Is Thanksgiving camping for you?
Travel trends are showing that travelers are making plans within 10-days of their expected travel date to destinations within three hours of home, so chances are you are planning how to spend Thanksgiving 2020 right now! If your friend & family pods are seeking a down-to-earth escape from everyday life, consider a Thanksgiving camp-out this year.
Do you like adventure, thinking outside the box and getting outdoors? If yes, our campground has available sites, now through November 31, 2020, so make your online camping reservations now!
Kids love the independence of our secure, spacious 15-acre park designed for outdoor pleasures like biking, fishing, relaxing and wildlife viewing along the banks of the Kern River.
Tent vs. trailer?
Tents are super easy to pack and don’t require much space, while trailers allow you to travel and camp with some of the comforts of home. Which works best for your family? Pack your tent or give Camping on the Kern or Tim’s Trailers a call right now to reserve your vacation home on wheels this Thanksgiving. Don't forget to reserve your campsite online!
Need some Thanksgiving Camp-out ideas?
Menu ideas: grill a turkey breast, not the whole turkey; select dutch oven sides; make it a potluck with friends and family to share the cooking; prep and cook ahead of time (freeze what you can) and then heat over the campfire. Keep it simple, like foil roasted veggies, campfire sweet potatoes and roasted turkey breast or a chicken!
Hot beverage ideas: warm cider, hot cocoa, mulled wine, hot s’mores cocktails.
Have the kids collect leaves or pinecones to create authentic, natural place cards.
Outdoor fun: bring bocce ball, play volleyball, fish the Kern, go hiking, biking, and definitely enjoy our dark skies.
Share the gratitude: Although it’s been a challenging year, we can all dig deep to find things we are grateful for and either write these down and pin on a Grateful Tree, or share your thoughts around the campfire. We can all use a little gratitude and reflection on the things we do have.
We are Grateful for you!
Our thoughts are of gratitude and thanks towards you, our loyal camping and adventures guests. Even when you had concerns about where you could safely get outdoors with your friends and family, you made getting outside a priority in the face of all the challenges we’ve seen in 2020. If we don’t get to see you until next Spring, we wish you all wellness, togetherness and the ability to safely get outdoors in winter 2020! Thank you for entrusting MRA as your outdoor guide service and campground. We appreciate you!
