Scout lake, a local secret, warm water and kid friendly
I love her chunky legs!
It’s always so fun deciding what lake we are going to go, central Oregon has over 100 mountain lakes!
It’s our personal goal to visit them all but this time we picked scout lake because of it warm water and its kid friendly. The lake is small but it is one of the warmest lakes we’ve been to in central Oregon. It’s never too crowded and it is only used for swimming, so bring plenty of sunblock and floaties. They also have camping facilities, however, they don’t allow dogs. But I always see a couple of dogs and no one seems to mind.
The beach wasn’t too sandy but Meadow loves playing with rocks anyways and she got to see a mama duck with her ducklings, she was stoked. Every time she sees ducks she makes this horrific sounding “quack” almost like Donald Duck, it’s hilarious.
Another very kid friendly lake that is also known for its warm waters is cultus lake. It is beautiful and one of my favorite lakes in Bend, Oregon.
