There is a Provincial Park Campsite with 94 camping spots at Nairn Falls. When we checked the reservation site on the day before we were going (July 18th) it told us that booking had to be done at least two days ahead, and everything was already booked and unavailable.

However, when we got there about two in the afternoon, some of those bookings had been cancelled and there were last-minute spots available.
