Hello and Welcome to A Stones Throw RV Campground Blog
We are pleased to have been listed in the Top 30 Canadian RV Blogs, thanks for your interest everyone!!!
We have not “named” our two washhouses as of yet, currently we refer to the buildings as “North” and “South” washhouse. We take a lot of pride having built these buildings from levelling the earth to everything in-between after Remuda erected our three buildings. By “we” I mean an incredible group of Monner and Lamb family members that threw up walls, mirrors, and really made the buildings come alive, we couldn’t do it out them.
Another hard worker that really deserves a shout out is Boyd Fox of Fox Works Construction. It’s not too often that we get to rub shoulders with contractors that work as hard or as long as these guys. They did a great job with our concrete floors, methodically banged up our walls and efficiently helped us get our ceilings in place. They were a great crew to work and learn from, we certainly look forward to hiring Fox Works Construction again when we need some help.
Education is a key value at A Stones Throw RV Campground. Our future Mini-Farm will be created to help children understand where food REALLY comes from… HINT: it’s not from the Store. The Community Garden will be much the same, a chance for the young and young at heart enjoy green life lessons and the lear to love the little miracles found within your garden.
Shopping Local Pays
Located just 35 minutes and one stop sign away from A Stones Throw RV Campground is the Town of Vulcan, Star Trek fans rejoice! It’s not all about Star Trek but it is all about fun! Whether you are golfing or swimming at the NEW pool Vulcan has lots of things for kids and families to enjoy! Check out the skateboard park or water park while your at it! @vulcanpool
I’ll admit this development has not allowed for much “playing” but from a work perspective, Vulcan his an incredible hub for commerce. We don’t buy anything without getting some quotes, and again and again Vulcan businesses have impressed us with their knowledge and price points. We’d like to give a shout out to three businesses that really stand out and have certainly have helped us along the way.
Wolfe’s Home Hardware @wolfeshh
We’re starting to loose track on how many times we’ve been surprised at Wolfe’s Home Hardwares availability of products and price points. We won’t say how many times it has been better for us to buy in Vulcan than it would be to drive into Calgary or Lethbridge to the bigger stores. They usually beat the big box store prices and they have been more than happy to order in what we require. Meters for pedestals, timers for showers, tools and equipment have all helped make A Stones Throw RV Campground a reality.
We have received such a nice welcome from the Vulcan UFA, they are defiantly the place to go for filling your propane bottles! One way that Vulcan UFA really stands is their new system to help our guests price out decks and garden sheds. They can now punch in the specs of what you want and print out a detailed list of everything you will need and what the cost would be, very convenient and transparent!
Vulcan Furniture Villa @furniturevillavulcan
A business is obviously doing something right when you find out how long Furniture Villa has been around for! Their show room is incredible offering kitchen appliances, BBQ Smokers, Paddle Boards and more! We recently bought a new washer the dryer for the farm house, they had such a great price we ended up buying two! Now the Store/Office has a free laundry room available to guests of A Stones Throw RV Campground!
In Our Next Blog we’ll chat about our Farmer’s Markets which have been a real hit with our guests, our 2 off-leash dog parks, an awesome pet store and what we are working on in the campground next! Thanks for reading!
