The lake was super high this year, so there were only two beaches, one on the north end and one on the south. You had to get there early enough in the day or they would turn you away. There were maybe 50 parking spots at best! The water was not as blue and clear, and the beach was a bit muddy at the edge, but the girls still had a great time playing.
We did break down and rent a boat for a few hours on Saturday. Unfortunately the only time that they had left was from 9-11am. Up there that put us at 64 degrees. But the girls had the time of their lives, even scardy cat Ash!
Then we drove to Randolph, where there is "the smallest gift shop" It literally looks to be about the size of a port o potty. Of course it was closed, so we went next door to a little Gifts of the West shop. Because what is a vacation without a souvenir!
