Hotels could be going up in BC parks

(Vancouver/CKWX News1130) - Checking out our provincial parks may soon include checking into a hotel. Environment Minister Barry Penner says it's entertaining the idea of putting up 'fixed-roof accomodations' at 12 sites around BC. He says they know that we have an aging population and a number of people have told him that it is not comfortable for them to sleep on the ground in a tent anymore. He says they still want to spend time in our parks and stay overnight, so the government is now going to ask the private sector to come forward with a number of proposals. Penner says they would have to meet strict environmental standards. He says the Lodge at Manning Park is a great example of what could work in one of our parks, and he adds, as we get closer to 2010, we should be considering what will draw people in. Two of the 12 sites on the table are Golden Ears near Vancouver, and Siver Star near Vernon.

i like the idea though

i don't have camping equipment and it would be nice to enjoy some BC parks in something like a cabin or yurt if youonly go once or twice a year

i know you can get them much cheaper than a hotel or motel in oregon and enjoy camping with a little more comforts
