BCLCA Annual Occupancy and Rate Survey

A survey of BC Lodging and Campgrounds Association (BCLCA) members and non members who have 10 or more campsites and lodging units is conducted annually by Align Consulting Group each January. 

The purpose of the survey is to better understand the overall performance of campgrounds and lodging versus the previous year and to predict trends for the upcoming year.

Survey Details

The survey is sent to campgrounds and lodging by Align Consulting each January.  Approximately 100 operators have participated in each of the past few years.

The survey asks about occupancy, trends; upcoming bookings; rates etc., to help us better understand how operators are running their businesses and using practices such as cancellation policies, lock fees, and websites to improve performance and revenues.

The information quantifies the health of the camping industry and helps BC Lodging and Campgrounds Association (BCLCA) deliver services and advocate for change.
