Ken & I have been camping once as a couple, and we went once as a family. It was a lot of fun to be outside and to "get away", but we were exhausted after one night because we slept so poorly! Last summer, we opted to have a backyard camp-out (and we came inside to sleep in the end!). So, while our kids love it, Ken and I have realized that we're not big fans of camping... at least not in the traditional way.
We do love to get away and enjoy nature however, which is why we were excited to spend a few days at the Niagara Falls KOA (Kampgrounds of America) in Ontario. It didn't take long on their website before I discovered that they not only offer cabins to camp in, but they also have "deluxe cabins".. and our preferred style of camping was discovered! :)
The girls had been talking about this little trip for weeks, so when we were ready for our road trip, they were very excited!
I took lots of photos of our time at the KOA because there is just so much to see and do! I'll walk you through our experience with lots of visuals! Here are the girls in front of our cabin. We were happy to have a fire pit and a BBQ to cook over as well as a table with 6 chairs outside, and a table with 4 chairs inside. I loved the swing on our little front lawn!
Inside our cabin, we were very happy to have a bathroom (not pictured) with a full tub and shower (with good water pressure), regular toilet, and small vanity with sink and mirror. They provide hair/body soap in the bathroom. Because the females in our family have a lot of hair, it's hard to do without conditioner (I know.. we think we're glamping here ;), so Ken drove to the grocery store to grab some. This "Kampground" is very conveniently located near lots of stores, so he didn't have to go far!
