“Full time location”

Reviewed May 27, 2017

Overall Rating

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.

“Great proximity to Vancouver”

Reviewed Sep 19, 2016

Overall Rating

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.
