10 Parks near West Vancouver, British Columbia
Jul 2016 - $63.00
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

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. - daviputnam
Jul 2016 - $66.00
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. - phann

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. - DebGA

We stayed at this campground a couple of years ago and found it acceptable and the management to be friendly. We stayed there a couple of weeks ago and left after one night as there is new management that is very rude and the campground seemed to be a lot more dumpy then before. When we arrived in the afternoon we couldn't find anyone to check us in so we called their number and the lady that answered made it seem like we were bothering her while she was doing something. We waited almost 30 minutes at their front entrance for a guy to check us in. - AllegroBusGuy

We chose this campground because of its close proximity to Vancouver and the price seemed reasonable as per RVpark reviews website. This park is not at all suitable for a short visit as it is very difficult to access. It is situated high up on the surrounding mountains above Port Moody and is accessed through residential areas. This park would be more suitable as a destination park as it has a pretty lake within walking distance. Unfortunately the management was very rude and never available. The only way to access them was by calling on a cell phone and then they made you feel as if you were being intrusive, even if you wanted to pay for another night. The cost per night was $45 inclusive of tax and $5 surcharge for 50 amp. There was an additional $1 charge for using the showers. We ended up cutting short our visit to Vancouver because of the overall bad experiance and we will certainly never come back again. - bluetrain

This is one of the few parks that are really working on upgrading the facilities. New office and recreation hall being finished and loads of landscaping going in. This used to be a pretty rundown park but the owners and management are really trying. Close to a Provincial day use park so weekend traffic can be a challenge but a beautiful ( only electric motors) lake is within walking distance. Sites are back in but easliy accessible. Good width for slides and awnings. Electric power is mainly 30 amp but there are some 50 amp sites.The 30 amps seems a bit weak at times. Lots of shade and privacy. Animals are not always on leash which could be a problem when the park gets busy in the summer. We will stay most of this summer. - Recently Retired05

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

Super friendly staff. Clean and looks very well run. We'll be back. - Driveby

Close proximity to Vancouver is it's ONLY positive attribute. We had 7 RV's connected to a single hose bib, sites are nowhere near level and my 30A breaker kept tripping. Wifi is only available if you sit outside the office with the smoking staff. And whatever you do, don't ask tourist related questions....you'll be told to Google it. - PeterT

Nice sites with good tree coverage, nice clean bathrooms with free showers. We really loved the heated pool. We have been camping here every summer and have had all good experiences. We only had one problem with noisy neighbours, but the manager refunded us for the night and we have had no other problems. It is generally quiet, and the sites are nice and shaded. The pool is the best part. You don't hear much noise from the highway. Great with kids, playground, pool and close to the city in case you need anything from the store, etc. Nice open grounds to play in grassy areas. Staff very friendly and helpful. - familycamper4

We were going to stay but left when checking in. Advertised as 'pet friendly' with free Wi-Fi. NOT pet friendly, NO Wi-Fi and staff less than helpful! Left and went to another nearby campground and very happy for our overnight stay. Think it's time Dogwood update their website to tell the truth! - Ali G

This is an older mobile home park with some permanent RVs they have also have short term/overnight spots with full hookups. It is located in a city area with a park close by, bus to downtown and sight seeing stops at the front gate. There is no pool or playground or activity center but if you want a secure place to stay while visiting the Vancouver area this will work. There were a dozen rental RVs that were either starting or finishing their trips as it is close to one of the rental outlets. This is not a fancy place but it is in a good location. We were out most of the time and just came back to the park for evenings. - dakegro

Other than it's location, there is very little to recommend this RV park. The sites are extremely close together and not very level. Many of the residents appear to be seasonal or full-timers with an abundance of junk in the campground: abandoned trailers, boards, rusted equipment, outbuildings in disrepair, and overflowing trash in the dumpsters. The office area was similar to the campground. I didn't notice any maintenance workers working on the campsites, shrubs, potholes, and low lying tree limbs extending over one of the roads (scraped us on the way out). On the plus side, the internet was very good. - JCJ1

Most sites are not level, but are private (evergreens between each site). Since all pull throughs are on a 90 degree angle to the road, larger units have a tough time getting in. The store has little in it. Interior roads are paved and good. - ta96silver

We liked the open area for tenting, but it was far from the washrooms and the pool was very cold. Spacious, grass lot. - familycamper4
Aug 2015 - $35.00
This was the only RV park in the area so I had stopped for the night despite the bad reviews that I had read. There are many permanent residents here with lots of old cars and various other items stored outside their trailers. The trailer behind us had his grey water valve permanently open. There is a mega mall being built next to this park, the construction for this only added to the noise from the highway. My guess is that this place will be closed soon. - KHAdams

Stayed here because of location to the ferry terminal. NOT AGAIN!!! Sites were too close together. Barely enough room between RV's to sit outside. Washrooms filthy, mold on shower curtains and in shower stall. Not as it shows on the web site. - jla_vernon

This park is obviously in bad shape. More monthlies here that look like only a few of them care to clean up their sites. The "pull through" sites were right on top of each other and way too narrow. We had to bring in our awning just to get another RV in next to us. Will not stay here again. - Number4son

Staying here for 10 days. Site is generous in size. Park is well groomed. 70 percent of spots are full timers. Do have an issue with being charged $5 a day for my dog, yet there are no dog facilities. The full timer across the road has two yappy dogs, I assume they are not being charged $5 a day for each dog.
Water pressure does fluctuate (20 psi - 60 psi) , good thing for my regulator.
Park has a nice pool and play ground for the kids.
Would stay here again. - rwberg

Bearing in mind, that the price in CDN funds with tax is $39.85 I found it hard to figure out why they charged for the showers! Spaces are treed and it's quiet. Wifi is ok. Great for an overnighter for heading south. - Tonyl
Dec 2015 - $20.00
The park is very well kept with large lots and easy to navigate roads. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The wifi was a little bit iffy at times, but it did work. The facilities were well kept and always clean.
The location is excellent; close to the border, shopping, and facilities. We will stay here again when we are in the area. - Home2us
