Highway Driving in BC: Take a Break and Rest Awhile!

Rest Area CranbrookSafe driving on long trips means taking regular breaks to rest your mind and body.

Driver fatigue is a major cause of vehicle crashes, so try to take a 15-minute break about every two hours. Stretch your legs, move around and revive. Have a beverage (non-alcoholic, of course) and maybe something to eat.

Whenever you’re on the road, watch for signs of fatigue like:

  • tired eyes
  • wandering concentration
  • yawning
  • drowsiness
  • restlessness
  • slow reaction time
  • over-steering

Across the province, the ministry has about 170 rest areas, for you to take a short break. All of our rest areas are equipped with garbage cans and toilets – ranging from classic rustic pit toilets, to compost toilets, to full-flush facilities. The majority have picnic tables and some rest areas even have trails and scenic lookouts.

Another great place to take a break from the road is a provincial park. Many are not far off the highway. They provide not only the amenities of a rest area, but usually running water, short trails and sometimes even a lake in which to take a refreshing plunge. So, if you’re feeling groggy, it’s time to get off the highway and recharge! Take care out there folks and enjoy the drive!

    Hello, Would u generally say that BC rest areas are safe for a family for a short stay during day or night? Thank you!

    • tranbceditor on April 16, 2019 at 9:54 am

      Hi there Ram. BC Rest Areas are not meant for overnight camping, but short stays of four hours or less, day or night are acceptable. If you are looking for overnight camping, BC Parks has many campgrounds across the province with amenities.

    I am going to be traveling from Kelowna, BC thru to Grande Pararie Alberta the first of Aug this summer. I am not a “experienced” driver that much lol I am wondering if there is somewhere I can get the names of all the rest stops on the way. And is there somewhere I can find the list of gas stations on this highway. I am from New Brunswick and have never driving out this way before.

    • tranbceditor on March 20, 2017 at 1:35 pm

      Hi Michelle,

      Thanks for connecting with us here. Sounds like you are heading off onto a big adventure.
      BC Rest Areas can all be found on the map at this page: https://www.th.gov.bc.ca/restareas/
      If you click on the icon for each rest area, you will see a window of information about the facilities which are available there.
      If this is your first trip to BC, we encourage you to check our traveller information website, DriveBC. We have road condition information and webcams which will keep you up to speed on highway conditions. We don’t have any information about gas stations along the way, but you could probably find more information like that with a quick google search. Our last bit of advice is give yourself plenty of time, so you don’t have to rush and enjoy!

    We are leaving from Langley BC for Terrace BC, in late June, via #1 to Cache Creek, to the 97 to Prince George, to the 16 Terrace. We are hauling a 34 foot 5th wheel, pulled by a GM Silverado Diesel truck. Is there enough places along this route to get diesel, especially on the 97? Would you please sent me a list of the rest areas along my route? Would you say this is not a bad route with our 5th wheel? Thank you for your response, Al.

    • tranbceditor on February 20, 2017 at 12:37 pm

      Hello Albinas,

      Thanks for connecting with us here. Sounds like a great trip with your fifth wheel. We can’t say for sure if there will be diesel at each station along your planned route, but there will be plenty of gas stations to be sure. You might want to check in with Petro Can or Shell or the like and confirm the fuel they supply along the route. Our BC Rest Area interactive map shows plenty of rest areas along the way. If you zoom in on the map and click on the rest area icon, a pop up box will display details about the services available there. Lastly, we encourage you to check DriveBC for any road condition or delays that might impact your travel. Happy trails!

    Unfortunately although we are only 10 minutes outside of Lillooet we tend to be “out of sight, out of mind” to any gov’t agency when there is an issue in this area.I’m finding that the most frustrating aspect with this whole process is the inability to find any information, from anyone on who, how and where to address this concern.I did have a conversation with the area manager concerning this issue when it initially occurred and received absolutely no feedback or information from him. Could you please refer me to someone who is in a more senior position than our local area manager that I may contact in order to have a discussion with them concerning this issue.If I am writing to the wrong department you have my sincerest apologies, as I do not wish to clutter up your information page but when you don’t get to have a dialogue with the people in charge it becomes most frustrating. If you would, please point me in the right direction.
    Thank you

  5. barb on February 7, 2017 at 4:27 pm

    Thanks for getting back to me about this. The motor home is parked on the right side of the highway heading towards Lytton on Highway 12, approx.71/2 kilometers from the junction heading into Lillooet. That would be heading south on highway 12. As of this Thursday it will be one month, continuously that he has been there. He does mining over the hill from where he is parked, my concern is the potential of him squatting there indefinately, encouraging others to do the same. I have read on your site that there is no overnight parking allowed in your rest areas which come equipped with waste disposal facilities and trash disposal cans, neither of which is located at this pullout. It is also an area that is frequented by tourists in the summer season, having a rest break and this is no longer possible.As I mentioned before, there is a nice campground just around the corner from where he is parked that is open year round and which contains the above mentioned facilities. Thank you again for responding to my email and I look forward to hearing from you again.

