Often I get asked where are we going next or what is our next project? And since my mom and I are planners we are always planning something. 🙂 Believe it or not, a lot of thought and research does into many of our trips. You could say my mom and I have a process for Planning a Camping Trip.
When we are looking for a campground we prefer smaller campgrounds that aren’t well known. We consider these campground hidden gems. Lake Somerset Campground was one of those hidden gems that my mom happened to find when our favorite campground was booked.
Camping Season is fast approaching. Have you decided where your first trip will be? We have! It’s our tradition to camp at Elk Neck State Park in early May, even if this trip isn’t the first one on our list for the year we considering it our kick off our camping season.
We broke tradition this year and didn’t have a family thanksgiving at our home, we went CAMPING!!! We stayed at Shenandoah Valley Campground, LLC; this adorable little campground in the Shenandoah Valley, VA. At first we were a little hesitant because it is so close to route 81 but in the end we didn’t even hear the highway and forgot it was there.
The campground has about 37 sites. It is great for quick stops on your way to other destinations or longer stays if you are working in the area. Or you can come stay for a weekend/long weekend, which is what we did!
Most will call us crazy but our latest camping trip was over Labor Day weekend to Riverside Campground in Montgomery Pennsylvania.
Where this campground isn’t very big it is right on the river and for the most part pretty quiet. We have never been to this campground before so we choose our sites by looking at the map online. I do have to say that we were a little disappointed in the size of the sites. We were able to put our awning all the way out but we did not have much room beyond the awning. It was a good thing mom and dad were in the site next to us so we didn’t feel like we were staring into someone else’s camper.
