Over the past six months, I have had the pleasure of coming out to work in the town of Castor. Whenever I drive into town, I notice an adorable campground on the left-hand side right before the entrance sign welcoming you.
Run by the Castor Lions club this tiny campground boasts not only quiet and secure camping but a pleasant nature walk through the trails of the sites. Coming into fall we can see the leaves changing colours and the hues of green and yellow on them. Each site has brightly hand painted rocks with fun creatures and numbers identifying each spot. There is a small fire pit on each site and some sites face the road and some nestled in amongst the shade of the trees. Painted blue picnic tables line the front sites and bushes and shrubs line the back site for privacy from the road and traffic.
There are fire bans throughout the county but for a pleasant afternoon walk, or overnight for a rodeo or fair, this would be an ideal spot. The sign at the entrance politely asks for a small overnight fee for campers, and the sun shining down through the trees on a tent would be fabulous to wake up in the morning on a holiday.
