Campers now have a new year-round vacation spot in the Sunshine Valley near Hope, British Columbia.
Holiday Trails Resorts has opened a new 20-acre RV resort with 10 deluxe camping cabins. There are 110 RV sites which have 50-amp electrical service, water and fire pits. The one- and two-bedroom chalets are fully furnished with electricity, plumbing, a wood stove and full kitchen, the Hope Standard reported.
“The Sunshine Valley is a unique area and we wanted to be a destination,” said owner Kevin Demers. “It’s just a super deluxe resort. The RVers of today, but more importantly the RVers of tomorrow, want all the bells and whistles when they stop at an RV resort. All of that is going to be provided to them.”
The facility cost over $5 million to build and offers an on-site convenience store, laundromat, 17,000-square-foot clubhouse and fitness center. There are also several hot tubs and indoor and outdoor pools.
Nearby Manning Provincial Park offers seasonal skiing, snowboarding and hiking. ATV trails directly accessible from the resort turn into snowmobile trails in the winter. In addition, waterways provide swimming and canoeing throughout the summer and natural skating rinks in the winter.
A grand opening celebration is planned this Saturday (July 23) for Sunshine Valley RV Resort & Cabins, from 2-4 p.m. There will be an official ribbon cutting ceremony, facility tours, and refreshments and sandwiches.
Holiday Trails Resorts owns six RV resorts in British Columbia two in Alberta and one in Washington state. The company was also recently awarded the contract to operate Coquihalla Campground in Hope.
