Who would say no to camping in the middle of the Canadian Rocky Mountains? Quinn Creek Campground gave us an opportunity to camp between the Columbia River and Highway 95 while travelling in British Columbia. This campsite is at the backdrop of Purcell Mountains on one side and the Canadian Rockies on the other side giving it a pleasing scenery, a place you wanna be during summer.

Quinn Creek Campground is located along Highway 95 approximately 44 kilometres south of Golden Town and offers both sheltered and unsheltered tenting site, unserviced and fully serviced RV site as well as seasonal and monthly camping sites. Camping fees range between $20 and $40 per night with access to shower and laundry services.

We visited on Canada Day weekend and to our surprise, the locals had arranged fireworks in the evening to celebrate Canada’s 150th. The big celebration came as a huge surprise.

I also had a chance to talk to one of the villagers and she mentioned that the whole village gathers every Canada Day to celebrate together both young and old. Isn’t that cool in this digital world we’re living in?

During the period we visited, the area was experiencing power cuts so we woke up and power was off which meant we couldn’t  use the shower. The two options available were jumping into the nearby creek whose water was glacier cold or going without a shower that day. Such a tight place to be eh: D

  1. You did so much during this trip to Canada! So much more than I have done in my lifetime living as a Canadian *runs away in shame*. I love following your journey and I love seeing Canada through your eyes! It’s a reminder of all that I take for granted in this country! Sigh…

    1. I’m sure you’re exaggerating Nancy hehe. Canada was so much fun, especially the Rockies. I loved Toronto as well.
      Thanks and Happy Travels!

  2. I love Canada, one of my favourite countries in the worlds! Such an outdoorsy place; so glad to hear that you enjoyed it as much as I did! 🙂

    1. Canada is an amazing country. There is always something to do, Winter or Summer for an outdoors person. I enjoyed every bit of my trip.
      Happy Travels!

  3. Camping is so cool, filled with adventures and life changing experiences. Not to forget the survival skills you learn when camping. Your images are brilliant too.
    I love your spirit of adventure. Keep going Carolina.

    1. Hi Lex, I totally agree. So much to learn out there, and ample time to connect with nature. Camping makes life so easy when one is travelling long term in the countryside.

  4. I would need lots of convincing to go camping! It sounds fun but I just don’t know if I could do it. I need a little adventure in my life though! The fireworks were pretty, I would love to see those with the view that you had.

    1. You should perhaps try one night and see if you like it. I love camping, the fact that I get to do everything by myself or with a camping partner.
      The fireworks were a beautiful surprise from the local community 🙂
      Looking forward to your first camping story Courtney xx

  5. What a beautiful place to camp! I’ve never been much of a camper, but I think it’d be fun as long as there was running water and bathrooms!

    1. Thank you Joscelyn. Many campsites that I’ve been to, including this one had water but not throughout. In our last day we jumped into a nearby Creek for a bath.
      That was fun 😀

  6. Looks so beautiful that I would even go camping there and I’m not even a big camper.

    1. Camping surrounded by the mountains was the highlight of our trip around BC.
      So breathtaking xx

  7. What a view!!! I love camping and it’s been wayyy to long since the last time we’ve done that. Every year, we would take our kids along with a caravan of friends and relatives and head to the hill country for a week long camping trip. We have many memorable photos & videos that we now use to blackmail our kids, lol – just kidding. The fireworks must’ve been a nice touch 😉

    1. Thanks Cori for stopping by. Camping as a group sounds fun, especially with family.
