Cable: TV has changed for campgrounds! No more ‘plug in the cable’ at campsites in Canada- the full change to digital took effect June 16, 2016, and we didn’t have much say about it. Even though our 200 serviced site still have a cable hookup, they no longer work without a digital box to go with them – at Living Forest that means a Shaw digital box.
Shaw has given us 60 digital boxes that are available for use by longer stay campers (a week or more). No charge to use one during your stay, but a refundable security deposit will be required. But remember, the really big screen is outside your RV window when you’re camping. For full details contact our front desk 250-755-1755
