The conclusion of the 2015 Camping Season

Well, we finished off our 2015 camping season with back to back weekends of camping at Gold Mountain RV Park in Hedley. This was the way to do it!

First the last weekend in September had 2 Pro-D Days for the kids! Friday and Monday. So we headed out for a 4 night stay. What a great time! The weather was phenomenal. We had a large group rent campsites and cabins. The kids tried their luck at fishing and gold panning. There was quadding to be had up on Old Hedley Road. We even frequented the Hedley Museum again! Saturday night, we all met up around the group campfire to play a game. We laughed until we cried! The kids played happily together. Dogs enjoyed the fresh air. We were in camper heaven!


When the weekend was over, we batoned down the hatches and returned on Friday night for the final camping weekend of the year. This also just happened to be the Mexican Fiesta theme weekend. Hosts Dave and Tracy organized horseshoe and bocce tournaments. Guests participated with costumes and margaritas in hand. It all started with tequila shots early Saturday morning! Saturday night we all got together with our favorite Mexican dishes. Dave served up his favorite margaritas. There were a few large group bonfires. We all left Sunday and Dave and Tracy closed down the campground. Nobody wanted to leave but we said “so long” to our favorite campground and as soon as we pulled away, the countdown to May 2016 began!

2015 was a GREAT year for camping. 12 camping trips under our belt for the year. We will try for lucky 13 next year 😉


** On a side note, Gold Mountain has 4 theme weekends for 2016. They are almost full already so book soon! Cabins, full service sites and even a trailer rental!
