Anyone RVing in southern BC may be better off renting an apartment or winterized mobile home YMMV. These are all the campgrounds in BC that have partial or full winter hookups: here-->


Great links dude. Thanks.

Thanks, a good post, lots of info. I just winterized my 5th wheel today and am glad I have my nice warm house to spend the winter in.

I wonder if boondocking is viable on Vancouver Island.

Are there Provincial Parks open?

Thanks to an Id ten T person in Saskatoon (he was asked to move along, and did so--after pulling his black tank valve) none of the Walmarts in Saskatchewan allow over night parking.


The Provincial Parks are open for the winter--at least where I am on mid Vancouver Island. The rates are half price for a senior, and some have showers. None that I know of have any hook ups at all, and the sites are the next thing to boondocking. During summer you can stay for a total of 2 weeks, but I don't think that there are restrictions after Labour Day. Something to check on if anyone is interested.

One would have to be very lucky to get a serviced site anywhere at this point, but you never know.
