My Aussie brain conjured up images of the American Wild West when I heard the name “Dry Gulch”, and this was not the ONLY TIME it would happen in Canada. But dry Gulch Provincial Park is located just south of Kootenay National Park, a Canadian wonderland of forest, river, mountain, valley, bears and moose.
More often than not we stayed at Provincial Parks on our three week road trip around British Columbia in 2010. Dry Gulch is typical of a B.C. provincial park campsite – clean, spacious and in an amazing natural setting.
A fire is my idea of camping heaven, so I happily cajoled B.H. into purchasing wood and lighting the fire. It doesn’t matter what has gone down during the day, with a fire crackling away, and maybe a glass of red in my hand, suddenly life is fantastic.
See how neat and tidy Provincial Parks are?
Budget Camping Tip
Wood is for sale in Provincial Parks, but keep an eye out for wood for sale at the road side, especially in out of the way places – it is quite often a lot cheaper than in the parks. Carry an old shopping bag or sack to keep it in so it does not dirty other things. Our R.V. had a little compartment accessed from the outside that was the perfect size for firewood.
Have a Fantastic Friday. Do you have a camp fire planned for this week-end?
