We spent quite a bit of time camping this summer, with a total of three camping trips! We started with some time at Birkenhead Lake in Pemberton, and some time camping as we went waterfall chasing within Wells Gray Provincial Park in Clearwater. For our final camping trip at the end of summer, we found ourselves at Golden Ears Provincial Park.
Our three-year-old son, Jacob, woke up for a week straight, asking me “Mommy, can we go ‘camp-in’?” (in the cutest three year old voice ever), fuelling the inspiration to find another spot for one final summer camping adventure. We have been camping in Golden Ears Provincial Park a few times, and while I like to keep going to new places, it is really gorgeous there. Golden Ears Provincial Park is a perfect place for a swim. I know the kids love it, so I found a spot at a different campground (Gold Creek) to switch up the scenery a bit, and off we went.
We liked how spacious the campsites were at the Gold Creek campground, with large sites, but the sites were quite open. It wasn’t very heavily forested between the sites, so you could see the campsites all around you (no privacy) and as people wandered their sites and down the road, it felt like they were walking right through your campsite.
Camping and swimming in Alouette Lake was a perfect way to have one last hurrah to finish off summer adventures. We never want summer to end, but it was a great way to welcome in the changing of the seasons. It was a hot weekend, but the walk in the forest down to the lake was especially a great reminder that the seasons were indeed changing.
