Are you a fan of fall camping? I have always been attracted to the idea of camping when the air is crisp and the leaves have turned to red and gold, but we've never really done it. Fall is often busy with back-to-school, homework and the start-up of kids' sports and dance activities. But this fall the weather was so amazing and I felt like we best take advantage of it.
So when Kampgrounds of America (KOA) invited my family to camp at the Toronto West KOA in October, we were all for it. We went on the Thanksgiving weekend because Toronto West KOA is not far from where I grew up in Hamilton and was the perfect place to stop for a couple of nights before heading to my in-laws' house for dinner on Sunday.
Although we were technically camping in fall, I admit we were hardly roughing it. Toronto West KOA has an impressive selection of cabins, from 1-room camping cabins (with no bathroom) that sleep 4 to spacious deluxe 2-bedroom cabins that sleep 6. We chose the "Columbia" model 2-bedroom cabin with living area.
Our cabin had a kitchen with fridge, microwave and sink. It didn't have a stove, but there are models that do if you so desire. There is a barbecue right outside the front door as an alternative too. The cupboards and drawers were stocked with pots, pans, dishes and flatware. The kids loved the small second bedroom with its built-in set of bunk beds. My youngest even brought a string of lights to decorate the room with. The room has a sliding door for privacy and a window for natural light.
As with the last time we stayed in a KOA cabin, I was truly impressed with the ingenuity of the cabin's design. It's not a big space, but every bit of it is designed for efficiency and convenience. Take, for example, the desk area, above. There is a rack above for clothing, with a shelf for pillows, a space underneath with a laundry hamper and shelves for extra linens. There are hooks all over for bags and jackets, and there is even a retractable clothes line that goes across the bathtub. This cabin had me dreaming of buying a piece of land and building my own little cabin.
There are also seasonal and holiday-related family activities planned for weekends at each KOA. Ours had a holiday feast for Thanksgiving.
We enjoyed our fall camping trip and will definitely do it again in future. How about you? Have you been camping in fall? Tent, trailer or cabin?
