Our youngest kiddo, age 7, requested a camping trip to Lake Siskiyou for his birthday this year.
We had a great weekend! Lake Siskiyou Campground is one of my most favorite camping places ever.
The lake is so serene and Mt. Shasta in the backdrop is beautifully majestic.
Added bonuses: the rental shack on the beach was open, the playground was open, there were fun hiking/biking trails that were open, *the outdoor theater was showing movies, *the arcade was open, campfires were allowed in fire pits, and hanging hammocks was A-ok as well. How delightfully normal.
*For anyone who disapproves of arcades and movies while camping, it was a birthday celebration 🎉 so exceptions were made.
It rained Friday evening shortly after we arrived. We hadn’t been in a thunder storm in awhile so we rather enjoyed it and ate dinner outside under the awning. I even went out in the rain to take a photo just for you!
We rented kayaks on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. We also borrowed inflatable kayaks from our friends/neighbors. We were delighted to do a side by side comparison because we were considering purchasing kayaks of some sort. For now, I think just renting them is our best option.
We tried using Reece’s peanut butter cups in our s’mores and I highly recommend this idea. I got the idea from whoever put the Reece’s peanut butter cups on the end-cap display with the chocolate, graham crackers and marshmallows at Winco. Genius!
I used my plant identification app to find the name of this flower.
And no trip to Mount Shasta is complete without a visit to the headwaters to fill up a water bottle or three.
We also got a new camping book for our RV library.
As always, thank you for coming along and reading about our adventure!