    • tranbceditor on February 8, 2017 at 11:23 am

      Thanks for this information Barb. We have shared it forward with the local area manager for review.

  6. barb on February 4, 2017 at 2:16 pm

    Is it legal to camp on the side a public highway for extended periods of time, like a month or longer? What is the time limit if there is such a thing? There is a campground a very short distance from where this person is camping in a motor home and my concern is that he will be setting up camp for an indefinate length of time. No comment forthcoming from local Dept. of Highways.
    Thank you

    • tranbceditor on February 7, 2017 at 11:54 am

      Hi Barb. Thanks for sharing your concern. Where exactly is the vehicle parked? What highway and location?

  7. Akbar on June 15, 2016 at 7:01 am

    We are travelling from Calgary to Vancouver and were wondering is there are any rest areas in b/w. As travelling with small children it would be great if such list is provided.

    • tranbceditor on June 15, 2016 at 11:01 am

      Hi Akbar,

      I am sorry – I am not sure what you mean by b/w? Here’s a list of rest areas in BC:http://www.th.gov.bc.ca/restareas/

      Our traveller information website, DriveBC is also a great source of information and has rest area information as well.

      • Akbar on June 15, 2016 at 8:19 pm

        Thank you. B/W means between.
        Are there any rest areas between the route of Calgary to Vancouver. thanks.

        • tranbceditor on June 16, 2016 at 9:53 am

          Gotcha! There are many rest areas between the two points and we encourage you to check out the link in our last comment and compare your planned route with the rest areas along it. BC Parks and BC Visitor Info centres also have rest areas for visitors. Hope that this helps. Have a great trip!

  8. Lisa on May 21, 2016 at 7:12 am

    A KMZ file of the pullouts would help us plan our trip. Please send one as soon as possible since we’re leaving in about 10 days. Thanks in advance.

    • tranbceditor on May 24, 2016 at 10:03 am

      Hi again Lisa,

      We have sent the files to your email. Happy trails!

  9. Lisa on May 14, 2016 at 9:45 am

    I’ll be travelling on highway 99 from Whistler to Lilloet in a 28 foot motorhome. I understand that the road is of the twisty windy sort and that there are some steep grades to negotiate. I’ve looked on the BC rest area website and it shows no rest areas along this section of highway. It seems that the only places to pull off the road to allow the brakes to cool are a couple of provincial parks. I would like to know if there are pull-outs along this highway where we can park the motorhome safely for a short while.

    • tranbceditor on May 16, 2016 at 11:51 am

      Hi Lisa,

      We are looking into this for you. Stay tuned.

    • tranbceditor on May 17, 2016 at 11:27 am

      Hi Lisa,

      Our data shows that there are a handful layovers (or pullouts) traveling eastbound from Whistler to Pemberton which will accommodate your motor home and a couple along the shores of Duffey Lake (past Joffre Lake Provincial Campground). Hope that this helps. Our data files for pullouts are in KMZ format. If you would like us to send you a KMZ file to view on Google Earth, let us know and we can do that for you. Hope that this helps!

  11. Ann on April 22, 2016 at 3:42 pm

    Hi, thanks for the site and info you provide – it’s very helpful! We are planning a vacation through BC, Yukon and Alaska and are gathering information.

    Replying to Charles a bit above, you said “We have done some digging and have found that not all rest areas have “no camping” signs posted.” Where can I access a list of rest stops that do not forbid camping? We’d rather not camp in them (in our self-contained van) but it would be useful to know their locations in the event that need to drive late into the evening. I’d hate to arrive exhausted and find we can’t have a 6 or 7 hour sleep before continuing. Thank you.

