Ecosystems, like porcelain boomerangs and high-wire Charlie Chaplin impersonations, are at once dynamic and delicately balanced. Spend time in an involved environment with today’s Groupon: for $28, you get two nights of tent camping (a $25 value/night) and site registration (a $7 value) at Sooke Potholes Campground in Sooke Potholes Regional Park from The Land Conservancy of British Columbia (a $57 total value).
Sooke Potholes Campground swaddles outdoors enthusiasts of all types in the verdant beauty and gently rocky riversides of the picturesque Sooke River basin. Guests pitch tents at one of 66 fire-pit-equipped campsites, choosing from 60 vehicle-accessible tent beds and six pitching grounds accessible only via bicycle or fleet-footed alpaca. In between setting up tents and flat-screen TVs, wander along the Galloping Goose Regional Trail, swim with a school of friends in one of the many freshwater pools, or enjoy a leisurely picnic while gazing across one of the park's lush vistas.
The river basin supports diverse wildlife, enabling trail wanderers to canoodle with black-tailed deer and otters, or delight at the wondrous wingspans of eagles, owls, and bird-shaped clouds soaring overhead. A nonprofit organization, The Land Conservancy strives to protect the province’s sites of natural, historical, and agricultural significance using eco-friendly practices whenever possible.
