Remember Canada gets warm during the day. It may even hit 80 while you are there, but in the evening and at night it can get downright cold. So keep this in mind when packing.
Also, do not forget your roasting sticks, marshmallows, and the other stuff if you want to make smores. We had a camp fire every night with our kids. It was one of the highlights of being on the lake. Find out if your boat has outdoor chairs provided. If not bring your own that way you can sit around the camp fire comfortably.
There are two great hikes that you can go out near spots that you beach at. One is Albas Falls. This hike can be done two ways depending on the ages of your children. You can stay on the road and just take short detours off of it to see parts of the falls or you can take the actual hike through the woods. Through the woods is the way to do it if your kids can handle it. It is very steep and slippery at places. For little children this would be a very difficult hike and they would probably not enjoy it. But if you can take the one through the woods you will see one waterfall after another. Albas Falls:
Two important tips to keep in mind if you are driving over from USA.
- Get groceries before you leave the USA. Food is a lot cheaper here so you will save yourself a lot of money by buying before you get to the area.
- Also, get gas right before you cross the border. Again gas is quite a bit more expensive. So fill up before you cross that way you won’t have to buy as much gas in Canada.
