Camping and clamming – with kids

Leave a comment

Last weekend Laura and I took all four kids south to the Kenai Peninsula to go clamming and camping. We didn’t get any clams but we did have a great time camping with the kids. The kids had a great time with each other, playing In the field where we camped, watching king salmon in the Anchor River, playing on the beach in Deep Creek, and visiting a couple of places I’ll write more about later.










Preparing for a road trip


Next week we will be packing up for a big family road trip. We will be camping almost the entire 2.5 weeks in our 1980s pop-up camper (we are spending one night in a yurt). From our home in Wisconsin we’ll be driving north into Canada. We have 3 days to drive east to Maine. Once in Maine we’ll slowly explore the various state and national parks in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, and the Adirondacks. It’ll be quite the family adventure!

I’ll try to post from the road (currently testing the WP iPhone ap). I’ll share our strategies for staying sane on long drives with 3 little kids, along with our favorite camp meals, activities, and experiences.

In the meanwhile, if you have any favorite New England trails or parks–please share!
