Camping in Arrowhead Provincial Park

Our final, rather chilly camping trip of 2014 was in Arrowhead Provincial Park for the Thanksgiving weekend in October.

When I say chilly I am, of course, putting a positive spin on it…  It was freezing, we literally had ice on the tent on Sunday morning!

But temperature aside Arrowhead was a lovely Campground, even in October.

We had site number 245 which was an excellent site, completely hidden from the road and neighbours by trees but with a thin tree canopy so it still got lots of direct sun and it was only a short walk to the comfort station.  What more could you ask for!?  (above zero temperatures perhaps? ;-))

While camping in October is not for the ‘fair-weather camper’ it is an absolutely beautiful time of year to be ‘up north’ and enjoy the spectacular fall colour.

Stubbs Falls Trail

Stubbs Falls in particular is a very popular spot and we had to wait quite a while to get photos without there being someone in the way, in the end we decide to go back at night (with bear spray in hand!) to try some long exposure shots.

Along with Grundy Lake, Arrowhead had been one of my favourite parks this year and this was a very fitting place to make our last camp of the year, roll on camping season 2015 🙂
