We recently threw away our 3 bedroom tent because it was getting too old and the zipper stopped working. Last time we went camping our zipper broke and we had to use string and tape to close it. We love camping because it is so very relaxing, we just eat and play all day. However, I really dread putting together tents, especially our large tent. If you have young children, you probably understand that a crying baby and the need to set up is not a fun combination. Lately we have been enjoying glamping, yurts, and cabins because we don’t need to bring or better yet set up a large tent.
On 4th of July we stayed at Mary Smith Campground in one of their tent glamping units. This campground has been named as one of the prettiest campgrounds in California and we can see why. It is located in Shasta-Trinity National Forest. We loved sleeping on a comfy queen size bed. There is only 1 bed but room inside for double cots. I’m thankful that this isn’t our daily living situation.
This camp is surrounded by pine trees and the view of the Lewiston Lake from our glamping site was pretty amazing if you ask us.
We did not own our own canoe before we came here so we rented theirs for the day and loved it so much that when we came home we actually bought one ourselves.We tried fishing for rainbow trout but we had no luck. The reservoir is 9 mile-long.
The view from the tent was so beautiful. This is one amazing place to wake up to.
Our children were sick with a fever for a whole week before we came. We got sick from our dear friends. We could have canceled this trip but what I have noticed is that we do better when we are outdoors in nature. Fresh air does wonders. We never travel if we are sick and we know that we will be around others. We also never travel if we plan to do a lot of walking. We were able to sit around all day if we wanted to but the kids felt good enough to swim and canoe. There was hardly no one here due to it being the 4th of July because no fireworks were aloud. We were totally okay with that because we never buy fireworks anyways.
Thank you for reading our post. We share a new post every Thursday at 8 pm.
