We’ve officially planned and booked our two longer holidays for this year!
First up and Dave’s choice, is nine days at Hammock Harbour on Lake Couchiching. We’ll be taking our boat as the purpose of this holiday is mainly fishing Lake Simcoe and Lake Couchiching. Our campsite and boat slip are booked! This will be a new park for us as will using our powerboat on these lakes. There is a lack of hiking trails in the area, but there’s a couple golf courses, a biking trail around the lake and Casino Rama nearby. I’m sure we’ll find some cool things to do when not fishing. Downtown Orillia is also a very pretty place to visit and spend some time.
Our second holiday and my choice is Batman’s Cottages and Campground on Manitoulin Island for about nine days. We won’t be taking our boat, but I’m hoping we’ll be taking our kayaks. I’ve warned Dave to get his hiking boots warmed up as I’ve found lots of beautiful trails near the park. Misery Bay Provincial Park looks amazing as does the Cup and Saucer Trail. I booked a pull thru, lakefront site and I’m hoping we can park the fiver so my back large window looks out over the lake. We’ll be visiting here mid-August. This will also be our first visit to this campground. We have been to Manitoulin once, maybe 30 years ago with friends but we didn’t camp.
We plan on booking Camper’s Halloween at Bronte Creek this year. We really missed it last year. The plan is to leave our seasonal on Thanksgiving Monday when the park closes and park at Bronte until the following Sunday. Also, we plan on booking a week again at Fifty Point in November. We’ll be out a little later, like mid November which will still allow time for our dealer to replace our floor before winter camping 2020 starts! It seems strange to look that far ahead but hey, planning is fun!
In the meantime, we’ve got only five weekends left of winter camping at Valens! I believe we’re almost halfway through the season already! Wow! So far winter camping has been more challenging than usual, but it’s still a fun way to use our fiver all year and enjoy all four seasons RVing!
