I would like to road trip through BC and end at Harrison Lake. The area is surrounded by mountains, so there’s lots of hiking trails to explore, and the lake would be great for kayaking. I would love to camp at Cogburn Family Wilderness Resort!

I’m looking forward to camping at Vezeau Beach on opening weekend and meeting all of the Bonnyville campground caretakers.  I plan to buy some Mundare sausage and perogies on the drive out to the campground.

In 2022 I would like to camp or stay in the cabins at Carbon East Campground.  It is one of my favorite campgrounds close to Calgary and I look forward to bringing my daughter to the playground, exploring the Badlands and hopefully going to a movie night hosted at the campground.
