It’s not officially Summer for the travel family until our first camping trip. Over the 4th of July weekend we were able to hit the road and begin our camping adventure. And is there really a better way to experience travel while maintaining social distancing than camping?
Living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest we are lucky enough to be surrounded by what seems to be endless amounts of camping destinations. Utilizing one of our favorite websites recreation.gov we were able to find a simple Northern Idaho camp site named Kit Price campground. A little rough around the edges (apparently trees had been chopped down due to disease and stumps were left throughout the campground), the campsite still provided us with a nice tent spot, a fire pit, and a picnic table.
Beyond our travel families campsite the campground and the surrounding North Idaho Panhandle itself provided our family with an abundance of recreational activities. Such activities as hiking, biking, swimming and boating. Right next to the Coeur D’Alene River we were able to soak up the perfect 80 degree weather in some very cold but clear water. We floated in our little inflatable raft, swam with the flow of the river, and splashed around with the dogs having a fun time creating memories.
Not to shabby for a two day vacation that only cost $21.00 a night with a very scenic two hour drive. All said and done it was a wonderful way for the travel family to get out of the house in a safe environment and create amazing memories. We highly recommend camping as a fun family adventure.
On my next post I will discuss tips for camping as a family, including the equipment we bring, where we purchased the equipment plus costs, food and much more so please stay tuned and comment if there are specific things you would like me to discuss.
Thank you for reading and happy travels!
