Winter RVing in British Columbia is a one-of-a-kind experience. Waking up in a winter wonderland of snow while warm and cozy under a nice warm duvet in your winterized RV is many people’s dream. After breakfast, you can put on your winter clothes and head out to your favourite ski hill, cross-country trail, beach hike or ice fishing lake in a matter of minutes!
In British Columbia from November 1 to March 31 the temperatures are low, snow and rain is encountered and daylight hours are a lot shorter but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy RV camping in the wintertime. The Camping and RVing BC Coalition has created a page on their website featuring over 150 campgrounds and RV Parks, plus RV Rental Agencies, with winter rentals, that are open for business for the winter RVer!
Winter is a great time to #CampinBC
