We recently went on our first camping trip of 2021 and it was so great. Last year I went camping with some girlfriends to Guanella Pass and it was so gorgeous I knew I wanted to visit again. And that’s exactly what we did. We did a weekend visit up in the mountains. Our group included myself, my husband Andre, our girls, and my mom! She had been wanting to go on a camping trip and I thought this would be the perfect place.
The Guanella Pass campground is so beautiful and has so many fun things you can do. If you love hiking, off-roading or fishing this is a great camping destination. We showed up on Friday afternoon to set up camp and enjoyed the surrounding area. Our campsite was completely secluded on one side, with more campsites on the other side. And close by was the most beautiful creek that the girls loved visiting.
Though there are so many things to do and areas to explore at Guanella Pass we stayed pretty close to our campsite for the visit. My mother and I are both readers and lovers of a campfire so we were very content to hang out near the fire with a book. We did go on a long walk with the girls and took the girls to the creek for water play multiple times while we were there. We brought a ton of toys and activities for them and they were very content.
It was a wonderful experience. There was some rain but nothing too heavy and it didn’t get unbearably cold at night. The weather during the day was perfect. I am not sure we could have gone on a better weekend. As you may know one of my goals this month is to get outdoors now that the weather has warmed up and I feel like thus camping trip was a great way to kick of the season! Let me know some of your favorite things to do in the summer!
