Ten #VanLife Friendly Campgrounds: Vancouver & Vancouver Island Edition


Hitting the open road in your converted van is glorious, but it’s not always easy to simply pull over and catch a few zzz’s wherever you please. Fortunately, British Columbia is home to a massive network of campgrounds where you can safely park and make camp for a few days. We’ve put together a list of 10 trustworthy campgrounds in the nearby Vancouver and Vancouver Island areas to help #VanLife travellers easily locate a reliable place to rest up before setting off on your next big adventure!

Take a look at these fantastic campgrounds, all within a short drive from Metro Vancouver, that offer space, hookups, shower and laundry facilities, access to outdoor recreation and so much more. Note: during the peak of camping season, it’s advised to book your site or call the campground in advance, and be sure to monitor changes due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
