What You'll Get
Despite the alluring properties of open flames, only marshmallows and middle-school diaries benefit from being thrust into them. Give your family vacation some flare with today's Groupon to Whistler RV Park and Campground. Choose between the following options:
- For $29, you get two days and two nights of tent camping (a $58 value).
- For $39, you get two days and two nights of RV camping (an $86 value).
At Whistler RV Park and Campground, visitors catch views of Black Tusk and Whistler Mountain and enjoy a wide variety of outdoor activities within a 104-acre park situated in the Coast Mountain range's alpine forests. Families pitch tents beneath the shadow of trees or steer RVs onto sites, each equipped with sewer, water, electricity, and ample room for pullouts for mooching deer. Snowcapped peaks cut across skylines as campers warm marshmallows and grill grub at their site's fire pit and share meals across a picnic table. Guests can tell ghost stories to their leashed dogs, which the campground admits for free. Away from campsites, adventurers hike to take group photos beneath a 200-foot waterfall at Brandywine Falls Provincial Park, pedal their mountain bikes across trails or supplement their outdoor fun with additional activities (cost not included in today's Groupon) such as golf, whitewater rafting or skiing during the winter. Tent campers shampoo under warm water in shower facilities and give forks a chance to play with their rubber duckies at a dishwashing station.
Groups can trek over to an on-site general store to stock up on firewood, ice, and supplies, or make the 18-kilometre trip to Whistler Village, a car-free town where visitors browse more than 200 shops and fill stomachs at 90 restaurants. Whistler keeps RV sites open year-round, though tent sites shut down during the winter while tents construct their cocoons and transform into hang gliders.
Each Groupon is valid for up to two adults and three children. Though Whistler RV Park and Campground sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

About Whistler RV Park & Campground
Whistler RV Park & Campground sprawls over 104 acres of forested lands cradled among the Black Tusk and Whistler Mountains. In such a setting, stunning views are a given, but the park's owners provide plenty of amenities to go with the vistas. The 102 fully serviced RV sites and 44 seasonal tent locations all have WiFi and access to free hot showers. The surrounding wilderness offers plenty of natural activities, such as fly fishing, ziplines, and a newly-built bridge that connects the Brandywine Trailhead within Brandywine Provincial Park with the campground—allowing for easy access to the apline vistas for hikers, snowmobilers, and ATVers.
But there's no shortage of manmade entertainment either, with seasonal opportunities for skiing, rafting, and rugged trails made for ATVs and snowmobiles. Should civilization's beck trump nature's call, the campground provides free shuttle service to the car-free Whistler Village. There, the earth and all its bugs have been trapped beneath cement so you can safely enjoy the resort town's bistros and spas.
