Generator use in Canadian Parks

We are planning a trip to Canada next year and are wondering what the rules are for generator use in the Canadian parks.

It varies by park system and park, just like in the US. Look up the ones you're interested in on their websites and the rules are available for each location.

Been through all the continental states and provinces. Rinse and repeat. Present coach 2018 VTDP 3407.

Yep, quiet time, is quiet time or out you go. That's goes for noise of most types. The parks system is for people who don't like to make noise. We found that out a younger age. Might be better suited for that now that Im older.

I see from your profile that your rig is 38' so in most national parks the campgrounds you will fit in likely will have power so you won't need the generator.

If you happen to be travelling through British Columbia, most BC Provincial Parks do not have hook-ups. If travelling through Ontario, bring along 30/50 amp extension cords. I've been caught short.

Generators in Canada

we have stayed in about 12 Government campgrounds in Alberta and BC, most do not have powered sites. the people that come to these like P&Q our old Itasca has 4 6 volt batteries; no need to start our generator for a week. the onboard Gen Set is a noisy 5500 Onan I very seldom use it. but if I need to charge the batterys I have a small 1000 watt Honda that just hums. we sit outside unless weathers bad,never used the AC units inside it at all in 4 yrs now.

BC Juniper Beach Provincial Park, off Hwy 1/97 between Cache Creek and Kamloops has water and 30 amp electric at most sites.

Juniper Beach Provincial Park - BC Parks

A smaller park right on the Thompson River, and between 2 busy railroad tracks.
A true desert like setting and temps well over 100f common in summer.
