The reselling of campsites on Facebook

June 18, 2021

As NWT residents continue to staycation and enjoy our spectacular parks, campsites are in high demand.


NWT Parks would like to caution NWT residents about buying and selling campsite reservations privately – and especially on social media sites. To protect yourself, any private transactions must be confirmed with the park contractor prior to your reservation date. 

Arriving at a park without a reservation (in your name) may result in delays or disappointment. Campers are reminded that it is illegal to camp or obtain a camping permit in somebody else name.


If you cannot go camping as planned, NWT Parks recommends that you cancel your reservation online so that you have a record of the financial transaction and that it can be rebooked by someone else. Cancellations can be made by logging into your parks account.  For help with this process please email and staff members will be happy to assist you.
