Everyday many of us are so immersed in the chaos of everyday life that a lot of us do not usually get many opportunities to enjoy raw and beautiful nature and see it for its real potential.
With that being said, picking out an RV and parking it for a night or two at the Capilano River Park could definitely be your escape for a couple of days or even longer. Reserve your spot before the summer ends!
