BURNABY, B.C. – If you’re a Droplet owner, you already know that there’s no better way to camp, states a press release from the teardrop travel trailer maker.
But sometimes, finding a campsite you love can be a challenge. With high demand and sites filling fast, not to mention the cost to reserve, it makes you wish there was a better way to find a spot to camp.
“Good news: now there is! We’re so excited to share that we have a new campsite in British Columbia that’s 100% free for all Droplet owners,” the release states.
Let’s look closer at this campsite, and how to reserve your spot today. (Don’t worry. If you aren’t a Droplet owner, you can still stay at this site.)
Droplet is all about making camping more accessible for everybody. Since the earliest days of Droplet, our founder Pascal has had a dream: to have a free campsite for all Droplet owners. We’re thrilled to announce that now, that dream is a reality, according to the release
The campsite is located north of Vancouver, BC in Lillooet. It sits on a 300-acre ranch property in the unspoiled wilderness of the Yalakom Valley. This private campsite is the perfect place to get away and enjoy the peace with some creekside camping.
The Droplet campsite features a food prep counter, an outhouse, deck, and shade, plus LED lighting and more.
The Droplet campsite features an outhouse, deck, and shade, plus LED lighting, a food prep counter, and a Solo Stove fire pit. Campers can enjoy 1,500 feet of creekside, or take a short 15-minute trip to one of the surrounding lakes. Other recreation opportunities at the site include hiking, biking, fishing and in the winter, cross-country skiing and low-impact snowshoeing trails.
To help make the campsite the best it can be, Droplet worked with students at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Two groups totaling 20 students were involved in creating the initial concept for the campsite. Thanks to these brilliant young minds, the new campsite is beautifully made with quality craftsmanship and chic designs.
As a part of the project, thermally treated hemlock ThermoWood from Scottywood was used. Hemlock is a lower-value wood obtained from the forestry industry that’s not typically used for construction.
Through heat treatment, the protein in the wood is removed. This prevents decay and creates the perfect material for the furniture and platform at the Droplet campsite.
If you’re not a Droplet owner (yet), you can still rent this campsite. Head over to the campsite’s Hipcamp page.
When at the site, keep in mind that check-in is at 1 pm, and check-out is at 11 am. One additional RV is allowed, and the site is pet friendly. No motorized vehicles, such as ATVs and snowmobiles, are allowed.