    • tranbceditor on April 25, 2016 at 10:19 am

      Hi Ann,

      Thanks for your question. No camping signs are posted in rest areas which have had issues with overnight stays, but overnight camping is discouraged in all BC rest areas, regardless if there are signs or not. You are free to use any BC Rest Area to catch zzzz’s while you are travelling, but we try to discourage motorists from using rest areas for more than four hours at a time. Rest areas can be dark, secluded and remote which lead to safety concerns regarding those camping overnight. BC Parks have many campsites available to travellers day or night and we encourage you to camp overnight there. Hope this helps.

  12. S Harris on March 31, 2016 at 3:55 am

  16. Charles Parent on February 4, 2016 at 1:39 pm

    You have stated that overnight camping is not allowed in rest areas, however I call your attention to BC Supreme Court case: S159480 where it was ruled that the homeless have the right to camp overnight in any public area as long as the camping structure(s) are removed by 9am the following day. As MOTI rest areas and truck yards are indeed public property, this ruling applies to them, and as such, there is a legal right for persons whom are homeless to camp overnight in them. The court never defined the qualifications for whom is or isn’t homeless, and it refused to define homelessness.
    By running people out of the rest areas for overnight camping, the MOTI is therefore in violation of this ruling.

    • tranbceditor on February 5, 2016 at 9:12 am

      Hi Charles,

      Good question. We are looking into this for you. Stay tuned.

    • tranbceditor on February 5, 2016 at 1:17 pm

      Hi Charles,

      We have done some digging and have found that not all rest areas have “no camping” signs posted. Often they are posted when it’s found that longer-term camping is becoming a problem at a particular rest area. Rest areas can be dark, secluded and remote which lead to safety concerns regarding those camp overnight. Overall, in terms of overnight stays, rest areas were originally envisioned for motorists who are too tired to continue driving and need to pull over and rest for a few hours, but we don’t believe that those who are homeless are turned away. Alternatively, BC Parks campgrounds cover the province and are accessible day and night to travellers seeking inexpensive camping. Hope that this helps!

  17. Tasha on July 12, 2015 at 3:25 pm

    Hello I was wondering if there is a list of the off the highway camp spots I remember there is on by Oliver and ok falls ,
    Also by summer land and peachland and have been trying to locate a list of other camping pullovers.
    I’m not really sure what they would be classified as. Cause there almost a cross between a rest stop and a campground.
    They usually have 4-8 spots to pitch a tent. Any clue to what I should be searching for would be appreciated

    • tranbceditor on July 13, 2015 at 11:26 am

      Hi Tasha,

      Camping is not allowed in BC rest areas, so you might be thinking of a BC Parks campground or a private campground? Here is the link to campsites in BC via BC Parks: http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/

      Hope it helps!

  18. Sandra on May 22, 2015 at 12:00 pm

    Wondering why there are no rest rooms on Highway 97C on the Merritt to Kelowna side? There are 2 on the Kelowna to Merritt side. If you stop at the Info Centre (just outside Merritt) there is nothing until the next Info Centre near the end of this route – but more often than not, this place is closed, so not very helpful. At least one would be nice along the route 🙂

    • tranbceditor on May 22, 2015 at 2:35 pm

      Hi Sandra,

      Thanks for connecting with us here! Our BC on the Move document identifies rest area development and enhancement as a high priority for British Columbians and we will be examining the needs along BC corridors, including this stretch of highway. Thanks and stay tuned!

      • Neil on July 24, 2015 at 2:22 pm

        Why is there no over nighting in BC. We travel extensively in the USA and have found VERY few rest stops that do not permit over nighting. When travelling in BC in the summer/fall season it is virtually impossible to get a campsite. Are you suggesting that it is better to drive tired for hours on end in the hopes that you may find a campground prior to having an accident or falling asleep? Why is there not a map of the rest areas that you can print out. With limited mobile service in many areas in BC and terrible signage advising of upcoming Rest Areas how is a traveler to ascertain where the nest stop is?

  19. DUNSTAN BRIGGS on April 9, 2015 at 8:03 pm

    We will be traveling in a 27′ motor home from Calgary to Victoria. We will have to stop and overnight about 600 kilometers west of Calgary. Where would we stop?

    Dunstan Briggs

    • tranbceditor on April 10, 2015 at 5:55 pm

      Hi Dunstan,

      Kamloops is about halfway to Victoria — 619 km from Calgary. My experiences of driving between Calgary and Victoria are that Kamloops/Merritt area are about halfway there. (You’ll spend time waiting for the ferry at Tsawwassen to sail to Schwartz Bay.)

