    Family Camp at Fred Henne

    by momof8, almost 2 years ago

    I am a mother of 6, 8 really. My sister and I have always lived together and I have helped raise her 2 sons. We are regular campers at Fred Henne. There isn't just one story I can write about because there are too many to just chose one. Fred Henne is like a home away from home for us. We love playing at the beach watching the planes come in and out of Yellowknife. We love walking up the rocky hills in many sites (site 25 is our family favourite) in the darker summer nights to get a great... Continue reading

    A nice walk on Seagull Island at the Hay River Territorial Park

    by SharpeFamily , almost 2 years ago

    We had a nice evening walk on Seagull Island at the Hay River Territorial Park this past weekend. It was a bit windy and brisk feeling like early Fall, but the clear sky and the remaining sun of the day made the scenery absolutely gorgeous. The beach was quiet with just a few dog walkers.

    Not necessarily a camping story

    by John Colford, almost 2 years ago

    I am not a camper, in fact not really a fan of camping, but did use your facilities at Fred Henne Campground last winter.  I enjoy cross country skiing and the road system through the park is perfect for my skill level.  The Campground is very quiet except for the odd snowmobiler and fox. The views throughout the Campground are spectacular especially on the upper road system.  It seems unfortunate that we have this facility but it is not promoted for use for most of the year.  I am positive with some ingenuity a program could be developed for those...

    late night fires

    by heatheratkins, almost 2 years ago

    When staying at the hay river campgrounds for a few baseball tournaments throughout the summer, we ventured to the boardwalk, which was directly across from our site, to ejoy the nice view from the sky, lake and driftwood upon the beach to accompany the fire and s'mores we had. it was so nice to listen to the soothing sounds of the waves crashing along the shore as well as the crackling of the firewood as it burned.
