“Keep on Truckin”
Reviewed February 28, 2010

The park is well maintained but has very small sites. The trains rumble through day a night and shake the ground. Better have ear plugs. They have many full timers, some have been there for 5 years or more. The highway is on one side and the main road up to the university is on the other side. If the train doesn't get you the fire trucks and ambulances passing by constantly will. The rates are almost $50/day plus cable, the internet is lousy. Your better off staying further out . It is a hell of a lot cheaper and quieter.

Thank you for taking the time to review our park. I realize that your stay was already a long time ago, during the 2010 Winter Olympics. We must apologise for our WiFi service during that time frame. The volume of web traffic could not be handled by our system at that time. You may be pleased to know that we have replaced our WiFi system and currently run through Tengo Internet. This system seems to be performing excellently for our guests. Thank you again for taking the time to review our park, we always welcome constructive suggestions.

After a what seemed like days and day touring the hi-ways and bi-ways, we decided to spend a few nights at Burnaby RV park.

Driving into the park you will have the impression of a neat, tidy and orderly environment. It was busy with several groups of people waiting to check, the 2 staff members were being stretched in order to handle the customer flow. I took about 30mins to check in.

I wondered why the place seemed so cold, no-one seemed very friendly. During our stay , no-one was approachable, let alone said hello. I was told later by a park employee, "We cater to German and Dutch tourists, advertising exclusively to these markets, its little wonder no one said hello. They don't speak English."

So now we know that no one speaks English, I can live with that. What I had a very hard time with is the TRAINS, and lots of them. The park is bordered by 2 major rail lines, the trains run on the hour non stop. These track are about 20 feet away from the park bordering lines. The trains feel like they are coming directly through the RV, shake, rattle, bang , thump. The first night the entire family had no sleep.
As the sun rose in the morning, I was sitting outside and realized that it was not just trains, there were 2 main roads that circle the park as well.
Diesel trucks with engine brakes start round 5 AM, it slows down around 10PM.

If you want to get some enjoyment from your trip, I suggest you by-pass this place.
Several other parks in the area which we stayed at had none of these problems. South Surrey and White Rock have parks that are quiet, peaceful. North Vancouver has one right at the bridge to the city center.

People at the office were very nice but I would not recommend camping here. It was close to 35 dollars to camp. The sites were right on top of one another, the highway was right next to us and then so was the railroad tracks and a train came by numerous times at night. We were supposed to camp for 3 nights and only stayed for 2.
