avid camper with children could write. Camping with Kids in the West: BC and Alberta’s Best Family Campgrounds is the definitive guide for parents who want to introduce their children to the wonders of nature and create family memories that will last a lifetime.
With over fifteen years of camping experience with her own two children, both now in their teens, Jayne is an expert on the fine art of family camping. Camping with Kids in the West includes practical information about twenty-five of the best family-friendly national and provincial campgrounds—from Alice Lake and Shuswap Lake in BC to the Bow Valley and Dinosaur National Park in Alberta. All campgrounds listed are easily accessible by car or RV, are relatively close to amenities like grocery stores and medical services, and come with recreational opportunities for all ages and skill levels. Speaking from her vast personal experience and meticulous research, Jayne addresses the wonderful benefits (and potential challenges) of camping with kids of every age—from toddlers to tweens to teens.
