Discover Vancouver

Vancouver is perhaps one of the most beautiful seaport cities in the world. The city, framed by towering mountain peaks and coastal waterways, is ideal for finding a mix of cultural activities and outdoor recreation.

When planning your road trip, you have so many destinations within your reach. Do you prefer an urban staycation, or do you hope to pick up your RV rental in Vancouver and take the Sea to Sky Highway to Whistler? If you want to visit a national park and camp in the Canadian Rockies, you can drive to Kootenay National Park in about a day.

Vancouver is the third most populous city in Canada. The city has an excellent public transportation system and is considered one of the world's most bike-friendly cities. You may find that it's easier to leave your rental RV at the campground and then ride a bike to get around.

The best time to book an RV rental in Vancouver is from May through the end of September, when highs average between 15°C to 23°C. Remember that whenever you plan to visit, it's a good idea to bring a raincoat since Vancouver has a reputation for rain.

RV Campgrounds in Vancouver

One of the only RV campgrounds located within Vancouver city limits is the Capilano River RV Park. It's located near the Capilano River Suspension Bridge Park, Third Beach, Stanley Park, the Vancouver Aquarium, and a TransLink public transportation station. Campground amenities include a propane filling station, vehicle washing area, and 24-hour security. All of the sites have full hookups, a picnic table, and landscaped lawns.

Campers will have to look near the city's outskirts to find other top-rated Vancouver RV parks. Eagle Wind RV Park is a gated facility located east of downtown Vancouver. The spacious sites have crushed gravel pads, full hookups, and a picnic table. Amenities include an outdoor swimming pool, a spa, and a laundry facility. Eagle Wind RV Park is open year-round and is an excellent place to stay if you plan on making day trips into Vancouver.

You might also like Golden Ears Provincial Park, one of the closest provincial parks to Vancouver; it's an excellent place for a staycation or a traditional camping experience. The park is popular for swimming, fishing, canoeing, and horseback riding. The basic, gravel RV sites don't have water, electricity, or sewer, but registered campers have access to water faucets, showers, and a sanitary dump during the summer season. Golden Ears Provincial Park is approximately 52 kilometres from Vancouver and a day's drive from Mount Revelstoke or Yoho national parks.

Things to Do in Vancouver

Vancouver is known for its outdoor spaces, and the city's parks are not only scenic but also some of the city's most popular attractions. The Capilano River Suspension Bridge Park is home to the 137-metre long Capilano Suspension Bridge, which hangs 70 metres above the Capilano River. The park also has several towering attractions, like the Cliffwalk and Treetops Adventure. Since heights aren't for everyone, find ground-level entertainment at Stanley Park. This park is built within a natural rainforest and is Vancouver's largest and most beloved urban park. Here you can play in the water at Third Beach, ride the Stanley Park Train, see fish at the Vancouver Aquarium, or walk along the paved, 8.8-kilometre Vancouver SeaWall trail.

It's hard to visit Vancouver without seeing some of the city's top-rated attractions. Animal lovers won't want to miss an opportunity to spot an orca or grey whale. Schedule a whale-watching tour or other sightseeing adventure to get a genuine animal experience. Love the water? Take a zodiac boat tour to Granite Falls or schedule a sightseeing or interactive pirate boat cruise. Vancouver is also home to some of the best kayaking trails. Choose to paddle the urban waterways or opt to rent a kayak and find a more secluded lake. Kayak and other boat rentals are available throughout the city, so it's possible to paddle the more than one scenic inlet, river, or cove. It doesn't matter where you stay; most of the Vancouver-area RV campgrounds are close to kayaking.

For a little bit of culture, leave your RV at the campground and see the best of Vancouver on a bike. Bike rental facilities are scattered throughout the city, so you and your family can rent a bike and explore the city on your own, or you can schedule a guided bike tour. Vancouver has an active art scene; the public art installations are colourful and contribute to the city's multicultural vibe. Looking for kid-friendly exhibits? Visit Science World at Telus World of Science or Beaty Biodiversity Museum.
