Camper of the Week:
For the past couple years, the Boehm family has been coming to the Medford City Park Campground for the Fourth of July weekend. This year was no exception as the family visited Medford from July 1 to July 5. Rick and Kary Boehm were joined by two of their sons, Connor and Drew, as well as their two pet poodles, Barry and Wally.
They said that they like that the City Park Campground was clean, friendly, and right in the middle of the city so they can walk and bike to many places in the area. The family spent their time enjoying the holiday festivities, including watching the fireworks. They also went biking and kayaking in the beautiful weather the weekend provided.
The family used to live in the Medford area for three years before moving four years ago back to North Dakota where they are originally from. The family has been traveling back from Bismarck to enjoy everything they loved about the area, including seeing old friends, eating at their favorite local restaurants, and getting ice cream at Moosie’s.
On Sunday, the family went kayaking at Chelsea Lake where their youngest, Drew, accidentally tipped his kayak over. They had a difficult time getting Drew back into the kayak and back to the shore, so two young men who were also at the lake volunteered to take their kayaks and help bring Drew back to shore. Rick said that this kind of helpfulness and friendliness is why Medford is a great place to live and raise a family.
The Medford City Park Campground offers nine campsites along the Millpond on Centennial Parkway. Electric and water hookup is available throughout all the sites. These campsites consist of 40 foot and 36 foot slab stalls to park campers on, along with a picnic table and trash bin. Reservations are not accepted.
