“not recommended, tenting area extremily noisy”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

We do not recommend this campsite; it is by far the noisiest place we stayed in. There is a busy highway and rail tracks just behind the tenting site (a couple of meters away) and every time a train passes, the earth literally shakes! The owner did inform us about the vicinity of freight trains tracks, however we would never imagine the level of noise.
There is a swimming pool, a game room and a fitness room at your disposal in Burnaby Cariboo RV Park, but it looks like it needed some serious refurbishment.

Earlier reviews indicate that this RV Park is (too) expensive. I don't think so. You pay for a lot of facilites and if you don't take the advantage to make use of it, it is all up too you. Also the RVPark is fully equipped. The lots are small, but no complains. As a stop over or as a final stop before returning your RV to the rental company this is an excellent choice.
Everything was okay and we would take it again.
Make reservations in advance!!! The place a popular.
People also complain about the train, but wasn't too bad. Okay, first train came quite early (around 5 in the morning), but we were long awake before the next one :-)
Close (10 min) to the metro downtown Vancouver.

We stayed 1 night at the end of our motor home tour, a very well maintained RV park with privacy hedges between each site, excellent facilities washrooms, laundry & swimming pool with a well stocked shop. The staff were very friendly & offered a lot of suggestions on things to see & do, close to Burnaby Lake Regional Park a great place for a walk, as well as explaining the best way to get into Vancouver. Some drawbacks it was a hard to reverse park the large RV that we were driving into the site as the roads around the park were a bit narrow, noise from the passing trains & a little bit expensive but that 's to be expected being so close to Vancouver. Would we stay at this RV park again yes.

Room Tip: Try to get a site that's easy to reverse park if you have a large RV

We stayed at the park for one week in mid-October. It's expensive but they did offer a discount for a one week stay. The park is very well maintained with thoroughly clean washrooms/showers, and pool area. The park is cramped, expected given its urban location (real estate values dictate this), but there are extensive cedar hedges that afford some privacy. Location is excellent as there is bus service at the park entrance leading directly to the Skytrain and downtown. The Skytrain is also within walking distance (about 15-20 minutes). There is also shopping nearby.

Staff were friendly and helpful. The park also provided some other nice amenities including a truck and RV wash station. This is unusual and welcome as it's difficult to find a place where you can clean your RV. The laundry room even had two ironing boards - nice touch.

The main drawback is the busy rail line that borders the rear of the park. I didn't hear any trains during the night but they started around 6:00 AM and it was loud.

Being closest to the drop off point for our RV, we got information about the RV Park. Of course, one should be aware being in the Vancouver district, in between a lot of traffic and lots of houses.
Burnaby Cariboo RV Park is one of the most comfortably equipped encountered on this year's stay: welcoming staff, an extensive shop, luxury & leveled RV sites with full hook up, swimming pool, fitness room, jacuzzi, RV-wash, complimentary WiFi... Accomodations are kept very clean, although being on a campground with many sites, so also many visitors.
Some drawbacks however: expensive, extremely noisy because of the continuously passing trains, very busy as it is clearly an RV park where visitors start or end their BC-tour.
So if you know what your are up to, this camp site is a very good choice. But no: I would not like to stay for several days, certainly not when having stayed several weeks in nature.

Very well kept. Clean bathrooms,showers and good laundry facilities. The only downside is the noise from the trains, but you cannot have everything in life!. Very friendly at the front desk, they were very kind with answers to many questions, even recommending a good pub not far from them. (The Mountain Shadow pub, good food,beer and lovely staff). Not too far away from the Skytrain station, Vancouver was only a half hour ride away. You can buy day tickets from the front desk. Yes it is a bit expensive, but you are in the suburbs of a major city, and hotels don't come cheap anymore either. Would stay there again no problem.

The title says it all. This is the one of the most expensive RV parks I've stayed in; it cost more than the one nearest to San Francisco in Marin County, for example.
The management is extremely friendly, the place is kept very clean, and this includes the showers, bathrooms and swimming pool. A nice hot tub although heavily chlorinated. Trains come by in the night nearby, and there is fairly loud traffic nearby. However a nice park to walk and bike is right outside the entrance gate. Overall we would return here.
