Travel Advisories

As a first step in planning your trip to Ucluelet, it’s a good idea to check for travel advisories, including active firebans and backroad camping advisories.

Total outdoor burning prohibition effective Friday July 12, 2024 @12:00pm.

This prohibition will remain in effect until Thursday October 31st, 2024 at 12:00pm or until the order is rescinded.

Fresh water is precious resource on the West Coast, while Ucluelet’s water reserve is healthy, we encourage sustainable water practices.

How To Be Water Wise: 

-Take a shorter shower

-Re-use towels and linens

-Flush the toilet only when necessary “if its yellow- let it settle, if its… well, you know the rest 🙂 ”

-Turn off the water while brushing your teeth

-Where possible, keep a cool jug of water in the fridge instead of running the tap

-When dining out, consider ordering water by the glass instead of a carafe, to avoid waste

Highway 4 at Cameron Lakes is open to traffic in both directions. Check for the latest conditions.

Before coming to Ucluelet please make sure you’ve booked your accommodations/campsites in advance so you can make the most out of your time in the West Coast. Avoid backroad camping to help us keep the community and forest safe. Thank you!
