Daisy finds some miniature daisies.


After walking Daisy one last time with her canine friends, we fueled up at the RV park’s diesel pumps (at a discounted good price for having stayed there). We left for the "unknown", perhaps a roadside pull off. This portion of the highway was familiar to us so there were no surprises traveling along Marsh Lake.

We did not see any large pull outs in time to pull off, so I finally looked in the Milepost and found a campground listed coming up soon along the highway, stopping just short of Watson Lake at "Baby Nugget RV Park". It was a Roadhouse with a cafe and gift shop. We were delighted to see that the Military Caravan (that we met in Whitehorse) was also camped there.

It was a full hook up park with 50amp which we needed for this hot day. The manager was very chatty and funny so I neglected to ask the price, just signed the slip as we chatted, and then looked at it - OMG $69 ($54.75 USD). This place was the most expensive place we have stayed, I’ll have to be more careful choosing parks in the future. I thought he was going to give us a Good Sam discount because he had a sign and I told him we were Good Sam members. But since we paid with a credit card, we didn’t get the discount which was only allowed on Canadian Cash (which we were low on).

Taking a walk around, we saw how large this RV park is. The area we were parked included a lot of individuals like us plus the “Military Caravan” and another large area filled with another caravan.