      Here is a link to our Rest Area Map: http://www.th.gov.bc.ca/restareas/ Overnight camping is not allowed in rest areas, but you can take breaks and snooze if you need to. BC Parks has many, many beautiful places to camp overnight, check them all out here: http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/visiting/

      You might want to use the DriveBC Plan Your Route Feature just before you leave http://www.drivebc.ca/directions.html. It will give you a rundown of what’s along with way, including rest stops, road conditions and current and forecast weather.

      Safe journey!

    I am very disappointed to see actual picture of so called rest aras.
    It’s 3rd grade joke for Bc. Ab. Travelers. Bc residents pay lot’s of
    tax and see the trans Canada hwy ( not hwy only single road).it is
    such a shame fo Bc and trans Canada hwy authority. ..

    I am glad to hear a list is being complied of the rest stops, unfortunately I will be needing a few along my route from Calgary to Abbotsford very soon.
    Could a list for that route be generated please 🙂

    also a suggestion, once the full list is ready, have someone compile it into a POI database for use with GPS devices. This would make it especially useful.
    Thank you

  27. M on August 1, 2013 at 6:03 pm

    Hello! We will be driving from Edmonton to Prince George in January. Are the BC rest areas on the Yellowhead open year round or do they close in the winter? Also, can you let us know where the rest areas are between Jasper and Prince George? Thanks in advance for your assistance!

    • tranbceditor on August 8, 2013 at 10:51 am

      Hello there! We are currently working on producing a rest area map for BC highways and hope to have it ready for the public in the next few weeks. Please check back in with us around the third week of August!

    May I sleep in my car overnight at a rest area?

    • tranbceditor on July 23, 2013 at 11:15 am

      Hi Bonnie.

      Overnight camping is not allowed in rest areas. BC Parks has many campsites available to travellers and we encourage you to camp overnight there. You are allowed to rest in rest areas for a few hours at a time in order to refresh yourself during your travels, but you might be roused by maintenance contractors looking to ensure you are not camping overnight. Hope that this helps!

      • Darren Bender on July 5, 2016 at 12:11 pm

        I’m going on a vacation soon heading from Medicine Hat, AB to Campbell River, BC. The same vacation I used to take with my parents growing up. There used to be a rest stop about mid way through the trip where I think the Park Bridge is now. That rest stop was more like a free campground that people could pull in with their trailers, spend the night, and move along in the morning. I think it got demolished with the construction of the new Park Bridge and it’s a real shame that you’re not allowed to spend the night at the new rest stop there now. Why was the old rest stop removed? FYI I’m going to take my chances spending the night in the new one anyway. If truckers can spend the night at their rest stops why can’t people pulling a camper. sleeping in a car, tenting etc spend the night.

        • tranbceditor on July 7, 2016 at 4:36 pm

          Hi Darren,

          I’ve contacted the local operations manager to get some info on this for you. Keep you posted.

        • tranbceditor on July 8, 2016 at 11:23 am

          Hi Darren,
          Thanks for your comment. The rest area you’re referring to was the old Yoho Rest Area. This was a pull through site, hidden in the trees with two pit toilets, but this portion of Highway #1 no longer exists. With the construction of the new Trans Canada Highway alignment east of Golden, a new and upgraded rest area was constructed (aka the Kicking Horse Rest Area). Please check this one out on your travels.
          As for overnight “camping”, this was not permitted at the old Yoho Rest Area, although some travellers may have used it as such. Most rest areas in the province have a “please limit your stay to 8 hours” sign and many also have “no overnight camping”.
          Your analogy to a commercial truck driver sleeping in a rest area may seem similar, however commercial operators are bound by law related to driving hours. This isn’t so for travellers pulling trailers.
          Safe travels.

  29. Sheryl on July 6, 2013 at 9:06 pm

    Can you email me a list of rest areas with toilets on the Crowsnest Highway. Especially between Castlegar and Creston.

    • tranbceditor on July 9, 2013 at 4:44 pm

      Hi Sheryl,
      Just sent along the email. Hopefully it’s what you were looking for.

  30. Maureen on July 4, 2013 at 11:48 am

    Hello, we are travelling from Victoria BC to Edmonton Alberta, travelling the upper route through Jasper. Would you please send me a list of rest stops prior to July 12, 2013.

    Thank you very much!!

