6 Parks near Gibsons, British Columbia

We received a warm welcome, even though we arrived an hour early. The advantage of this RV campground is that it is close to Stanley Park and central Vancouver, just over the Lions Gate Bridge. Other than that, the campgound is overall Ok, but not great.
The grounds and many sites seem old but the office, laundry and rec. room are quite nice. The pool looked nice too and people were using it. There are a smattering of long term sites, some of which need some TLC but we had no issues with them.
We did not notice the traffic noise at our site. There are numerous tent sites on the eastern loop. The RV sites are narrow and my truck had to go into the grass a bit to back the trailer in. Although we unhooked, we did not have to do so. There was plenty of length for my tt and truck.
If you have to be close to Vancouver on the north side, this cg is well situated. We didnt like navigating the awful traffic to get across the bridge to VC, but thats about the only reason we would not choose come back. - phann

Packed in like sardines. We were next to a HUGE 5th wheel that left us with about 2 feet between their slide out and our trailer. We couldn't even put our awning out. The sites are so close together. Wifi is terrible. Don't even waste your time with it. The kids liked the pool. The laundry is a racket at $2.50 for wash, $2.50 for dry. We couldn't wait to get out of here. - Ahleeb

First of all, DO NOT drive your RV through Vancouver to get to this park. Take the Truck Customs border crossing if coming from the U.S. and then 176th St to the Trans Canada Highway West. Use Capilano St. exit and follow the signs. Although we came in this way, we also came in a different way when we got close to the park and making a hard left into the park with the 40 ft RV and tow is almost impossible...except somehow my husband managed it without damaging the tow. The park is tight between sites but we had no problem putting out our slides and still having some room. The park is easy to navigate with a big rig. The road was wide and paved so backing in was easy and sites were level/concrete. There was enough room for the RV and tow at our site. They have a nice off leash dog park, which we appreciated. The pool looked very nice but we did not use it. "Grass" between sites was a little long but no big deal. A mall is right down the street for convenience and getting into Vancouver is simple over the Lions Gate Bridge...just a few minutes. But traffic is heavy in this area, so be prepared when getting in and out of the park. The park does have some noise because it is close to the on ramp of the Lions Gate Bridge, but it was quieter over night. Otherwise the park is quiet with the people staying here. I don't usually use the park's wifi but since I didn't want to pay for data from the U.S. I did. The wifi on my phone worked well but I rarely got my laptop to connect. Price is higher but that's Canada and its location to the city. We would stay here again. - Danni

Stayed here off season, so no staff support. Right by landfill, so some noise and some smell with the wind blowing the "wrong" way. Lots of coyotes and trees and some full timers. Two beach access points across the street, one a trail. Walking distance to town - less than 2 miles one way. Would be a nice place for kids or a family gathering. - Vista Queen

Pretty average, comfortable place, no activities. Staff was friendly and do their best. Dated washrooms but clean. Quiet campground. Great for those who want to sit back and read and relax. - Smore Fishin

Good site. There is lots of room between sites and lots of trees for privacy. There is a small beach across the street but you are better off heading to Porpoise Bay Provincial Park if you want a good beach to hang out on. - Henry Wang

Access to park entrance difficult if driving in from the north as highway is busy and turning left into park may take awhile. Park road gravel. Most sites dirt with grass. Our site was gravel and level. Only 1 full hookup site with stream view; the rest were tent sites. The swimming pool was closed for the season. Cable TV had good channel selection and clear picture. Okay for an overnight stay, but I wouldn't want to stay much longer. - Onemoretrail

Office is located in the first unit on the left as you pull in. The woman was very friendly, but forgot to give us the cable box for the cable TV, and seemed confused about the new internet sign on procedures. On the whole the park was well kept, in spite of a lot of full time residents, except for a burnt out car which was almost blocking one part of the road. There is no real designated dog area, but there is a wooded area next to the park, a children's playground, pay laundry and only 2 pay showers for the entire park. All the sites are very large but gravel, and were a little muddy since a layer of snow had just melted. We found the night to be extremely quiet. We would stay here again. - Snoet

This is a park with no hookups, so our rating does not consider any. The rate is based on off season senior's rate.There are only group campfires available in the early evenings. The shower/washrooms have electricity for things like razors, hair driers etc. Roadways and pads are gravel, big and relatively level. There are walking trails that take you out to the salt water beaches. Main benefits of this park are the privacy of the huge sites. We have a dog with us, and we do wish that more attention would be paid to other dog owners who allow their pets to go off leash. - Snoet
