Camping Tips

So, we are a few weeks into the camping season and I couldn’t be happier. Here are a few tips and things that I have noticed:

Sure, reserving costs a bit extra but it is so worth it. You get to select the spot you want and you can roll up at any time. I’m into a “stress-free” camping experience.

You can check out most spots online and they usually have pictures.

Bug spray and mosquito coils are a must.

If one of you has gas, keep the windows of the camper open AND buy an air freshener.

Cedar wood smells the best, so always try and have some of that on hand.

When making snacks late at night, don’t forget to clean up so animals don’t pop by for a visit.

Always go with awesome people (1 or a group). These are some of the best memories you will make!


Go with a lumberjack/ Tarzan type soul. They will build you a huge fire and chop wood galore.



If you have the option to camp by a river or ocean, do it! There is nothing like waking up to the view and sounds of water, drinking your coffee in the rising sun while sitting on a shore or riverbank.



Marshmallows and cold beers/coolers are also a must.



This past weekend we were at Birkenhead Lake and I LOVE  it there. I’d go back (to site #33) every weekend, if I could. Where is your favourite spot to camp?
