Only 70 of 350 beach front RV campsites are currently booked at Jericho Beach and Spanish Banks in Vancouver, British Columbia with less than 100 days to go until the 2010 Olympic games, according to the RV News Service. The Vancouver Parks Department needs to book about 150 sites to break even.
Motorhomes, truck campers and vans of up to 30-feet can be accommodated in spaces 20 feet wide. Towable RVs are not permitted. The parks are centrally located with shuttle service to the games. Campsites provide clear views of the Vancouver skyline.
Potable water will be available, but no utility hookups. Sewer pumping and propane services may be purchased. Both parks have restrooms with showers. The cost to camp is $95 plus GST per night (Canadian) with a four night minimum. Tow vehicles are not recommended, and are charged an additional $10 per night plus GST.
