Sometimes you get in the car and you have a concrete plan. Other times, you just pack up your gear and go. This trip was one of those times. We headed towards Vernal, Utah and we checked out a couple places we thought would work out but they weren’t kid/dog friendly (who wants to set up camp where people left shell casings and broken beer bottles everywhere)?!
Luckily, we had seen a KOA campsite in town. We all discussed it and agreed it wasn’t the camping we had it mind but we were 3 hours from home and we set out to tent camp for the night and that’s what we were still going to do!
The campsite was VERY kid friendly. There was so much for Connor to explore before we set up our tents, made dinner and called it a night.
The lesson learned from this trip is that you can always find something to do, even if it wasn’t the original plan; you just have to be open to new experiences and making the best of what you have available.