    • tranbceditor on July 5, 2013 at 1:36 pm

      Hello Maureen,

      We apologize for not having rest area information more readily available for you, but we are working toward building a map with a comprehensive listing of designated rest areas and their amenities.

      For now we can only manually extract a list of rest areas that are under provincial jurisdiction. There exist many more that are provided by municipalities, by the federal government (such as in national parks) and even ones that are provided privately such as truck stops associated with large gas stations. Information about these others is not currently available to us.

      I am making a few assumptions about your trip. First I am assuming that your route will be hwy 1 to hope (Trans-Canada), hwy 5 to Kamloops (Coquihalla), hwy 5 to Tete Jaune Cache, thence Hwy 16 (Yellowhead) to Edmonton. Because of the nature of these routes, I have listed rest areas accessible only east and north bound up to Kamloops, assuming that rest areas in the opposite direction may not be accessible. North of Kamloops I’ve listed rest areas for both directions.


      I should also note that there are many other road side features such as pull-outs, scenic stops and such that do not qualify as designated rest areas. These are also not listed here.

      • Maureen on July 8, 2013 at 6:05 am

        Yes, thank you very much, this is perfect, and yes this is the route we will be taking…

  31. Rick on June 27, 2013 at 11:09 am

    Could you provide a list of rest stop locations on HWY 5 north from Kamloops to Tete Juane Cache and then from there to the Alberta border on HWY 16?

  32. Ann on June 23, 2013 at 11:14 pm

    Just to let people know, I actually began producing my own map back in 2008. Unfortunately I moved away from bc, and I mostly have it on paper but I had put in about 25 rest areas between kamloops and Edmonton. You can find it on google maps – if you go to google maps then get to the “my maps” interface. Then search on “rest areas and washrooms between Vancouver and Edmonton”. You should be able to find my map. I am so surprised this still has not been done yet.

  33. Brian Hunter on June 17, 2013 at 10:02 am

    You should publish a list of rest areas and their locations. You have all the information readily available in the road and bridge maintenance contracts in the service area inventories and the road features inventory. The rest area locations could also be put on a map. Don’t just tell us to use them; instead show them on a map

    • tranbceditor on June 18, 2013 at 11:09 am

      Thanks for the suggestion Brian. We are in the process of building a map of rest areas across the province right now and hope to have it ready for you to use soon. We will share it widely and freely when it is complete. Let us know if you have any other questions or concerns!

  34. Shirley on May 24, 2013 at 11:20 am

    You mention there are over 170 rest areas on BC Highways, but nowhere can I find a list of them or map of their location or info on how large they are and what facilities they have, etc. We are planning on travelling with a 30′ travel trailer so it will be important for us to know where we can stop en route, with adequate access etc. Is there a map of the rest stops you can provide, and details on facilities etc.?

    • tranbceditor on May 30, 2013 at 3:24 pm

      Hi Shirley,
      We are currently working on producing just such a thing, however it is not quite ready. Sorry about that! If you wanted to let us know which highways you will be travelling on, we may be able to give you some information in the meantime. All of the rest areas we include in our inventory are defined as locations which have toilet facilities, however there may be other municipal and private “rest areas” or “pull outs” which will not be in our list. Hope that this helps!

            Overnight camping is not allowed in rest areas, but you can take breaks and snooze if you need to. BC Parks has many, many beautiful places to camp overnight, check them all out here: http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/visiting/

        Could you please forward me a list of rest spots from Vancouver to Osoyoos going the hope Princeton way. I have been looking everywhere. Surprised they aren’t listed online to help travellers. Thx

        I would ‘second the motion” to produce a nice map, and maybe a mobile app for finding rest stops. I am somewhat surprised that at least my Garmin GPS also has not search category for rest areas.

            Hi Desiree,
            We created this interactive rest area map some time ago that may help: http://www.th.gov.bc.ca/restareas/

    The rest stop at Welgress near Grand Forks BC can only be described as
    filthy and disgusting. We have stopped there twice in the last year and both
    times,have regretted it!!! I do not understand having the facility if it is
    not cleaned or maintained.

    Please put larger change tables in public restrooms. We have a little lady who is now 6 and needs to be changed if you are truly going to accomodate handicapped persons we need to be able to have a larger change tbale for them. Thanks Kristine Victoria B.C.

      Hi there Kristine,

      Thanks for the feedback and we can certainly understand your concern. Did you visit a specific highway rest area in particular which was not equipped fully? Is there a specific type of table you require for changing?
