Thanksgiving Camping

It was a last-minute, low-budget trip, but we got out for one night in our tent trailer, cooked a boneless turkey roast, peeled potatoes at the campsite, and enjoyed a small, quiet dinner in beautiful weather! The overnight forecast only showed a low of 9 degrees, which was surprising for October in British Columbia! OneContinue reading “Thanksgiving Camping”

Riverside Recreation Site

Riverside Recreation Site is tucked off to the side of Chilliwack Lake Road. It backs onto the Chilliwack River and other than the occasional road noise, is a beautiful serene place! This spot would be great for group camping as well, as it is quite open.
If you come explore the Beautiful Chilliwack River Valley, be sure to add this site to your list of camping spots!

Mother Daughter Camping By The River

Mother Daughter camping on Bench FSR. Our friends had set up camp and as I drove by I recognized their utility trailer and stopped to say hi! They invited me to join with my family so I went home and asked everyone if they wanted to go. Only my daughter wanted to so we packed up the tent and the camping bins, and we hit the road.
I started from the Ryder Lake side so my daughter could enjoy the views along the way and before we knew it, we had arrived!
Setup didnโ€™t take long at all and we enjoyed our one night by the river.
