The Vancouver, British Columbia, park board says bookings for the RV sites at Jericho Beach are now close to 70% – but the Spanish Banks site is still sitting empty, according to News 1130, Vancouver.

Both parks are being made available for temporary RV use during the Winter Olympics, which begin Feb. 12 in Vancouver.

Commissioner Aaron Jasper says even though they haven’t been able to fill both locations with RVs, staff is still confident they will break even.

But he says making money wasn’t the main goal.

“The motivation was for us to do our part to help out with the logistics of the Olympics,” Jasper said. “I think it will still be a success, I think the folks that come down with their RVs will still find an enjoyable way to stay in Vancouver and have some of the infrastructure such as transportation that will take them in towards the city.”

Jasper says a large chunk of the reservations have come from Seattle.

    Whistler RV Park is close to all the alpine action! We still have spots available for the Olympics. Price is $135 per night, includes shuttle from park to transit. Visit http://www.WhistlerRVPark.com to book

    I am sorry but $135.00 a night is ridiculous. No wonder you still have spots availalble. I realize Whistler and Vancouver are beautiful and it is a once in a lifetime event but I personally believe we are gouging our visitors to the point of chasing them away and not encouraging them to come back because we are too expensive. At what point do we become more realistic?
