Radio Free Camping!

There is nothing as soothing and peaceful as a night in a tent in the woods. The song of nature is pure bliss; the rustle of trees in the winds, the melody of frogs, the back and forth chatter of barred owls, rand perhaps the call of a loon from the shoreline.  And then--the blare of a camper's radio.

I was delighted to discover that on the Hilltop Campground of Ontario's  Pancake Bay Provincial Park, an incredibly beautiful park that hugs part of the eastern shore of Lake Superior, a radio free camping zone has been established.  Kudos to Ontario Parks!

Love it! There is a time and a place for a radio in a campground (think KOA). However, I hate having my peace disturbed by the radio. I remember being at the Pinery and wanting to bail out due to the non-stop radio play.

I know how you feel Slade. Sadly, so many seem to need their radios and portable TV's while camping. Hopefully this trend of radio-free campgrounds will spread like a wildfire in high winds! Jonathan

The last time we camped we didn't have any issues with radios but I can completely appreciate having a place like this available. We'll have to add this location to our list of places to visit.
