Camping Trips

  • Fun Family Camping Trip to the Okanagan, British Columbia

    Okanagan Lavender Herb Farm

    It doesn’t feel like summer until we visit Penticton, the interior of BC where it’s always warmer and where fruit orchards and wineries make for a picturesque summer photo. With our trailer in tow, the average five-hour commute allows us to enjoy the beautiful lush scenery and mountain peak tops until we arrive at Southbeach Gardens RV & Campground, where we have become regulars. Often times the kids will have their tablets and headphones ready for the road-trip, along with pillows and blankets next to them just in case they feel like taking a nap. We would pack fresh fruits, lots of water and some salty snacks to avoid having to make unnecessary stops if someone gets hungry. Continue Reading

    Our Roadtrek at the Rest Stop Outside Hedley

    Recently we took our Roadtrek van on a camping trip "Roadtrekking" through some of the not so well-known but delightful smaller towns in the Okanagan area of the southern interior of British Columbia. The first day, we left the Vancouver area and headed up Highway 1 and the Crowsnest Hwy 3 to Princeton. We spent the first night in the Princeton municipal park campground which has full hook-ups with free Wifi and is located right beside the Similkameen River on Highway 3. It is a great place to stop overnight. Another camping option is the Princeton golf club across the road with free Wifi and firewood for campers. Continue Reading

    Sunnyside Campground Cultus Checking In

    Camping has changed – big time!  Just go to most campgrounds right now and look around.  What do you see?  Hotels!  Yes I said hotels – gone are the modest canvas tents of yesteryear.  Now they have separate entrances, vaulted ceilings, e-ports and solar adapters to charge your electronics.  And some even go as far as having air-conditioning units.

    I stopped into ... Continue Reading

    Geocache - some are as big as an Ammo Box!

    British Columbia has so many outdoor activities to offer and my husband and I love to get out and travel this beautiful province. One of our favourite things to do is geocaching. Regardless of where we stay we are almost certain to be within walking distance of a geocache. Geocaching is an outdoor treasure hunting activity using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of coordinates to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. Continue Reading

  • RVing is a different world – And one I’m starting to love

    woman sitting on rock

    As total newbies, we had never been to an RV park, and had no idea what to expect – but everywhere we went, we were warmly greeted, given information on the area, advice on hook ups, and, although I was more than pleased to see pull in sites, there was always someone around to assist if you needed help reversing. And – they didn’t laugh! It really did feel like we were a part of a small community... Continue Reading
