Experience wilderness just outside the big city and stay in a campground near Vancouver. The Coast Mountains frame the city skyline and are the perfect camping backdrop.

An hour’s drive leads to alpine peaks and forested sites in large provincial parks. Hike to tent pads in the backcountry in Garibaldi Provincial Park, or pack up the car and drive to a vehicle-accessible site in Golden Ears Provincial Park.

RV campgrounds in the Lower Mainland are convenient camping options, and can make a good home base to see attractions in the city. Some RV sites are a short 30 minute drive from Vancouver, while others are further east towards Chilliwack or north towards Squamish.
