National Craft Month

national craft monthWe can’t let this month go by without mentioning that it’s National Craft Month. What a fun, creative way to start Camping Season!

We have so many talented campers but, for those of us that need a little help, we’re bringing you a compilation of easy, fast, kid-friendly DIYs and crafts for your next camping adventure at our resort.

  1. Single-use Soap Leaves. We think this is a GREAT idea! You bring it into the shower, you use it, and you toss it! Buying single-use products can make your life so much easier, but it could get pricey. Making these one-timers is much more cost-effective to buying them - and you get to pick the ingredients! Click here for step-by-step soap leaf making instructions.
  2. Homemade Calamine Lotion. Bug bites, poison ivy, sunburn - you can use this lotion to bring relief when you, or the kids, find yourself with any of these issues, and more! It’s so easy to make; plus, you can feel good about these ingredients, too. Click here to see the ingredient list and DIY instructions.
  3. Natural, Outdoor Fly Repellent. Bugs are EVERYWHERE! This natural fly repellent is made with essential oils. Again, feel-good ingredients….that still do their job! Click here for all the details.
  4. Cute Camping Scene in a Jar. It's a cookie jar, Epsom salt, mini trees, a camper ornament, string, Washi tape for the bunting, and LED strand lights as the final touch. {Check out the photo in this post!} We don’t have step-by-step directions; we originally found the pic and description here. You have the photo as inspiration but you can add your own creative spin!
  5. Creative Pumpkin Carving Ideas. We love Halloween - so we think this Halloween Car & Camper Pumpkin Duo is just perfect! The kids (and your camping neighbors!) will love this displayed outside your RV! 

Let us know if you try any of these crafts. We’d love to see pictures or, even better, show them to us IN PERSON around our resort.

Happy Spring, Happy Crafting, and Happy Camping with us!

Why Spring is our FAVORITE Season!

Spring Has SprungSpring has officially sprung (although Mother Nature might have missed the memo)! Spring is a happy time and we’ve realized that this season is our favorite season, for many reasons…..

  • SPRING means that winter is over! Goodbye winter weather, eventually. We love having four seasons - but winter gets old REALLY fast with snow and storms and everything that comes with it.
  • SPRING brings beautiful colors! When you think spring, you think colorful - and lots of it! The trees, the flowers, the fruits, the veggies. There are so m  any things blossoming in the spring!
  • SPRING weather is delightful! Hello sunny days and cooler nights with a light breeze. Yes, rain will inevitably make its way into the forecast (more often than we’d like!), but you take the good with the bad. And, sometimes rainy days are just what the doctor ordered. It gives you a chance to stay indoors, take care of things, stay in your pajamas, and watch movies. We’ll take the spring weather!
  • SPRING days are long! It took us a few days to get adjusted after the time change earlier this month, but the longer days give us so much more time outside doing the things we love! It’s a real treat for the kids who can play in the fresh air long after dinner is over - and it's still light out.
  • SPRING is our segway into summer! Just the word ‘summer’ brings a smile to your face, right? No school, no homework, less rigid schedules, and tons of family time. Great weather, fun in the sun, and a relaxed attitude. Summer may be our SECOND favorite season of the year! ;)
  • SPRING brings us Camping Season...NEED WE SAY MORE?!

We are so excited to welcome all of our camping families - old and new - back to our resort. We have so many awesome new adventures to take you on...hope to see you for the exciting ride!
What are you waiting for? Contact us today to book your reservation for your next stay.

Spring Camping Recipes

spring is hereWe are just a few days from spring and we could not be more excited. Our favorite season is packed full of beautiful weather, colorful flowers, and CAMPING, LOTS OF CAMPING! We’ve been waiting all winter for this time of year and we just can’t wait for spring to finally...spring.

So, since we’ll be seeing a lot of you soon, we’re here with some camping cooking tips & recipes to get you prepared for some spring camping food fun!

