My Camping Adventure

Jun 19, 2017
My sister-in-law Meghan convinced me to go camping with her and my three month old niece. I have no idea how she convinced me to do this. I just must like her a lot. So on Friday night we set out on my very first camping adventure.

We rented a rustic cabin (no running water or bathroom facilities) in Waterloo State Park near Chelsea, Michigan. Meghan and I were excited to hear that the two cabins that sandwiches ours were under going renovations so we had the whole area to ourselves!

We ate, sipped, took walks, read, napped, peed in the woods, and each got a collection of bug bites.

We even foraged for our own fire food, chopped it, and built a fire.

Well, that part was mostly Meghan, but I do know how to grill mean hot dog from my days at Camp Akanac with my cousins growing up.



  1. So glad you had a good time- it looks so peaceful! I'm sure it was nice to have the area to yourselves so you didn't have to worry about any loud neighbors or anything.

  2. That sounds like a great adventure! I honestly don't know how you did it without any running water! I don't know if I'd be able to do it!

    1. Yup! But we had a shower and toilet there right?

  4. I'm so glad you had a good time, such a cute little cabin.

  5. What a fun adventure. I think I would have be a little uneasy because I'm a big scaredy cat! I associate camping with scary movies. I grew up in the 80s what can I say ;)

  6. How fun! I'm impressed with the fire building and lack of water! You ladies ROCK!

  7. Impressive! Chopping wood, cooking hotdogs, and peeing wherever! LOL. It's been a long time since I went camping. Glad you had fun!

  8. How fun!!! I love that you guys did your own wood / fire - that is pretty impressive. And those hot dogs look darn good!

  9. Looks like a good time to me! -Crystal

  10. least it wasn't a tent! I think those kind of camping days were over for me a long time ago, but I might consider a cabin in the woods. I would love to see more of the cabin. How was it?
