You'll get great practice backing into tight sites. Had to unhook and park in lot 100 yds away - satisfactory but not convenient. Large hedges partially separate sites, but at rear, you are right in other campers 'personal space'. Overall, cg is very pleasant and clean.

Cable tv not avail at this site. Claimed we didnt order it but offered another site (for extra ctv fee) after we had already set up. No thanks!

Trains passed night and day. Our site was further away but others are near tracks. Run your AC, fan or white noise to sleep better.

Busy cg, lots of families. Store/office offers basic food, treats and supplies.

Internet access via TengoInternet is free with options that limit you to certain periods per 24 hrs, otherwise pay for expanded availability. Signal was weak and very sporadic at our site.

Never-the-less, compared to some of the other campgrounds I've visited in the Vancouver metro area, this is one of the nicest. We would stay again. We camped at Burnaby Cariboo RV Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Paros Taverna restaurant has excellent Greek food. A 10 min drive or 30 min walk away. Walmart is right next door.

Easy access to Burnaby Regional Park. Sky Train is 15 walk away for easier access to Vancouver.

Price paid was in CAD and included an up-charge for rig over 32'.

Sites are tight, tight, tight and access roads are narrow, I had a privacy hedge on 1 side and an access walkway on the other. Services (power, water, sewer) are at back end of sites; I needed 2 water hoses and 2 sewer lengths to reach them.

Parking for tow vehicles was 100 yds away, inconvenient.

Campground is near both a railroad track as well as Sky-train so you'll hear them all the time.

Large city park within 400 meters - good pet walk area as well.

Lots of amenities (pool, hot-tub, exercise room, lounge, etc) but park is family friendly so you'll have to deal with lots of youngsters in pool and spa.

Vancouver Island tours pickup at front (6:30AM), which was convenient. They offer pet walking for $10 CAD while on tour.

Location is convenient to malls and Sky-train station. We camped at Burnaby Cariboo RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Expensive but we are close to Vancouver! Tight sites but the campground itself is meticulously maintained. The facilities are excellent plus a well stocked store for the things you need. Super helpful staff! We camped at Burnaby Cariboo RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Very clean park. Great city access, 20 minute drive to Vancouver. Staff is very friendly and knowledgable about locations, routes, etc. and helped arrange tours. They are one of the few RV parks where a day tour to Victoria/Butchart Gardens picks up at the park office, most only pick up at downtown Vancouver hotels. Spaces -- all are back-in -- are landscaped with high hedges between each site for privacy. Sites are concrete and relatively flat. Ours had a concrete pad wide enough to house 40-ft motorhome with 2 slides and tow vehicle so nothing was hanging out in the streets. RVs may be rinsed off at site, and they have a pay-to-wash station on park premises.

Yes, typical RV park, poor Tengo WiFi, low water pressure, 30 amp, train track at back; however, we had a delightful stay here and would recommend and come back. We camped at Burnaby Cariboo RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Take a day trip to Victoria/Butchart Gardens-gorgeous! Spend a few hours in Granville Island for farmer's market and to buy handmade and see artisans at work. Drive in to Vancouver to eat at Scoozi's - fantastic breakfast with deep dish casseroles or my favorite, smoked salmon Eggs Benedict. Tons to see and do in and around Vancouver.

This park was built in the 80's when rvs were not so large, not having slides. As such, the sites are on the smaller side and are rather narrow. The redeeming fact is that there are large cedar hedges between the sites, thus giving privacy to your site. Despite the age of the rv park, the sites are well maintained and the entire park is very clean park. Everything is in good working order. All sites are paved and level.
For amenities, there is an indoor pool, whirlpool, games room, small exercise room, and an on-site store that is well stocked. There is a large laundry room. The park only has 30 amp service.
This rv park is the closet one to downtown Vancouver. Public transit is easy to access. There is a Costco within walking distance and lots of shopping nearby. The park borders the Burnaby Lake Regional Park system which offers great walking trails and biking pathways.
There is no dedicated dog area, but this is not need given the proximity to the trail system that borders the rv park.
Note: the rate paid was the "winter rate". We camped at Burnaby Cariboo RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Further to what others have previously stated...this is really the only show in town for visiting Vancouver and suburbs. Having said that, the sites are tight, the access roads narrow, the trains are NOISY and to top it all off, the wifi sucks big-time.

For $65 Cdn a night, you would expect wifi that is available park-wide and stays connected. Forget the 30 mins every 2 hrs or 2 hrs every 8 hrs, this park's wifi is a joke!

