Can we have visitors?
Yes you can, there is no fee for visitors if they park in the day use parking area at the front of the park. If your visitor wishes to park in the campground they will be charged a $10 fee and be directed to visitor parking. Visitors must leave the campsite by 10 pm, no visitor pets are permitted. Maximum five visitors per site. Visitors must abide by the same rules as campers – you are responsible for your visitors.
How many cars can I park at my site?
Only one car, if you have an extra car there is a $10.00 per day extra charge and the second vehicle will need to be parked in an extra vehicle spot not on your campsite.
We cannot accommodate boat trailers on campsites.
Do you have an area for group camping?
Yes we do but it is for tenting only. We do have RV areas in the park that can accommodate groups, so just let us know what your needs are.
What do you sell in the camp store?
Ice cream, novelty items, batteries, canned goods, coffee, drinks, candy, RV supplies, firewood, and ice.
How many people can be on one campsite?
Campsites accommodate families of up to 2 adults and 3 children.
Can I have two RVs or an extra tent on my site?
The City Bylaw in Langley states that each campsite can only accommodate one sleeping unit per campsite (RV or tent), an additional small tent (max 8’x 8′) is permitted if it is for minor children in the same family group.
Why can’t I book a specific campsite?
Booking specific campsites does not allow us the flexibility we require to accommodate the highest number of campers. Campsite allocation is based on length of stay and size of camping unit.
Do you have mosquitoes at the park?
Weather and bugs are a natural part of the camping experience. Because of high river levels we do have nuisance mosquitoes. However, the Township of Langley and Metro Vancouver are taking measures to control, monitor and treat the mosquito population, when it becomes an issue.
How can I reduce my risk of coming in contact with mosquitoes?
Mosquitoes are most active at dusk and dawn. When outdoors, cover up and use insect repellent. Repellent with DEET is most effective and safe when used as directed: The percentage of DEET should not exceed 30% for adults or 10% for children. DEET should not be used for infants under 6 months of age.
For more information on insect repellents please visit Health Canada’s web page.
