Has pretty much everything you need and is hiking distance to Stanley (moderate bike ride). The only little issue was a lot of road noise, but we were so wiped out from being at Stanley Park all day it’s didn’t bother us much! Lots ago near by stores for fresh food and shopping, walking distance.

The sites are tight but the location is just right. Getting here is a bit difficult, a turn or two is a challenge, go slow. WiFi works in two places. The pool is good and the wash rooms are fine, nothing fancy but adequate. I had major trouble backing into site 9 but with help I made it.

We picked this RV park because of it's proximity to Downtown Vancouver (about 2.5 miles). And that's definitely what you're getting here—location. The price listed (in USD) is before the Good Sam discount, which brings the price down to about $45 USD.

You are walking distance to Whole Foods, Home Depot and about a million other stores inside of the mall. You can easily bike to Stanley Park (if you can stand to go up a pretty intense climb up the bridge), and to downtown, West End, Gastown and other hot-spots. Parking downtown can be a bit difficult in a truck, so it's nice to have that option.

The facilities aren't anything to really rave about. It's like most RV parks—a glorified parking lot. The sites are paved and level, but some are more narrow/shallow than others. You're close to you neighbors, but honestly, you probably won't be spending a lot of time here with all of the awesome things to do in Vancouver!

There is laundry, a pool, a jacuzzi, lounge, super crappy wi-fi (but cell signal here is great on T-Mobile (aka Bell). It's a very clean and well-maintained park, albeit VERY large.

We've stayed in this park as full timers over the past year and half (taking a few months over that period for traveling). Some things required us being downtown Vancouver, and this is the only real viable location for that. Quick access to good groceries, etc. Easy access to Downtown via buses that are a 10min walk away. (Driving to downtown can take anywhere from 10 to 45min depending on traffic).

AT&T and TMobile generally map to Rogers and Telus here, excellent unboosted signal, good speed (I've got faster rates in more remote locations), but still quite good (25mbps range dn).

Park itself is a bit claustrophobic. I sometimes worry the neighbors awning is going to dent the roof of my Airstream.

Much of the electrical here is ages old still and in need of an upgrade. While there hasn't been a problem since I've been here, I know there has been in the past. I use a camco 30amp protector just to be sure.

It's costly here, no monthly rates May-Oct. But given the current exchange rates USD->CAD it's actually not much more than some out of the way places we've stayed. Our current rate is $50USD after GoodSams/AAA discount.

What this campground has going for it is all things great and wonderful about Vancouver. There is s much to see and do in the area. Traffic though in the city is ALWAYS very heavy. We enjoyed our time here exploring Yaletown, Gastown, Granville Island and biking across the Lions Gate bridge to bike through Stanley Park. It’s also a foodies place with too many to list international options.
The campground is definitely the tightest we have ever been to. You could literally reach out and touch the one next to you. No place to sit outside and enjoy your site. There is a picnic table but you have to find a place for it to fit if you are a big rig. All of the sites here are the same so it’s not a matter of having a bad site. Nice laundry facility on site. There was also a pool but we did not visit and seemed to be always busy.
All of that being said we would come back again because Vancouver is so much fun to adventure in.
ATT coverage is Rogers and fair at best. WiFi at the site wasn’t really usable, also 30 amp power was good and nice water pressure. The final last mile to the park is extremely difficult with a couple very tight turns especially if you are a big rig towing.

I stayed here for two nights. It’s great cuz it’s only 20 mins to the city center. $50 for a tent site which only includes a parking space and a picnic table. This place really packs in the people, it should really only put about half it normally does cuz everyone feels on top of each other. Good showers has a hot tub and laundry facilities, comes with free ice and WiFi in the lounge area

Located within many local attractions, including a bike ride from Stanley Park and Downtown Vancouver. Price is ok for location, my issue are the amenities. They had washroom and showers, but a bit run down. Biggest complaint was the wifi or lack of that. They mentioned they had wifi but it turn out that it was not free (very expensive in fact) and when we tried to use it for it was extremely hard to sign up and speed was slower then my mobile connection. If they update some of their facility and get a better internet provider I might reconsider coming back, otherwise it is not worth the hassle.

The staff acted like we were bothering them when we checked in and that should have been a sign to leave. We went to our site, 104, and it was absolutely filthy. Trash all over including dirty rubber gloves on the ground. The trailers on both sides were permanent residents and nothing against that but the one on our patio side was falling apart and had a stench. Not the nice relaxing atmosphere we hoped for. We went back to the office to see if we could move but they had no other sites available. We told her about the trash and especially the nasty rubber gloves. She sent maintenance over to “clean” and they literally only picked up the rubber gloves. They left the other trash on the site. Unbelievable! The bathrooms are ok but need to be cleaned. We would never stay here again and if we could have found another campground, we would have moved.

We stayed here over a holiday weekend in our 45ft class A. This park was built many years ago before 4 slides was a thing and therefore it's pretty cramped. We chose site 88 so we could get satellite TV, but now that we've been there, will only chose end sites like 89 in the future. Our curb slides were over our neighbors picnic table, but so were there's so they didn't care. The rig barely fit on the concrete pad, again end site would fix these issues. The Starlink worked flawless on the ground in front of our site too.
The area is awesome and we walked and rode our bikes everywhere, except a trip to Stanley Park and a day trip to Squamish. The traffic around this area sticks! The traffic to get on the Lionsgate bridge can take hours to die down so get out and back early before 2 or 3. The traffic getting onto the North Shore can also be congested. Also, getting into the park requires narrow roads and huge speed bumps, like 1ft tall. We got over fine at an angle but it was close. Then the right hand turn is so tight to get onto Spirit/Welch that I had to go over the curb because there was a car in the turn lane - the driver looked pretty scared that I would hit her too. Fear not though, I have an easier way: From Capilano road going south, take a left/east on Marine Drive then a right/south on Pemberton then right/west on Welch. These roads are wider and plenty of room for turns.
