Summer might be winding down, but here on the West Coast, camping season tends to continue long after we lose the sun. Our mild winters and outdoorsy spirits make all-season camping in the Chilliwack area very popular, but there are a few additional considerations that will help you get the most out of RV camping this fall and winter.
Wildfire season is becoming more of a concern each year. It’s essential that you check for highway and campground closures in the area, pack an emergency kit with fire safety in mind, and do your part to help minimize the risk of inadvertently starting a wildfire.
We recommend booking your campground in advance, even during the off-season, to avoid driving around unable to find a site. BC Parks offers helpful resources for finding and booking campsites that suit a variety of needs, 365 days a year.
There are plenty of ways to prepare your rig for four-season camping, including insulating, weather-proofing windows and cracks, covering the underbelly of your unit to protect tanks, and stocking up on cozy blankets, clothes, and weatherproof rugs.
Now is the perfect time to find a new unit that is specifically designed for four-season camping, sell your current rig, or shop end-of-season clearance models - and O’Connor RV can help!
Whether you’re planning to overhaul your current unit for all-season camping or packing it in for the year, our service team can help.
