RV Camping Stays are Getting Longer

Chatham Daily News - Chatham,Ontario,Canada
RV camping destinations are experiencing longer stays for both families and couples on vacation this summer due to high fuel prices.

Locations such as Chippawa Cottage Resort and Easy Living RV Park south of Barry's Bay offer a central location in cottage country that is a half-day drive from Chatham-Kent.

Resort owner Donald Dunn is seeing RV campers staying longer as well as an increase in day tripping from Chippawa to the many attractions in the area.

"We are close by Algonquin Park and towns of Barry's Bay, Combermere, Renfrew and Bancroft for day trips and for the more adventurous there is white water rafting and canoeing along the Madawaska River,'' he said.

Several travel organizations have been promoting the one-tank trip idea including Woodall's camping organization that caters to RV campers and tent campers throughout North America.

"I think the one-tank promotion to reach a specific destination and tour from that destination is an excellent way to save on gas and reflects the future for many RV owners and campers,'' said Dunn.

Chippawa has a pricing policy that rewards RV campers with lower per-day costs the longer they stay. Rates start at $45 per day and can go as low as $40. Seasonal rentals are even lower.

Fishing and boating are the most popular outdoor activities at Chippawa since both the Ottawa Valley and Madawaska Valley are part of the Madawaska River system running from Algonquin Park to the Ottawa River.

Lake Kamaniskeg is one of Ontario's most spectacular lakes with 35 miles of boating opportunities as part of the Madawaska River system.

Chippawa has both lake and river frontage with a 3,000-foot freshwater sand beach.
