My family and a group of friends have been going to Blue Lake for the last few years and always look forward to it.
We have camped in three different locations, on the water with a dock, near the horseshoe pit, and most recently at #57 and #58 across from the playground. The lakeside sites are a little smaller, but the docks make them worth it. Just depends on what kind of experience you're looking for and the size of your group. We chose sites close to the playground (and washrooms) this year as we were travelling with young children and wanted a bigger double site.
It's been interesting reading the comments re. too much noise vs. not being allowed to make any noise. Our experience has been that it's not silent at night, but it is reasonable (and much quieter than some provincial sites closer to the Lower Mainland). We generally stay up our last night with our friends and have never had a negative experience with staff. In fact, we have found the people working for Blue Lake to be friendly and helpful. They're definitely one of the reasons we go back.
We have camped at a number of provincial campgrounds in BC and Alberta. Blue Lake Resort is our favourite for spending time with family and friends. Ultimately, it's family-friendly, the lake is beautiful, there's a good selection of camp sites, and the people (staff and other campers) have a friendly vibe.
Sites inland and close to the playground tend to be bigger.

Thank you for taking the time to share your camping experience. We are thrilled to hear that you had such a good time. Our site variety is certainly one of the more interesting aspects of our campground, and something we would count as a benefit to our Resort.

We do try to maintain a balance between noise allowances and regulations, and we hope that the end result is that our customers feel as though they are respected and in turn act respectfully to others.
We are grateful that you chose to introduce more and more friends to our resort. We enjoy that we can offer them the same holiday experience that you have come to expect. Our staff look forward to when we have the privilege of hosting you next.
