A junk themed campsite.
Me – “So, it’s gonna be nice for a week and I don’t have to work. What do you want to do?”
Son – “Go camping at Harrison.”
Me – “Yeah, me too, but we should really stay home…”
But I started itching for a beach. Our last camping trip had a pool and I needed a beach fix. So, you know.. I just called a place or two to see if there was anything avail. AND THERE WAS. But only at a place we hadn’t frequented before.
Then I thought of all my favorite haunts along the way to this place and THAT. WAS. IT. We had the trailer repacked in 2 hours and head out that night and arrived in the dark. 🙂
And when we woke up the next AM, I screamed to the point of embarrassing my son. I thought I was in JUNK HEAVEN. A junk themed campsite this was.
A junk themed campsite tour
This is the front office to Harrison Springs Camping and RV Park. It’s a cedar shaked two story cottage with a wrap around veranda.
The resident greeter was on duty full time dishing out plenty of free smiles.
Now THIS is a laundry tub! WANT. Bet I could make this…
The coolest dish washing station
Tell me this isn’t the coolest dishwashing station EVER.
Our camping adventure was so sudden, this is where I quickly set up SNS 96. We had to set the laptop on the picnic table for the wi fi to kick in.
Sorry about the repeat features of my stuff this past weekend. I had plans to do new stuff until we ran out the door. My son was BEGGING me to get offline so we could start camping already but I couldn’t leave you completely hanging… I think I got that post up within 10 minutes. 🙂
And then we unplugged for the rest of the trip.
The campsite had pretty private forest like sites, despite how close in proximity they were to each other.
Our campsite had a view of a pond with ducks galore, graced with a tire swing on a big ol’ tree. It was breathtaking.
But when my eyes spotted a repeated theme throughout the site, I squealed and darted for the camera.
The rusty bikes campsite feature!
A junk themed campsite that was made just for me! Or so it seemed.
The theme was rusty crusty old bikes! They were everywhere. I honestly believe I held my breath until I captured everything I desired. This place was a photographer’s dream.
There were also hordes of bird nests in the funkiest places as well as hidden birdhouses. It was like playing a game of Where’s Waldo? I ADORE how they left nature just be.
And then there was the beach. We visited constantly!
And finally dusk.
Harrison is a wonderful place to camp!
And even brought our hotdogs and camp stove and stayed until the stars shone one night. It was magnificent.
Visiting a junk themed campsite at Harrison Hot Springs was like coming home.
But there really is no place like our home. And I think we’re staying put for the rest of summer this time.
Well… maybe. 🙂
Harrison Springs Camping and RV Park is located at 740 Hot Springs Road, Harrison Hot Springs, BC. 604 796-8900. I was not compensated for featuring this place. We just really enjoyed our stay and will be back!

What a great place……very relaxing I’m sure.
You must have been giddy with delight at that campground. Enjoy, your boy looks pretty darn happy to be there!
What a cool campground. I am looking for a vintage camper, so we can take to the road and find neat places like these!
What an awesome place!! I would have had a really hard time not snapping pictures of all of those cool things and blogging too ~
It looks like your son is in heaven!
It’s like Funky Junk heaven. Lots of rust, lazy dogs and nature. Perfection. Lisa~
Love the pics! My husband and I were at Bridal Falls on the weekend. Yesterday, before heading home, took a drive to Harrison to check out the campsites, etc. Absolutely love it there! Its beautiful. We saw a couple of campsites we were interested in and the one you stayed at was one of them, so your pictures are very helpful! Sounds like you had a great weekend…we sure did. The weather was fabulous!! Lesa
What fun,WOW!!! I am so jealous….love the hood ornament on that bike, love all the bikes and that is so darn cool. Your son is so darn cute and he looks like he was really having fun. That is a beautiful place. I bet it will be hard to stay
home after that adventure.
What a fantastic campground. And your shots of the water are so beautiful! I’m glad your weather has improved too. Pamela
Oh man, what a beautiful place. Jealous doesn’t even describe how I feel right now! My husband and I have been wanting an RV, this just seals the deal!!
Now, If only there were anything GREEN in Texas right now???
so donna aren’t you glad you didn’t give on camping this year ? ;). what an adventure. friend of mine said ” don’t let a bad thing ruin your weekend cause 1 or 2 things will always go wrong” we thought this was brilliant. we have camped for over 30 yrs and last week end was the 1st time critters got into our food box. they ate all the thin buns and started on the bagels.we laughed and laughed wondering what that did to thier gi system ;).
LOVE the sink…**inspiration** !!!
and i agree, it was funky junk heaven…very cool.
glad you had a great week there.
What a fascinating place!!! Thank you so much for sharing your fun weekend…l loved the “original and fun” decor. I especially appreciate the sink/laundry tub picture. I have one just like that in my yard, upside down because it is cast iron and very heavy I couldn’t figure out what to do with it. Now I know. Thank you!
would love to be there right now myself. beautiful!
Love that house!!
That view was incredible and the house just beautiful. Gotta love summer at the beach.(or what is left of it)
