Camp Free B.C. is published in Canada and written by Kathy and Craig Copeland of Canmore, Alberta. The book offers precise directions to hundreds of campgrounds in southern and central B.C. all accessible by two-wheel drive. Many are hidden a short distance off the main road, while others are tucked deep into the forest, perhaps near a glacier-fed lake. Camp Free not only gives you directions to the campgrounds, it tells you what to expect when you arrive and rates the sites from worthwhile destination to good for the weekend to useful as an overnight stop.

When coming into Grizzly Books & Serendipity Shop to pick up your copy of Camp Free B.C., be sure to peruse all the other great outdoor books and pocket guides, including Edible and Medicinal Plants of the Northwest, Edible Wild Plants, Mushrooms of North America and Lip Smackin’ Backpackin’ to name a few.
