“Clean, good location but expensive and cramped”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

We've stayed here before so knew what to expect. The kids love the pool although the rule that you have to be 15 years old to use the hot tub is silly... It isn't like that anywhere else and the staff enforce it strictly. The location is about as close to Vancouver as you can expect in a big city, the place is super clean and well taken care of, the staff is knowledgable and friendly. The sites are ridiculously small but we don't spend much time in our site anyway... Seriously though you will hit trees and hedges trying to back in around here! It is also very expensive, most expensive campground we've ever stayed at but again you are in a big city.

We stayed here because it was the nearest to the place where we had to return our RV. It was more expensive than any of the other sites we visited in British Columbia, but the facilities and service offered were tremendous. Each site is fully serviced with water, electricity and sewage. There is a van wash facility which we needed after 2 weeks on the road. There is a swimming pool and small fitness centre, a shop and most important for us as we wanted to print out our boarding passes, free use of the internet and printing.
But the friendly and helpful service is what makes this site special. We were even given clear directions to get us across town for the 40 minute drive to return the RV.
It was well worth the money.

Came here at the end of our Canada trip because of a friends recommendation. The place turned out to be a big winner. It is close to pretty much everyting, it is spotless, it has a (pretty big) pool and the staff is as nice as they come. It takes minutes to walk to the little shuttle train that takes you directly to vancouver downtown, so thats defenately a huge plus. The pool is great, its warm, super clean and great to relax after a day in the city. The staff is really helpfull aswell. They helped us by making a map for driving to the RV rental place. Due to the roadworks we werent sure how to drive, and we didnt want to be late to return our RV. Would defenately recommend the place when you rent an RV and come to Vancouver!!

Yes, sites are a little cramped. But the staff, especially Harriet, more than made up for any inconveniences including a strange wireless set-up (2 hours free or day or 30 minute blocks up to 2 hours). Pool and hot tub spotless, fitness room a little sparse. Easy access to SkyTrain (buy an all day pass in the office and take a bus to Lougheed station--catch the bus right outside the park.

Yes, there is traffic and rail noise. Yes the sites are very tight. But this is an urban camp ground and is perfect for exploring Vancouver.

Our site was one with parking beside the unit. It was a tight squeeze to get into; but we managed it and were very comfortable. The staff were polite and helpful, the entire facility clean and the amenities excellent.

You are an 8 minute walk from the skytrain and we used this to explore Vancouver. 9 dollars gets you a day pass to go everywhere. We went to metrotown, Richmond, downtown, and north Vancouver (via sea bus).

I recommend this rv park for those who visit Vancouver.

Room Tip: Ask for a site with parking beside the unit.

This is a really good park to stay in and explore Vancouver.
Yes it is a bit noisy but what would one expect when in the heart of a big city.
The park is cleaner than clean,amenities including pool and showers are excellent,staff is friendly and helpful.
I just can't see any justification for saying anything other than good things about this park and highly recommend it.

Yes, we know that camping in a big urban area can't be as silent as in a national park. But do you really have to stuff campers with only a tent into the noisiest spot of the camping "park" as if they were unwanted?!
We paid 45 dollars for a tiny, crowded and extremely noisy general tenting area without any designated places. Furthermore the staff is unfriendly and arrogant. The camper's area is located right next to highways with loud construction works, train tracks with extremely loud trains honking....couldn't get any noisier in any way. Don't expect to get any sleep!!! You get headaches from the constant noise there. Don't go there! Better go to Hazelmere RV Park in Surrey in the South. That's way better!
Without any sleep or rest we weren't able to enjoy the day in Vancouver at all....
