Merritt, B.C. things to do offers more than just camping! Moonshadows RV Park and Campground is much more than a campground! It is a spectacular destination family camping experience with lots of things to do for both visitors and locals. Campground manager Melvina White says, “ We want to invite the locals to come and enjoy out gorgeous grounds. Also, we are planning events throughout the year to entice everyone.” What better way to enjoy Merritt, B.C. things to do?
This year Moonshadows RV Park and Campground hosted the first Annual pumpkin walk and did we have fun! On Halloween weekend although it was freezing cold we lit up the trails with carved pumpkins. Many community members contributed their own pumpkins; more pumpkins were donated from the pumpkin carving contest at Merritt’s downtown Halloween event and the rest were carved by the Moonshadows staff. Everyone enjoyed participating in the lighting ceremony, placing the pumpkins and walking the lit paths. We warmed our chilly toes afterward by roasting wieners and s’mores over a big bonfire. This was only the first of many community events that Melvina will be host at the campground. Check out things to do in Merritt BC.
