What’s Up in Gay Camping This Week? Oct 14-16, 2022

by | Oct 14, 2022 | Gay Camping, This Week in Gay Camping | 0 comments

You can go to a gay campground any day and have a blast, but theme weekends can take your gay camping experience over the top. Come back every week for This Weekend in Gay Camping with Benji and Brendon.

Here’s a taste of what’s happening this week in gay camping! Most gay campgrounds have theme weekends and parties to accompany them. You can choose to go camping and not partake in any parties. We suggest not taking the theme too literally – unless you want to!

Which theme weekend should you choose? Themes only define the activities, but don’t define the people who will be there. You’ll have a great time no matter what which you choose!

Here’s what’s up this week in gay camping:

Cactus Canyon
Ava, Missouri (in the Ozarks)
Chili Cookoff and Haunted Maze

This weekend, grab your favorite meat (or vegan equivalent) and cook up your favorite chili recipe at the annual Cactus Canyon Campground Chili Cook-Off for Campers. Bring your finished chili to the cafe on Saturday for a chance at a first, second, or third place prize. If you aren’t into making your own chili, that’s OK! Bring a side dish to complement all the chilis along with your appetite.

Then, head out with all your Cactus Canyon Campground new friends to the Monster Corn Maze and Haunted House Adventure!

Speaking of chili cookouts, we took part in the annual tradition at Shadow Falls gay campground in British Columbia, Canada. We didn’t win, but had a blast trying. Check out this video of all the fun!
