Today’s post comes from Candace Sampson of Life in Pleasantville. Last summer, we invited Candace to document her adventures in four provincial parks. If you’re new to RVing and thinking of giving it a shot this year, this post is for you.
When first planning a trip with Ontario Parks to learn more about our beautiful provincial parks, I was married with a motorhome and had someone to drive it.
By the time the trip rolled around a few months later, I was down one husband, one motorhome, and one driver (the first and last being the same person). My life had basically become a country song, and I really wasn’t loving the tune.

Today’s post comes to us from Paula Schuck (@inkscrblr), the writer behind Thrifty Mommas Tips, and our next #OPescape content creator to travel around Ontario’s provincial parks in our wrapped RV.
A few weeks ago, I listened to a podcast about the brain and nature’s impact on health, and I learned that time spent in natural surroundings impacts immune function, weight, and blood pressure as well as attention deficit disorder.
The impact of even a three day break when spent outdoors enjoying nature lasts months and leaves you in better health mentally and physically.
After learning that, I was more eager than ever to leave on our first ever RV trip (in celebration of Ontario’s Parks 125th anniversary). I needed to see for myself if it was true. Would the experience change us?

Today’s post comes from Jordana Hart, creator of I Hart Nutrition. Jordana is one of six content creators we invited to document and share their Ontario Parks RV experience in a custom-wrapped RV as part of this year’s OP125 celebrations.
If I am being honest, while I love nature and love being outdoors, I definitely don’t consider myself to be the camping type. So needless to say, this type of experience was definitely outside of my comfort zone, but one I just couldn’t turn down.
I think the idea of being on an RV is what really convinced me. I had never stepped foot into an RV before, and I’m all about new adventures.
