My family has a travel trailer that we hitch to our truck and travel just about anywhere we want to go. We have two pre-teen boys and they just love to camp out. After doing a little research we discovered that Loon Lake Lodge had hookups for our camper and they also had tent sites and yurts. The boys wanted to pitch a tent, but we got them a yurt for themselves. It had bunkbeds which was much better for them than sleeping on the ground – in my opinion anyway. They even had a little refrigerator where they could keep their water and soft drinks cold and a microwave for evening popcorn snacks.
Our site was perfect for our needs. We are pretty much self contained, but we did need to be near the facilities. Which we were. The boys rented a paddleboat one afternoon and their father took them fishing every morning. Then one evening we had an early dinner and drive the few miles to the Dean Creek Elk Viewing Area. The brochure said one of the best times to see the heards was right before sundown, do we parked and had a great vantage point. It was very educational for the boys to see wildlife as it should be – without interference from humans.
In our camper area we met some very nice people and the boys also found some children their own ages to pal around with. Everyone was friendly, including the management. There isn’t anything they could have done to make us feel more welcome. Our set up was easy and worry-free.
