All campsites at Chain Lake Provincial Park are 100% reservable.

When camping in a powered site:

  • Use 1-2 electrical appliances maximum at the same time. When campers lose power, it's usually because too much electricity is being used at once.
  • Do not use adapters to draw power from a 15 amp for an RV with a 30 amp plug.
  • Have a backup plan. Use other methods to cook, stay cool/warm and keep entertained.

Remember, conserving electricity and timing when you use your electricity in a campsite will ensure you can stay powered. Get more information about using power sites.

Due to scheduled system maintenance, no bookings are being taken for arrivals past Feb 10, 2024. We apologize for the inconvenience. An update will be provided in early 2024.

For safety reasons, only communal fire pits are available, subject to appropriate weather conditions. There are four communal pits, one in the centre of each camping loop. A limited daily supply of firewood is supplied at no extra cost. NOTE: Propane fire pits are not permitted. 


The sewage disposal fee is $6 (one and two dollar coins, and quarters accepted).


Pending weather, normal water service is available by the May long weekend. To support water conservation and as a backup measure, campers and day users are encouraged to bring a supply of drinking water.
