Camping at the Lake

Thursday, July 13, 2017

Over the fourth of July weekend, we got to go camping at a lake a couple hours away. It was such a relaxing trip, and we got to be there for 5 days, which is longer than we usually get to camp for!

Now, I'm not as much of a "lake" person as I am just a camping lover, so as long as I get my campfire, I don't mind too much where we go ;) But my husband's family loves the lake, so we all packed up, took the boat and kayaks, and off we went!

The lake we camped at is called Howard Prairie, and it's a great place to go (we usually end up there once every summer) but another nearby lake is where the party was for watching fireworks!

We drove over to Lake of the Woods Resort, which was only about a 15 minute drive away, and I have to admit, I think I liked it a little better. It has more of a rustic "resort" feel to it though, with a lodge, restaurants, live music, and cabin rentals.

We brought some snacks and lawn chairs with us and parked ourselves near the beach area and watched the fireworks show once the sun went down.

It was a fun long-weekend, and a great way to spend the holiday :) Even Lemon had an especially good time, when I wasn't making her work on her "hold," haha!

What about you? Have you had any great camping trips this summer? I'd love to hear about it!

Thanks for stopping by!
