A bit of an update
From a July 8 Maple Ridge news article
Campsites expanding - Maple Ridge News
"BC Parks will make changes to its online reservation system. Polak wants it to suggest other parks when campers find the sites they want are full, to create more awareness of other parks.
She said Parks will also close loopholes people have found in the online reservation system that allow them to book weeks ahead.
Popular sites may also see reservations reduced from a maximum of two weeks to just one week – as has already been done in some parks.
“I’m more concerned with the perception that people have that campsites are being taken over by overseas visitors,” she said.
Polak said the parks system is still 75 per cent B.C. users and 15 per cent Albertans.
Tour operators can book sites on behalf of clients, but are not allowed to book sites “on spec” she added. Those bookings will be cancelled by BC Parks, and the operator could be barred, she said.
So far BC Parks has seen 11 reports of campground scalping. In some cases people were advertising on public sale websites, and agreed to take the ads down."
