Designated camp lots are parcels of Crown land that have been designated by the Minister to be used solely as camp lots. The lots are generally 0.4 hectares (1 acre) each and are organized in clusters (lots with shared boundaries) or groups (lots more widely spaced) across the province. Lot availability can be found on the Map button on this page, or by contacting the Crown Lands Branch at 1-888-312-5600.

A camp is a dwelling for recreational use that is constructed or installed on a designated camp lot. The camp structure must be built in accordance with the Building Code Administration Act and the National Building Code adopted in its regulation. The camp cannot be used for commercial use or as a principal residence.
Camp lot lessees must obey the terms and conditions of their lease including full payments of annual rental and property taxes, adherence to building requirements, boundary line maintenance, and site rehabilitation. Gates are permitted only on the lot boundary.

Rental rates for camp lots can be found in the Lands Administration Regulation, Crown Lands and Forests Act.
