July Travels – So Far!

Well we’re midway through the month now and we’ve already been out twelve nights so far. We started the month spending Canada Day weekend at Spring Valley Resort near Mount Forest. It’s a private park, part of Parkbridge Resorts chain of campgrounds. It wasn’t too bad although the pull thru area we were in had zero privacy. There were some nicer back ins, a couple of which we might have fit in, but overall, not much privacy in the overnight area. I won’t give a full review here, but I will on the page I create. Here’s a photo of our pull thru:

Other than the lack of site quality, we really did have a great time at this park. It was a beautiful campground and they put on quite a fireworks display!

We came home for almost a week after Canada Day weekend then headed out to Fifty Point for a couple days to clean and flush our tanks. Well that ended up turning into more like a almost a week. We ended up staying until the Friday that we were scheduled to arrive at Willow Lake Campground! That was the second time this happened. The week before Canada Day weekend in late June we pulled out to Fifty Point for a couple days to flush and ended up there almost another week! Here are a couple photos of our sites at Fifty Point:

We really like Fifty Point. The first stay we were in the 50 amp loop which I really enjoyed and the second time the pull thru 30 amp side. Word of advice, the traffic noise is less in the 50 amp loop. I don’t mind the sound of highway traffic but some do. We brought our propane fire pit and enjoyed a few fires after work. It was a wonderful couple bonus weeks!

We left Fifty Point for a stay at another new park – Willow Lake Campground near Woodstock. I was very excited to stay here, as it was bought by a couple that belong to our RVing in Canada Facebook group. As well, our daughter and son in law joined us for an early birthday celebration and camping friends Harry and Liz stayed for the weekend as too. Our other friends Diane and Albert made a surprise visit on Saturday night! As for the park, I was very impressed with it. There are just some parks out there that are just awesome. Our site was a large pull thru and as is usually the case at private parks, no privacy. We didn’t care. We had a great time and will no doubt return! Here’s a photo of our site:

This Friday we leave for our longer week of holidays. We have a quick stopover at Cookstown\Toronto North KOA to break up our drive. Saturday we leave for Halfway Lake Provincial Park north of Sudbury. I’ve been looking forward to visiting this park for awhile! I managed to book us a nice site that backs onto a small lake. 🙂

We’re there for a week then head to McRae Point for a quick overnight stop on the way home. I’m not a big fan of Sunday Highway 400 South traffic, so I decided to break up the drive home. We’ll be able to miss the traffic heading South if we leave from Orillia on Sunday instead of driving home from Sudbury.

This trip we’ll be bringing our kayaks instead of our boat. It’s been so long, too long since we’ve been kayaking and I’m really looking forward to getting out on the water again!

Stay tuned for more RVing adventures and HAPPY CAMPING!
