Welcome to Camp That Site. I got the idea to start this blog after 12 years of camping. Each time we arrived at a campground we would take a walk and make notes of the sites we would try to book the next time we camped there.
My blog has now been up and running over a year and so it has evolved. I still review campground sites but now have so much more. Camping gadgets, stories, games, photos, recipes, hikes and humour have all made its way into my blog along with personal stories that sometimes are more related to life than camping.
I will still continue to add reviews as we visit new campground and will follow the same format and goals that I set out with. Telling you which sites have traffic noise, which are big, which sites are best if you are camping with other families, etc. etc. etc. You will notice we do not included prices. These will change from season to season so I have included the campground link at the top of each post so you can easily access up to date information. I also avoid talking about management unless they are outstanding. We find great management certainly enhances our trips but just average or poor management does not ruin it. It is also a variable that can change from season to season and if you follow the camp ground rules and campers etiquette we have found even bad management will leave you alone.
We live in such an amazing area to camp that there is no way we will get to a fraction of the campgrounds around us. We are hoping our fellow campers will be able to share their thoughts and advice so that together we can Camp That Site the first time!
A Bit About Me…
Crater Lake, BC
I am Shannon and for the past 12 years my husband, Blair, and our two children have camped all over BC, Alberta, Washington and Oregon in a pop up trailer. While our friends all moved up to motor homes and hard sided travel trailers we stuck it out. We really enjoyed our tent trailer and it worked great with two young kids but last summer that all changed. In July 2014 we were heading home from the Shuswap and were just leaving Merritt when all of a sudden our left tent trailer wheel went flying off the trailer and we hit the pavement. 4 hours later and $500 in towing we were back in Merritt trying to arrange for repairs on the July long weekend.
A week later the tent trailer was home, the repairs all done and I was ready for a big girl trailer. I was done with the cranking up, pulling out, and drying off. I wanted a few more comforts and a lot more convenience. So two weeks later the tent trailer had a new home and we were the proud owners of a 20 foot travel trailer. I feel like I am now a “glamper” but I will take the label and wear it proudly.
We have now completed several trips in our new vacation home and we love it. We have learned a lot and made many mistakes. I hope that you will find my site helpful and entertaining. It has become a favourite hobby of mine and any feedback or ideas would be very welcome.
Thanks for stopping by
