ED. Another blog written by Sharon…
Prior to picking up the grandkids for the weekend stay at Lake Pointe RV resort we asked them what they especially wanted to do at their first ever camping trip in our RV. They quickly provided a list of must-haves for the trip. First on the list was riding in the bus and seeing how we set up camp. Next they wanted to “drive” the bus and sleep in it overnight. And most certainly we had to roast marshmallows. Armed with our list and a full complement of kid supplies freshly purchased from HEB (our favorite grocery store), we felt fully prepared for our stay at Lake Pointe RV Resort in Canyon Lake Texas. The smiles on their faces during the drive were priceless.
Upon arrival at Lake Pointe RV Resort, we were all in awe of the scenic lake views and the kid friendliness of the park. The kids especially liked seeing the playground and pool areas. We set up camp then let them pretend to drive the bus and headed out to explore the park. The trail to the Lake offered many delights for the kids: butterflies, deer, caterpillars, blackberries to pick and rocks to toss in the lake. Dinners ended with roasted marshmallow smores for dessert one night and homemade cupcakes the next night.
This park was ideal for entertaining our grandkids. The playground had two swing sets, a play house for toddlers and a larger climbable playhouse for older kids. Scattered through the playground were riding toys and a large rock to climb on. Thankfully there were also benches and bench swings for the adults to sit on while watching the children play. There were lots of deer in and around the park which always provided additional entertainment.
The clubhouse offered a huge library of books and movies to borrow as well as a pool table and fitness room. The office building also housed a full kitchen for group entertaining as well as a beautiful deck and garden overlooking the two pools and the beautiful blue Canyon Lake. We spent time at the family pool one afternoon (even though the water was a little chilly). Along with trips to the pool and playground, we enjoyed playing kickball, blowing bubbles with bubble stuff, etc. at our campsite.
On the last day we had a wonderful surprise visit from dear friends and their kids making for a great afternoon of play for the kids and fun filled conversation for the adults. It was definitely an action packed weekend. Having checked off all items on the list the kids provided, we felt our first camping trip with them was a smashing success. Not once did the kids seem homesick at all. They were precious and fun to be around but their energy level far exceeded ours, so taking them back home was a bit of a relief too.
