There are times when what you want is proximity to other resources, and this is where Capilano River RV Park really shines. It's a short walk to the shopping mall, restaurants, and bus connectivity, via a backroad crossing over the picturesque river. For a small fee you can buy an all day bus/transit pass, and easily go wherever you want in greater Vancouver. At the end of the day it's an easy walk back to your site, even if you stopped in a local pub for a drink along the way. Plus, after dark, there is on-site security staff making regular patrols.

The sites are a bit tight, and close together. Don't expect to fully extend your awning in some of them. Because of the proximity, neighbor noise and clutter can be an issue. No outside fires are allowed. Dog facilities were adequate, plus there is easy access to an extended network of walking/running/biking trails.

This is the place to go if you want to vacation in the city of Vancouver -- maybe go shopping, see a show, etc. -- but want to travel and stay in your RV. We will definitely be coming here again.

Location to Vancouver was great! Would stay here again if only for this reason. Park was clean and roads easily travelled. Sites were EXTREMELY close together... Was not able to put out awning because it would hit the rig next to us... Actually felt bad extending our pop outs because it went into the neighboring site. However, we were there to visit the area, not camp, so it was overall a nice stay. Do not turn left out if the park, neighborhood is a bit sketchy. Noted security was working and kicked a guy out who wasn't registered.. That made us feel better.
