There’s nothing like celebrating a birthday with amazing friends, camping at a local lake. The “local” part is important because we ended up camping with about fifteen extra Fernie families, on top of our group of 5 families, and the kids came home with their cups full and passed out for 13 hours. Everyone left the campground happy, even my husband who had to go to the hospital for 5 stitches on his finger.
Camping is one of the only ways I can completely relax and let go. My phone was off for four days and that felt amazing. The kids were busy and happy with new and old friends. The lake was glassy smooth and clear and the campfire roared for hours each night. Life is truly good.

Opening day doesn’t mean much to my family other than the addition of another fun play area for the kids. The kid’s aerial park is a fantastic and shaded place to play for free all summer long.
We are also contemplating signing up the kids for a couple summer camp days. I’ve heard good things about the mini griz rangers.
These are the programs available:
• kids outdoor adventure camp for 6-12 year olds
• camp out at lost boys cafe for ages 8+
• bike camps for ages 8-17
• mini griz rangers program for ages 3-5

From BC Parks website:
“Due to popularity and size of the campground, BC Parks has implemented a maximum stay policy of 7 nights in the peak season in this park (June 15 to Labour Day inclusive). Reservations are made through BC Parks’ Discover Camping Reservation System.”
Also, interesting to note, all weekends seem to be booked up until mid September.

At least, that’s what I was told this was. A new RV Park would be good for all those RVs that drive by Fernie every summer. Perhaps they’ll stop and spend some time here instead.
