We know you’ve got camping on the brain (don’t worry – we do, too!) but this isn’t just the beginning of camping season…it’s also a very important month for American taxpayers. You have to file your 2017 tax return by Tuesday, April 17th!
Tax Day is usually April 15th but, this year, that date falls on a Sunday. In this case, Tax Day would normally be pushed to the next business day, Monday, April 16th. However, this year, April 16th is Emancipation Day — a legal Washington, D.C. holiday commemorating Abraham Lincoln’s signing of the Compensated Emancipation Act, which ended slavery in the nation’s capital on that day in 1862! Therefore, Tuesday, April 17th it is.
So, if you haven’t filed your taxes yet, you’re in luck. We decided to come give you a few last minute pointers so you can get that tax return signed, sealed, delivered, and filed by April 17th!
We hope you get a great tax refund this year! We think that family camping fun at our resort is a great way to spend the “extra” money that the government sends you. Call us to book a reservation today!
We can’t let this month go by without mentioning that it’s National Craft Month. What a fun, creative way to start Camping Season!
We have so many talented campers but, for those of us that need a little help, we’re bringing you a compilation of easy, fast, kid-friendly DIYs and crafts for your next camping adventure at our resort.
Let us know if you try any of these crafts. We’d love to see pictures or, even better, show them to us IN PERSON around our resort.
Happy Spring, Happy Crafting, and Happy Camping with us![Photo credit: Farmgirl Paints]
Spring has officially sprung (although Mother Nature might have missed the memo)! Spring is a happy time and we’ve realized that this season is our favorite season, for many reasons…..
Goodbye winter weather, eventually. We love having four seasons – but winter gets old REALLY fast with snow and storms and everything that comes with it.
When you think spring, you think colorful – and lots of it! The trees, the flowers, the fruits, the veggies. There are so many things blossoming in the spring!
Hello sunny days and cooler nights with a light breeze. Yes, rain will inevitably make its way into the forecast (more often than we’d like!), but you take the good with the bad. And, sometimes rainy days are just what the doctor ordered. It gives you a chance to stay indoors, take care of things, stay in your pajamas, and watch movies. We’ll take the spring weather!
It took us a few days to get adjusted after the time change earlier this month, but the longer days give us so much more time outside doing the things we love! It’s a real treat for the kids who can play in the fresh air long after dinner is over – and it’s still light out.
Just the word ‘summer’ brings a smile to your face, right? No school, no homework, less rigid schedules, and tons of family time. Great weather, fun in the sun, and a relaxed attitude. Summer may be our SECOND favorite season of the year! 😉
We are so excited to welcome all of our camping families – old and new – back to our resort. We have so many awesome new adventures to take you on…hope to see you for the exciting ride!What are you waiting for? Contact us today to book your reservation for your next stay.
We are just a few days from spring and we could not be more excited. Our favorite season is packed full of beautiful weather, colorful flowers, and CAMPING, LOTS OF CAMPING! We’ve been waiting all winter for this time of year and we just can’t wait for spring to finally…spring.
So, since we’ll be seeing a lot of you soon, we’re here with some camping cooking tips & recipes to get you prepared for some spring camping food fun!
Here are some spring camping cooking tips:
Here are some delicious spring camping recipes:
Now we’re even more excited for spring and camping season…and ready for lunch! We hope to see you, your family, and your friends (and your spring camping meals) in a few short weeks around our resort! Call us today to book your next camping adventure with us. Happy Camping to everyone!
This month, we’re celebrating one of America’s favorite snacks…and biggest allergens…PEANUTS! March is National Peanut Month and we couldn’t be more excited.
We think peanuts and peanut butter should be one of your camping staples. As long as you are not allergic to these little nuts, there are so many ways and reasons to enjoy them. We’re listing just a few of them in this blog post. Check it out:
So, tell us your favorite way to enjoy this delicious, nutritious nut!
There’s a very good chance that, if you’re at our resort, you’re staying in an RV. Lucky you! Camping in an RV gives you just the right amount of comfort during your vacation with us. Everyone that camps in an RV already loves it, but what about the folks that have NEVER camped in an RV? (We know…can you imagine?) We’re stepping in to show you why you ARE ready to RV camp with us!
1. Less space is a good thing! Everything’s within arm’s reach and, after a few trips, you become pretty good at bringing only what you know you really need/use because your space is limited!
2. It has (almost) all of the comforts of home, so it feels like home! No luggage, no need to pack and unpack; everything has its own special place in your RV because it’s just like home. Well, your home away from home – on wheels.
3. Close quarters yield major bonding time. Great family time is spent hanging out in and around your RV.
4. Your pet may be happier! We can almost guarantee that Fido will enjoy any and all of our accommodations, but he or she may be most comfortable in your RV with you and your family all in one space.
5. You can cook in you RV! Research simple camping meals; then, you can bring the ingredients, cook them, store them, and reheat them right in your RV’s mini kitchen!
There are so many reasons why you are ready to RV camp with us! It adds a whole new element to your camping adventure.
Camping season is right around the corner; literally, we can see it! Don’t wait another minute to reserve your spot at our resort for a magical, delightful, fun-filled, family-friendly, jam-packed camping experience. We’re waiting to hear from you, answer all of your questions, and book your reservations now!
Did you know that February is American Heart Month? This is a great time to learn about heart disease, the leading cause of death for both men and women in our country. In fact, in the United States, someone has a heart attack every 40 seconds! Each minute, more than one person in the United States dies from a heart disease-related event.
The statistics are scary, but they are real. That’s why it’s so important to learn as much as you can so you can protect yourself and your loved ones, and become aware of what to do if you or someone you love experiences any heart-related issues.
Here are some important topics and guidelines you can follow (in no specific order!):
When you feel your best, you can be your best. We wish you a healthy, happy heart month and we can’t wait to see you for Opening Day; this is going to be a great camping season!
February is here and Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Some of us already have big plans, gifts purchased, and love notes written.

Love is in the air – and camping season is right around the corner! So, we’re here to help with potential gift ideas and Valentine’s Day inspiration. Think of this blog post as cupid’s arrow leading you in the right direction to make the day perfect for your camping loving Valentine!
Whatever you decide to do for your Valentine, we know they’ll appreciate it! After all, Valentine’s Day isn’t about what you buy or get as a gift; it’s about spending time with your loved one(s) and celebrating LOVE….and the fact that camping season is a stone’s throw away! We are counting down the days (and we know you are, too). Can’t wait to see you in the spring, friends! And Happy Valentine’s Day!
