“Centrally located”
Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

We were pleasantly surprised by this park, since it is close to downtown Vancouver and the photos were not very flattering. We enjoyed the the central location as it was within walking distance of the river, a hiking/biking trail, grocery store, restaurants, and a shopping mall. There was very little traffic noise, despite it's proximity to the Lion's Gate Bridge and major highways. The spaces were tight-- all must but backed into, but the landscaping was placed in a way that some privacy was provided. The staff was friendly and helpful and the entire place was clean. There is a small dog area, and it was well maintained. The pool and hot tub were nice amenities, but the wifi is spotty. The central location is hard to beat.

Stayed June 2013, traveled as a couple

Very well kept, clean park, with wonderful restrooms and showers, pool hot tub and laundry. The sites are narrow but to be expected in the centre of a major city. They have level concrete pads and rear privacy hedges. Walking distance to a major shopping mall with all services. A reasonable walk to the ocean as well. The park was 2/3 full at the end of May so reservations are likely necessary in summer. Under new management for the past couple of years and they have made many improvements. Staff was friendly and helpful. Not cheap but worth the money. Offers Good Sam discount. Stayed in a class c motor home but park had several class a and fifth wheels. All sites seem to be back ins.

I was a bit sceptical about this site due to its proximity to Lions Gate Bridge, but there was almost no traffic noise to be heard at all. The park is clean and well maintained, with a pool, childrens playground, and a rather small dog park (just a little doggie toilet actually). The washrooms are clean, and I never had to wait for a shower stall.

The sites are all back in, which I didn't care for as I hadn't driven a large vehicle for some 25 years before this trip, but I managed it without any damage... The site prices I found a bit on the high side, but as there are not that many RV sites in greater Vancouver you just have to bite the bullet.
