  1. Dude I love camping — this makes me wanna get back out there and build a fire and sleep under the stars.

  2. don't forget its $100 a day because camping is not free on Queen Land 😀
    oh, you thought we were free?

    as free as cityTV's viewpoint and agenda.


  3. Only reason I watched was to see if they'd mention tick bite prevention. Nope… Southern Ontario is completely overrun with these disease carrying parasites now, and nothing is mentioned of them. Come on…

  4. Coleman Glamping commercial.
    The broken branch above your tent is called a "widow maker".
    Good luck with the skeeters
