Several huge RVs ahead of us in the line at the Alice Lake gatehouse turned around & left after hearing that there were zero drive-in sites available, while we drove right in, parked & hauled our gear less than a hundred metres to our campsite. Lovely as it was, I have to say, Montague Harbour Provincial Marine Park Campground has spoiled us for campsites. Alice Lake's walk-in sites have far fewer toilets, less privacy & no beautifully level, dry wooden tent platforms. However, we were still away from the roads with a decent size campsite & the children could roam a bit safely.

Linnaeus was fascinated by the campfire--his first ever as there was a fire ban on our last camping trip--& roasting weiners & marshmallows. Bronte, on the other hand, has no natural fear of fire, so we were constantly yelling at her to get back away from the Coleman stove & stop touching the metal fire surround. She got several items of clothing covered in soot, but didn't manage to burn herself, anyway, so we'll call that a success.

Another thing that was awesome was that the weekend was full of firsts for the kids: first camp fire complete with roasted hot dogs & marshmallows, first time we brought along my old inflatable boat for the kids to ride in, one of the first times they've been hiking.
|Linnaeus loved the boat. Bronte, not so much.|
