We're off to Algonquin

Our inaugural trip with the new tt this weekend.

One campground is open in Algonquin. Should get some good hikes in - calling for sunny days.

This will also be the first time dumping black water. Hopefully we don't have too many big adventures.

We are going to Mew Lake beginning of May. Have been in touch with Algonquin Park reps requesting dates that the water will be turned on at the one and only dump site on HWY 60. The earliest date at the moment is April 28 (depends on the night time temps).

contact info is reina.fuller@ontario.ca

Enjoy Easter weekend at Mew Lake. We were there last Easter and enjoyed it very much. So much warmer this year, so expect it to be very busy.

Hopefully they'll have the water turned on at the spigots in the campground. Last year you could only get water by the jerry can in the laundry room of the comfort station...what a PITA!

Here's a picture from the the Bat Lake trail last Easter. I have more pictures of Algonquin from April '11 in the members photo gallery if you're interested.

Congrats and have fun - it's a great place for some R and R.

Spent a week last Sept at Bonne Chere - just South of there. Loved it.

Bring some stuff for the bugs... just in case

The forecast is great.

Black then grey, black then grey ...

Thanks for the reminder f1100turbo. Any suggestions on what to do when fresh water lines aren't available yet after the water has been dumped?

We were anticipating that water spigots would still be off this weekend. We have two 20 litre jerry cans that we will haul water with.

I will definitely post pics when we are back.

Happy camping!!

Camping was great

We had great weather for our trip to Algonquin Park this past Easter Weekend. The campground was busy but not full (75% full). The nights dipped down to minus 7 Celsius the first couple of nights but the days warmed to about to the middle teens.

We were impressed with the camper. We will have to find our 'routine' for setting up but that will come with time. Seeing how we had an electric site, we had an electric heater going during the night. Everything was roasty toasty at night, especially compared to our previous popup. Dumping the tanks was a success - we were surprised at the lack of dumping stations in the park - can't imagine the line-ups inthe summer!!

Saw several moose, ruffed grouse, beaver and a turtle (!!) while driving and while on our hikes.

We posted some pics in our Album under our profile.

We can't wait for our next trip - probably another Provincial Park in Ontario.

I think I figured out how to post pictures. Here are a couple from our inaugural trip to Algonquin:
