We spent 4 nights at Fort Langley Brae Island Campground recently. The positives were: more than friendly staff, incredibly awesome clean washrooms and long hot showers ($1 = 5 long minutes), electricity & water at site, wifi if afforded ($5 day or $14 week), security (fob to enter), grounds people every day working continually, ice cream, coffee, hamburgers etc on site, pool was great for kids, lots of activities in barn for kids, novelty go carts for rent, good for families (won't see the kids - they'll be busy entire day), propane fill on site, did load of laundry on site, full amenities - we loved all of this.
The only issue we had was the fire out at 11:00 pm - strictly enforced. So.... it was raining most nights - like downpour rain... and we couldn't warm up. Even our propane fire can wasn't allowed to be on. They told us this was GVRD rules but also said they don't want people up past then sitting around a fire... well, that's part of our camping enjoyment. Plus it was so cold and we just had to go to bed at same time as kids. The campfire adult time is the best for us to relax and we couldn't do that.
Also, not a lot of privacy if you seek that. no trees between sites. kind of awkward. The trains run continually all night and are extremely loud. Wasn't able to sleep well at all.
Not sure if we would go back ... mainly because of fire out at 11pm. ps: they also patrol continually till 3 am which is a good security measure but definitely no fire.
It's a good place if you have an r.v. but if you are tenting and there is torrential rains with no fire at night... it's a bit miserable.
Kids had a great time, adults had a great time till 11 pm lol!
