On pccamping.ca (Reservation site for Parks Canada campgrounds) it shows the following for Tunnel Mtn Trailers Court:

"Trailer Court will not be accepting camping reservations for the 2012 season, due to construction. There may be a limited number of campsites available on a first come, first served basis only. Please check back with us in 2013 when Trailer Court will be accepting camping reservations once again."

I think I was on there a couple of weeks ago and this was not there then, IIRC. Anybody know more about this closure?

Am a little surprised. Stayed in 2010 and only a small portion was open and the rest were being rebuilt. At that time it appeared that the construction was nearing completion. Looked like they were only a week or so away from reopening.

Me to. I was there in 2011 and it was plenty busy, most of it open. I was planning going back this year, but now this?

From what I have found out, Village 1 and 2 are still open at Tunnel Mtn.

Village 1 is to the left of the main gate and is mostly all pavement and just water and power (IIRC). Village 2 has no services. The full service Tunnel Mtn Trailer Court is closed for reno's.

Definately a disapointment, however it has been many years since any upgrades have happened. (been camping there since the 70's) It has gotten very popular over the past 10-15 years. That's progress I guess.....
