The subject pretty much says it all. Unfortunately, by the time we got around to making our reservations for this upcoming August long weekend all campsites were fully reserved (both private and provincial). We are considering risking it for first come, first served campsites but I thought some helpful replies could help give me an idea of our chances.
We are planning to leave from the greater Vancouver area first thing Thursday morning (July 31st) and stay 4 nights, returning Monday. Do we have a decent chance on landing a site due to the fact we are arriving early Thursday afternoon? Or are we still running a pretty high risk? I'm open to pretty much any tenting campsite as far up the highway as Earl's Cove.
I understand that due to the fact the Sunshine Coast is essentially 'landlocked', there's a finite amount of sites- if they are full, you are eventually out of additional options further down the road. Based on people's informed feedback, we may decide to try our chances with FCFS by heading to the interior.
I know it's a very subjective question- I appreciate your help. Just trying to get a feel for our chances with a Thursday afternoon availability going into this long weekend. :)
