NK'MIP RV Park in Osoyoos, British Columbia is a very nice park; I have not wintered there but staged there for a month before we went south a couple of years ago.

Talked to lots of Canadians staying there for the entire winter and they talked very highly of the park and managers.

Weather is probably the best in Canada for winter. Here is an average weather trend for Osoyoos (Click for link)

We live on Vancouver Island near Victoria. The temps during the winter are very moderate. We get half the rainfall of the mainland. There are some great CGs on the Island as well. Living Forest in Nanaimo comes to mind as well as Seal Bay in Comox. Both of these are North of Victoria. There are a few CGs near and around Victoria, but I haven't been to the sites. Most places will have reasonable monthly rents during the off season. We seldom get snow in the winter and only a few days were there is frost on the ground. Good luck with your plans and give me a PM if I can help you with any other info. It is a great place to winter if you don't want to go south.

Places like the Osoyoos area the lower mainland(Fraser Valley) and the southern tip of Vancouver Island are your best bets.
Most winters are pretty mild but it has been know to get a bit nasty at times. The good part is that it never seems to last long.
On the other hand it can snow and freeze in southern California, and Arizona too.

A good day on the road means a better night at the park!

Chip; Is the park in question Pacific Border Crossing RV Park?

If so , I stayed there, for two nights, nice enough park ; BUT; it is right next to the truck border crossing to the USA, and heavy truck traffic starts up before 5 AM.

Been in three other parks in the lower mainland , wouldn't recommend them for long term. Vancouver Island , or Southern interior would be my choice, if I didn't already live on the coast.
