Travellers' Tips: Winter Wonderland - Touring in the Cold

Winter Camping ShotBritish Columbia is becoming known as a winter camping destination - with RV Parks and campgrounds now offering year-round camping opportunities. Here are our top five tips for touring BC in the winter:

  1. Think carefully about where to camp. Vancouver Island, Thompson Okanagan, and the Vancouver, Coast and Mountains regions have the mildest temperatures and offer the greatest choice for winter camping in BC.
  2. Plan to save! Weekly and monthly rates are generally cheaper than in the high summer season.
  3. While families are often welcome, remember that winter parks offer quieter RV sites in a predominantly adult environment.
  4. Get ready to socialize. Many year-round RV Parks and Resorts have a clubhouse where snowbirds can mingle for pot luck suppers and other events. Walking trails, local attractions and other activities are usually close by.
  5. Pack for the weather. Wear layers (wools and synthetics are preferable), think soups and stews for dinner, and don't forget your toque! (For our international readers, that's a wool/warm hat).
