The Fernie RV Resort (FRVR or Resort) is pleased to announce that 30 new full-service RV sites will be open on July 1st in time for summer camping season. The expansion is responding to the increased demand for RVing and is part of the original master plan.
Shelley Barrington, FRVR General Manager, commented, “We are excited to expand and to continue to accommodate your camping needs. The new riverside section will be referred to as “Section F”, the F stands for fantastic!”
The expansion is located on approximately five acres located between the Elk River and the existing Section D pull-through sites. The sites will be 50% larger than the existing sites and will feature a more natural landscape. Many sites will include mature trees and those with open space will be supplemented with the planting of 60, ( 12 to 14-foot ) deciduous trees.
The increased space surrounding the sites will create a more private camping experience. The FRVR 2021 survey results confirmed that guests have a desire for larger sites with increased privacy. and are willing to pay more for this product. All other RV site pricing remains unchanged from the previous season.
The FRVR opened for business on April 1st 2016 and has enjoyed five successful years of year around operation. Guests have been provided with a modern camping experience with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. The Resort is nestled between 750 metres of beautiful Elk River shoreline, the 18 hole Fernie Golf Club, and Fernie’s Maiden Lake. Riverside trails connect the Resort with the Historic Downtown and shopping and dining are minutes away.
The Resort currently offers 26 pull-through and 75 back-in RV sites, the majority of which offer 50 amp electric and full sewer hook-up service. Also available are 11 tent sites that host truck campers, camper vans and Class B motorhomes. In 2018 five heated yurts were added to accommodate the growing demand for glamping. Free wi-fi service, family-oriented washroom and shower facilities, and a commercial laundromat is available for guests. With the expansion the Resort will now offer 147 sites.
Fernie is a true mountain community, reveling in Mother Nature’s delights. A thriving cultural scene, the enthusiasm of a vibrant youthful population, and a scenic, tranquil location in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains make it unique.
Guests staying at the Resort can enjoy walking, hiking and biking trails from your site and riverside activities including fishing, floating and paddling. In the winter season these trails are groomed for multi-use activities. Fernie has also become known for its great restaurants and shopping too.
Visitors to Fernie often describe their experience as authentic, relaxing and down-to-earth. Perhaps it’s the century-old downtown and rich history, or the pristine natural environment.
