Durango Camping Trip

We headed down to the Durango area with Stacy’s parents, who were visiting from Texas, and her cousin and family from Colorado Springs. We had never been in the area before (besides being close at Ouray/Telluride), but heard good things about it. Since the parents needed hookups, we looked for campgrounds and came across Lightner Creek Campground, which is on the West side of Durango. It is a little off the highway, but is so peaceful hidden away in some trees and surrounded by mountains. The campground has basic amenities, like showers/bathrooms, pool, general store, etc. The spots are also not as close as some of the campgrounds in the area are. Pets are welcomed, but we ended up leaving our two pups at home with Aunt Amy.

Salida Camping Trip

This post is a tad bit behind, but we have been swamped with work and baby prep. Over Memorial Day weekend, we went to the Salida/Buena Vista area to camp with some friends. We decided to stay at the Heart of the Rockies Campground, which is about 10 minutes West of Salida. Due to our last minute decision to come here, all the closer campgrounds were full. There will be more info. on the campground in our next post with a full review.

Campground Review – Moab Valley RV Resort & Campground, Moab, UT

We stayed at Moab Valley RV Resort & Campground while we were in Moab, Utah two weeks ago. It is located close to the entrance of Arches National Park and before you enter the town of Moab.

The campground has over 60 sites with hookups and water/dump stations. Their sites include deluxe, premium, and standard – depending on the size of your RV and amps needed. We noticed the premium sites had little sections of grass, which was nice, but not needed for us. There are also cabins and tent sites (even some with canopies) to rent. Free cable is included in your site, but we decided that a tv in the camper is a little too much “glamping” for us!  Continue reading “Campground Review – Moab Valley RV Resort & Campground, Moab, UT”

Moab Adventure – Day 2 & 3

This is the rest of our adventure at Moab from last week.

The weather overnight was wonderful. We even ran our AC/fan for a little while (thank you campground electricity)! We woke up with the sun and began our day. We decided on a semi-easy breakfast of pancakes and vegan sausages so we could start our adventures early. The pancakes are from a mix from Sprouts that we can keep in the camper. We just add some almond milk and flax egg. The sausages are our new favorite find from Field Roast and are apple maple flavored. This is where it is great that the grill has the option to use both grill and griddle. We also purchased a Chai Smoothie from Bolthouse, which was ok but we added additional Tazo Chai to it.

Campground Review – Bear Creek Lake Park, Lakewood, CO

We thought we would give some insight to all the campground and areas we stay at for those that plan on traveling out this way. Our first stop was Bear Creek Lake Park in Lakewood, Colorado. We decided to stay here as our first trip since it is in the same city as we live in and we would be able to run home or to the store if we forgot something!
