West Vancouver RV park booked for Olympics

The day Vancouver won the 2010 Olympic Games the phone began to ring at the Capilano RV Park.

“It was immediate,” said Wayne Baker one of the owners of the West Vancouver campground, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year.

“We were bombarded with calls right away. ”

The RV park, which has 208 visitor spots, is completely sold out for Games time.

“The majority are Americans,” said Baker, also a movie actor. “Ninety per cent are Americans from California and Washington and others are from as far away as Georgia.

“I think they are mostly old clients of ours… and they wanted in right away so they booked.

“We weren’t surprised, we knew it would happen.”

The campers who are coming don’t even know how much their stay is going to cost them yet as the Baker family is still to set their 2010 rates. It is a private park so fees do fluctuate with season and year. This summer family sites with 50-amp power cost up to $60 a night.
