A Camping Experience, Close to Home

For many of us it wouldn’t be summer without a camping trip. There’s something about heading out and “getting back to nature” (no matter how many luxuries we take along) that just can’t be beat. Who doesn’t love playing card games at a picnic table, cooking breakfast outside, or eating a s’more with some family or friends?  Unfortunately, if you’re like me, you might not have the time to head out on a cross-country road trip. Luckily, Langley has all the facilities you need to have a true “camping experience” without the long drive or hefty fuel bill.

Fort Camping

Fort Camping at Brae Island Regional Park includes 156 campsites, 1 group tenting site, and all the amenities you could need. There is even a pool open from May long weekend through the end of August. You can conveniently book a site online through their website.

Derby Reach Regional Park offers a tranquil waterfront camping experience. The Edgewater Bar’s 38 waterfront spots are offered on a first-come first-serve basis. If you’re looking to relax and take in some beautiful scenery then these spots are worth getting up early for. Since there is no option to reserve a spot, it is best to arrive early. The park opens at 6am and often people will line up prior to this to ensure they don’t miss out on this popular campground.

If you’re looking for a truly unique experience then get ready to step back in time at the Fort Langley National Historic Site. All you need is food and your clothing and you’re set to spend the night in the Fort in one of their oTENTiks. Each oTENTik can accommodate up to 6 people and are available from May 1 to October 13.

This is just a sampling of the camping options that are available here in Langley. Langley is home to a number of other RV parks and campgrounds that can be found on our website!

So, if you’re looking for a fun camping experience without the drive time then I highly recommend looking no further than our own backyard. You don’t have to let a lack of time prevent you from having a summer of camping fun!

    Good for Tourism telling everyone about the great camping. I would have mentioned the TransCanada, Fort to Fort, and Derby Reach trail for people who might like a great walk or bike ride.
