POI File for BC Forest Service Campgrounds: Canada

I have the POI for BC provincial parks, but am looking for a POI file with the BC Forest Service Campgrounds.

Anyone have one they would share or can you point me in the direction of where one might be?

You can try this interactive on line map. It worked for me last year, you can get Lat/Long info of it to transfer to Mapsource. I have Topo Canada and most of the sites on on there, but it only shows a tent with no name, saying "campground".

At the moment though I can't get the map to work. Probably my computer as it is getting sllloooooowwwww.

You can PM me if you want as I have a gpx file with some of them that were along my planned route Calgary to Vancouver, and some that were not as plans change enroute right?

After being patient, a lead came up thanks to the BC DualSport website.

Here it is for anyone who is interested.

I just got a new GPS, and thank you for this! I added this file to my GPX folder on my Nav IV unit. When I powered the unit back up, it asked me if I want to import the new files. I said yes, and the only option I had was to add to my "favorites" folder on the unit. I then selected add all, and I got a message saying something like "can only add 999 waypoints, please delete 174 and try again"

So I'm just wondering, is there a way to create a camping folder to use instead of the favorites?

Do you only load the campsites you will use on your trip?

If I load all the campsites, will I run out of POI room?

Thanks

I am not familiar with your Nav IV unit - I have an Oregon and Montna.
Maybe post the ? in the main GPS section and someone there may know more about the limitations of the NavIV.
