In line with the provincial park strategy for campgrounds, the City of Terrace will move to the next step in re-opening the Ferry Island Campground. While we would love to allow all guests to visit us, we are taking a staggered approach to opening the campground.

On Monday, June 1, Ferry Island Campground will be open for all residents of British Columbia. We are following the lead of BC Parks, with the goal of minimizing non-essential travel, as per the guidelines of our trusted health authorities in the provincial government.

Here are some important things you need to know if you want to camp:


  • The person reserving the site must be planning to camp—reserving sites for others will not be permitted.
  • Identification will be required on arrival. Anyone showing up without identification or who does not live in BC will not be allowed to camp.
  • Registration will take place outdoors by debit or cash only.

Permitted Site Users:

  • Campers may be in self-contained units (trailers, motor homes, etc) or tents.
  • Only one self-contained unit or tent will be allowed per site.

Campsite Activities:

  • The washrooms will be open for campers only; however, showers will remain closed. Outhouses remain open for walkers.
  • Guests must maintain the two-metre physical distancing from any other guests who are not in the same household.

For the safety of all guests, the campground operator will be wearing gloves and wiping the debit machine after use. Hand sanitizer will be available. In addition, we will be regularly disinfecting the washrooms, water taps, garbage can lids, and the outhouses that remain open for walkers. After campers check out, the operator will wipe down picnic tables to get ready for the next guests.

Thanks for your co-operation and understanding. If we all continue to do our part to minimize unnecessary travel, stay home if we’re sick, and maintain physical distancing with those whom we don’t live with, we will hopefully reach a point soon when we can open up the campground for all visitors!
