FREDERICTON, N.B. – A new online system for booking campground spots and cabins at provincial parks is now available.
"The system recently went live, and now that we have begun a new year, it is time to get the word out about it; how interactive a tool it is; and how it will add to the visitor experience," said Tourism, Heritage and Culture Minister Trevor Holder.
The system enables potential visitors to complete their reservation online. It was developed and is powered by Camis, a company that has provided the service to other provinces, neighbouring American states and Parks Canada for a number of years, with great success.
The system is simple to use. To help visitors choose, there are photos and details of each site. Visitors can reserve in advance and ensure they get the site they want; they do not have to wait at the entrance gate to complete their reservation; and there is no disappointment at finding the campsite they were hoping to get is already booked.
"The Department of Tourism, Heritage and Culture has committed to modernizing the provincial park system and improving the quality of the services we deliver, and this is one of several measures being undertaken to do just that," said Holder. "This system brings another of our services in line with what other provinces and the federal government are doing, and it enables visitors to see what our parks have to offer even before they arrive."
