Anyone hoping to book camping for Point Pelee National Park next year can book in February.

Parks Canada announced Wednesday camping reservations for the 2024 season will open on Feb. 2, which is earlier than last year. Bookings opened in March in 2023.

There are 24 oTENTik sites nestled in the heart of Point Pelee. The Parks Canada website says aAn oTENTik is a unique accommodation that provides a relaxing, comfortable, and easy camping experience. It’s a cross between an A-frame cabin and a prospector tent, on a raised wooden floor.
