Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park Camping
Within Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park are two main campgrounds and four remote campgrounds. The operating season is from late June to late September. MAGOG CAMPGROUND is just beyond Magog Lake’s west shore. It has 40 gravel tent pads, a cooking shelter, and water taps fed by a nearby spring. OG LAKE CAMPGROUND is 5.3 km north of Assiniboine Lodge on the Assiniboine via Citadel Pass trail. It has 10 gravel tent pads overlooking Og Lake, food storage boxes and a cooking area. Open fires are prohibited at both campgrounds. Reservations should be made as far in advance (up to four months) through BC Parks. BC Parks has a page dedicated to Mount Assiniboine camping information.
Campsites are in high demand, so you will need reservations. Do not assume there will be space and hike in hoping to get a spot to camp at Magog Lake or Og Lake. If you do arrive without a reservation, park wardens will direct you to one of four remote campgrounds that may be an hour or more on foot from Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park’s core area. These campgrounds have between 3 and 7 sites and no reservations are taken.
Mount Assiniboine campgrounds can be accessed on foot from the Mount Shark staging area or Sunshine Village, or by helicopter. For details of both options, see Getting to Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park.
