After work last Friday, I headed onto Vancouver Island for a very short camping trip in Sooke.
Friday night was spent at Walmart buying equipment and preparing for the day ahead of us.
Originally we planned to get at the campsite at around 1pm, however, we had a late start to the day and had to run a few errands before our trip.
We got to Sooke River Campsite at around 4pm. We decided to set our little tent to claim our spot before we explore the rest of the campsite.
We adventured along the potholes. We followed a couple trails such as the Riverside Trail, Sand Pebble Beach, and Ripplerock Trail.
We went off trail quite a few times and to be quite honest, I’m glad we did or else we wouldn’t have seen and experienced these views in a way that we did.
I’ve never really been camping before, except for that one time I went on a glamorous camping trip with my friend’s family, but I’ll have to say that the experience was definitely enjoyable.
We may have forgotten to bring pillows but at least we were warm during the night, thanksgiving to our new sleeping bags.
I highly recommend going before it gets packed during the summer time! The workers are super nice, the outhouses are quite clean, and there are a bunch of areas to explore! For $25/night, you can’t beat that.
