Most owners whose camping units have suffered damage, have either been to the park or contacted via phone or email. As another storm is rolling in there may be more tomorrow and there may yet be some that have been missed.
There is still no power, and no estimate for when it might be restored. A reminder that this means there are no functioning services and the washrooms are locked.
Many of the trees in the park, and in particular, those that have partially fallen on camping units will have to await professional removal. There is no timeframe for that at this point. It is a weekend, three days before Christmas and there are much higher priorities in our communities.
The roads in the park are clear, except Teresa Avenue from D-24 through D-37 which is awaiting BC Hydro. Unfortunately this is a low priority item for them right now given the widespread destruction of their infrastructure on the Island and Mainland. The area has been cordoned off and I strongly advise against attempting to access those sites.
Campers may, at their own risk, come to The Springs to survey the damage to their site. Alternatively, campers with specific concerns can reach me at my email: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will reply as soon as possible.
Staff are on-site working through what we are able to handle despite the lack of power and miserable weather.
Please note that we are not able to replace tarps, fix fences, repair gazebos, etc. These items are a normal part of site ownership and thus, the responsibility of the shareholder.
