Whistler opens camping and RV hookup park for MTBers

by 9

The world’s most prestigious biking destination becomes accessible to budget conscious travellers

Whistler Olympic Park RV & Campground, a new camping destination in BC’s Sea to Sky Corridor, is located within the iconic Whistler Olympic Park in the Callaghan Valley, 30 minutes west of Whistler. It provides 39 campsites, with 20 full-service RV sites and 19 unserviced multi-use sites for tenting and smaller recreational vehicles.

The campground operates from early summer to autumn annually, thereby complementing Winter Olympic Park’s winter offerings as a cross-country skiing and snowshoeing destination and Nordic sport training centre.

Camping prices

Using the online booking system here, we found availability in late September. Camping with no electrical hookup services comes in at £24/night for two people.

In an RV (Campervan for UK readers) the cost per night comes in at around £40.

Wifi is available across the whole site.

Opening times for 2023

For its inaugural season 2023, the campground will be open from June 30 to October 4.

What Mark doesn’t know about social media isn’t worth knowing and his ability to balance “The Stack” is bested only by his agility on a snowboard. Graphs are what gets his engine revving, at least they would if his car wasn’t electric, and data is what you’ll find him poring over in the office. Mark enjoys good whisky, sci-fi and the latest Apple gadget, he is also the best boss in the world (Yes, he is paying me to write this).

    Bit of a content filler this…or a paid news piece?

    The Ryanair of campsites?  A mere 2-3 hour cycle to the trails 😀

    an RV can also be a caravan and a caravan can also be a trailer. it’s awfully complicated

    Pity the bike park tickets and every other expense in Whistler isn’t “budget conscious”…

    Before this, I couldn’t afford to stay in a hotel at Whistler. Now, I can’t afford to camp at Whistler. Is that better?

    But can you afford to whistle at campers?

    Not sure ‘budget conscious’ and owning a camper van go together. In fact I’m certain they don’t.

    Every single time I look at the cost of  purchasing a camper van, I realise I can pay for B+Bs and holiday rental accom for the rest of my cycling life for the difference in ££ (purchase, servicing, massively worse fuel economy, insurance etc)