Here are some spring camping cooking tips:

  • Use seasonal fruits and vegetables. You know the term, “When in Rome…” Well, we’re here to tell you, “When it’s spring…” Seasonal fruits and vegetables are fresh and easy to find - because they’re in season, of course!
  • Use seasonings liberally. Seasonings are a great way to add TONS of flavor without adding fat and calories. Don’t underestimate the power of great seasonings! They can jazz up any meat, vegetable dish, or even a boring side of potatoes.
  • Use ‘one pot’ meals. It’s like the theory behind a crockpot...throw everything in one dish and let it cook. Less prep, less mess, and less to clean up!

Here are some delicious spring camping recipes:

  • These PopSugar camping recipes can take you from breakfast to dinner and everything in between. Check out their 17 meal ideas here!
  • These recipes are easy and diverse; you can find whatever you’re in the mood for!
  • When in doubt, you can always go with a salad! It can be filled with tons of colors and flavors. These irresistible spring salad recipes go way beyond lettuce.

Now we’re even more excited for spring and camping season...and ready for lunch! We hope to see you, your family, and your friends (and your spring camping meals) in a few short weeks around our resort! Call us today to book your next camping adventure with us. Happy Camping to everyone!

National Peanut Month

National Peanut MonthThis month, we’re celebrating one of America’s favorite snacks...and biggest allergens...PEANUTS! March is National Peanut Month and we couldn’t be more excited.

We think peanuts and peanut butter should be one of your camping staples. As long as you are not allergic to these little nuts, there are so many ways and reasons to enjoy them. We’re listing just a few of them in this blog post. Check it out:

  • They’re easy to store. They do not need to be refrigerated. Peanuts and peanut butter can last for MONTHS in the pantry!
  • Everyone loves a PB&J sandwich. We all grew up on them, right? They’re so easy to throw together and taste great. The perfect lunch or snack for all ages!
  • They’re a healthy snack. Yes they are! Peanuts taste great and are good for you; they’re the perfect package. Peanuts are a great source of protein, are high in healthy fats, and are a great source of many vitamins and nutrients.
  • Even if you’re allergic, there are other options. There are a variety of other nut butters, such as cashew and almond. If you’re allergic to those nuts, too, there are mock-butters available - like sunflower and soy butter - that taste (almost) as good as the real thing!
  • Powdered peanut butter is great in recipes. Powdered peanut butter is made of peanuts that have been pressed to remove the fats and oils. Therefore, it has less calories, less fat, and is much easier to use in certain recipes. You can add a little water and eat it like ‘the real thing’, as well.
  • You can jazz up your s’mores. You can spread a little (or a lot!) of peanut butter on your favorite campfire snack to instantly jazz up a boring, traditional s’more!

So, tell us your favorite way to enjoy this delicious, nutritious nut!

R U Ready to RV Camp?

Welcome RV CampersThere’s a very good chance that, if you’re at our resort, you’re staying in an RV. Lucky you! Camping in an RV gives you just the right amount of comfort during your vacation with us. Everyone that camps in an RV already loves it, but what about the folks that have NEVER camped in an RV? (We know...can you imagine?) We’re stepping in to show you why you ARE ready to RV camp with us!

1. Less space is a good thing! Everything’s within arm’s reach and, after a few trips, you become pretty good at bringing only what you know you really need/use because your space is limited!

2. It has (almost) all of the comforts of home, so it feels like home! No luggage, no need to pack and unpack; everything has its own special place in your RV because it’s just like home. Well, your home away from home - on wheels.

3. Close quarters yield major bonding time. Great family time is spent hanging out in and around your RV.

4. Your pet may be happier! We can almost guarantee that Fido will enjoy any and all of our accommodations, but he or she may be most comfortable in your RV with you and your family all in one space.

5. You can cook in you RV! Research simple camping meals; then, you can bring the ingredients, cook them, store them, and reheat them right in your RV’s mini kitchen!

There are so many reasons why you are ready to RV camp with us! It adds a whole new element to your camping adventure.

Camping season is right around the corner; literally, we can see it! Don’t wait another minute to reserve your spot at our resort for a magical, delightful, fun-filled, family-friendly, jam-packed camping experience. We’re waiting to hear from you, answer all of your questions, and book your reservations now!
