Camping Trip #4: Carter Lake

This past weekend we drove up to Carter Lake which isn't too far from our house, but we had never been there before. We camped at Eagle Campground site E30 and when we first got there I was a bit disappointed that it wasn't on the lake....and our site had a road running right behind it. But it turned out to be a great campground with really clean bathrooms/showers right by our site. And we fell in love with Carter Lake and have already started planning to get a boat next year so we can take the kids out on the lake :)

Lily loves strawberries

Jack and Lily found a rock that was a perfect chair for them
The only problem with this campground were the cactuses. They were everywhere, so if you weren't on a walking path you had to be really careful. Like when Jack went to pee behind a tree barefoot... not a good idea
Thankfully I had my emergency medical kit with a handy pair of splinter removers so he was all fixed up in no time
We took the kids to play at the Carter Lake swim beach and it was amazing.
I loved the sandy beaches and the water felt pretty clean (unlike some beaches where you feel like you are swimming in stale, murky water)

Jack and Lily love camping and they do a great job of getting along when we are camping

We loved this campground and this lake. It was nice that it was fairly close to home too. We will definitely be coming back here.