I asked at the office where the strongest signal was - "on the sundeck" was the response "or "you could use the computer in the store." "Thanks", I said. I sat down to a 14" screen with USB stick in hand. Uh oh, no USB ports, but wait, there is a 3.5" floppy drive!! 217 sites @ $65 a night and they can't even provide a decent computer!!

We were here for a week. Next time, we will camp further out. This park is just too cramped and noisy and expensive. We camped at Burnaby Cariboo RV Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Although there are virtually no other choices near Vancouver, this park has some very bad features. As many said, the sites are tight and they are all right angles to the street so very tough to get into with a large motorhome or fiver. The sites are narrow enough and they plant and let grow wide rows of cedar/ficus type hedges. They could trim them narrower and not let them grow so far to the front of the space. Privacy is nice, but it is so tight you scrape them when parking and leaving and there is no room to sit outside your coach. The power is 30 amp, but not really. We tripped the breaker many times at around 20 amps. So had to be very careful what we had on together. I tried a different receptacle and same problem. Neighbors said same. We finally just ran our generator to use the micro wave to fix dinner. The Wi-Fi is a joke. Barely can log on and when you do, they say you get 4 hours free. That is 1/2 hour every 2 hours or 2 hours every 8 hours. If you want it continual, you pay $5 more. They charge $3 per day for cable. No room for a tow vehicle or towed. Have to park it in a lot nearby. The office staff was efficient, helpful and friendly. I understand the high price, due to location, but the amenities are poor and it is not worth it. We camped at Burnaby Cariboo RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is in a good location for Vancouver, the sites are neat & tidy with nice hedges between sites for privacy but they are very tight & not suitable for a big rig. We have a 29 trailer & only just made it in on our own. The owners & staff are really helpful & will assist with their tractor if needed though. The playground & pool was great. WiFi was OK depending on the time of day. This is better for the weekly stays, not suitable for 1 night with the effort needed to get into each site. We would stay again though.

This is DEFINITELY not a big rig park. If you are over 38 feet with slides then I suggest you look elsewhere. We have never experienced a park this tight in 9 years on the road. We made a reservation 4 months ago and the site is so tight that we can barely move around outside and struggled to back into the site. Our Jeep is parked in a remote lot. On top of that, we only have 30 amps and you are given 2 hours of Wi-Fi per day. Most of the streets in this park cannot be maneuvered by a 45 footer. It is a very clean, quiet park but not meant for our type of rig. We camped at Burnaby Cariboo RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a nice park with a couple of footnote comments: It is probably one of the tightest parks I've ever been in as far as getting parked. To their credit, they sent a fellow to the site to help us get in...it's tight! One of the coaches in our group skinned his coach getting to his site. Again to their credit, even though the sites are small, they use shrubbery and landscaping to enhance privacy, once you're parked. My biggest complaint would be the Wi-Fi which is really cheesy. Clean and convenient to the city. We would certainly stay again. We camped at Burnaby Cariboo RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Camped in a 40' Motorhome with 3 slides. Very tight sites, Cedar shrubs line the sites and were against one side of rig. Park is located between of Canada Hwy 1 and a busy railroad. Trains are very loud and will shake your rig. Park is well maintained and desk personnel very helpful. Easy access to Vancouver and surrounding area. Nice pool and hot tub.

I agree that the sites are tight both in width and length and all sites are back-in. I needed help to get into mine. However, once you're in, they're very private and include a brick patio and nice table. Cable is available and internet, which is free for two hours a day. Very close to public transportation, too. Would definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped at Burnaby Cariboo RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is really tight. The sites are barely long enough and the roads are very narrow. This makes it extremely difficult to get into your site. The landscaping is great. The pool and hot tub are wonderful. Staff is very friendly and helpful. We have a 34' class A and had to try several sites to find one we could squeeze into. Congrats to my husband for championship backing job. Internet is mediocre (Tengo for 2 hours/day, with download restrictions.) However, Vancouver is great and the park is in a really good location.

There is only one word to describe this campground: Compressed. It is a beautiful campground with manicured bushes between each site. Unfortunately, the sites are so narrow that everyone has to put their towed car or truck associated with their fifth wheels in a parking lot. Having said that, it is a great campground with everything including jacuzzi and indoor heated pool. There is lots to do in Vancouver, and it would be difficult to find a better location for camping nearby. By the way, the trains make a terrible racket when they come through. Wear earplugs at night.

A little bit more expensive than other places we've stayed, but very convenient for Vancouver touring. On the negative points: the sites are (very/too) tight, and sometime your outside table is located just near the sewer of your neighbor RV. On the positive points: friendly staff, very very good amenities (a large indoor pool and hot water pool, with a sun deck above). Good laundry but very crowded/used.
