While my parents were in town we decided to explore. We went to Applegate lake, which was fun and I think I'd only been one other time. It's only 30 minutes from home!
We found a cool little creek behind the lake to eat lunch at
They also had a day use area where you can pay $5 for the whole day and swim or soak up the sun! It was nice and grassy and lots of water to swim in! Apparently the lake has a 10 mph speed limit, which is nice because then you can just go out and float or fish or whatever you want to do without getting run over by a fast boat!
