    I did the ol Algonquin high school paddle trip, 3 nights, 4 days with food made by my classmates.
    I filed it under an “experience”, consisting of much suffering and mild enjoyment.

    Anyone here familar with Ojibway Provincial Park in NW Ontario? Trailer access needed, 17' hybrid.

    We are looking for a park to visit from Winnipeg, futher then our normal Blue Lake and Rushing River (which book up fast) as they have limited water and secluded spots and gets rowdy on the weekends.

    Unfortunately I’m not familiar with this one.
    Dawson Trail Campground at Quetico PP is nice, especially if you’re a paddler.
    Have you considered any Minnesota State Parks?

    Quetico looks nice and defintely withing driving distance from Winnipeg. It appears they have some decent Water spots available. I'll look into that one a bit more.

    As for MN, I used to as a teen/young adule with my brother, tenting and MTBing. With 2 kids, passports (they lapsed during covid), health insurance and a dog, we generally try to stick to Canda for now. But it will be an option in the future. We used to tent up and down the Lake Superior coast and Little Marais, Grand Marais, Duluth etc.

    Understood.
    Maybe research some private RV parks in NW Onterrible? We’ve been lucky enough to find a few out our way.
    I assume you’re not interested in unserviced camping, but the summer of ‘97 we camped somewhere in Western Manitoba, right on the Ontario border. We had the campground to ourselves and hiked to a nice waterfall. Unfortunately I can’t recall the name.

    I'm starting to reasearch those, as our little hybrid can carry water, has a propane fridge and has a black water tank (I'd pee outside, as would the boys). We can easily do a week of basic or longer if we took a second battery (which I always carry the old one), then we would do 2 weeks.

    We often camp "Basic". The less people the better for me, as long as I have access to decent water for the canoe/paddle board/kayaks and some hiking trails for us and the doggo.

    It's a gorgeous area. The provincial campgrounds can get rowdy on the weekends, but during the week it's pretty quiet.

    There seems to be no mosquitos when we hit the Ontario/Manitoba border too, so that's a plus.

    RV storage is my dream job. There is a fella just outside the city with what looks like at least 1000 units on his property. hang out with the dog and watch the $$ roll in.
    Our lil camper squeeks into our fenced yard which I am very thankfull for. Good reason to never never buy a bigger trailer.

    My trailer is in one of those places in Calgary. The guy has something like 1300 spots and a waiting list. $60-100 a spot for newcomers depending on size. Talk about a perfect business. If he only had water on the land he could add a self serve car wash and bring in an additional $100k a month.

    Ours recently added a dump station and a hose with non potable water. $500 a year for a spot, though.

    Someone lives there full time in a park model but their job must just be security because management is very strict about how no one is supposed to bother them.

    I’d love to have enough space to store our trailer at our place year round.
    However, we did get lucky and found a newer hay barn less than 20 minutes away that was renting storage space for the winters. We had our previous trailer stored in there for the first 5 winters.
    Then we got lucky and found a former horse arena around a 25 minute drive away that would let us store our trailers outside during the summer and inside during the winter. They let us store our big trailer in a separate section of the barn in case we were able to use it during the winter. They let us come and go anytime through the summer.
    The newer hay barn was full of barn cats, so mice didn’t stand a chance.
    The old horse arena is kept clear of animals and has bait and live traps.

    Our first trailer now at the horse arena waiting to be put back on the market.

    IMG_3280.jpg

    Our new trailer parked temporarily in the driveway sometime last fall. I was recently able to park it so we could fit the Prius into the garage and the Tundra in the driveway beside the trailer.

    IMG_3289.jpg

    Our new trailer parked outside the horse arena last summer.

    IMG_3153.jpg

    Our special indoor parking spot at the horse arena. We can come and go as we please. The owners and their nephew live onsite.

    I would LOVE to have indoor storage considering the hailstorms we get here in Southern Alberta. But I guess that is what insurance is for!

    I bet! We just get the odd tornado and ice storm.
    We have been very fortunate. However, we have our names on a wait list for a nearby conservation area that has a winter seasonal camping program. You pick your electrical site and can park your trailer on it from December 1st through March 31st. The fee includes up to 20 nights of camping, unlimited day use for 12 months, plus you can add up to 5 nights for the price of 3.

    Wow, that sounds amazing!


    For outside? that's a deal, I paid $1000 for 6 months indoor heated storage, then it's $100/month for outdoor but gated during in-use season, I think can make banks if you have a dump station.

    For fellow Canucks, I'm going to have quite few things for sale soon, all gen 2 stuff, Fox 2.5 dsc, coachbuilder shackles, I prefer ship within Canada so if you are looking for suspension goodies, let me know.
