This morning we woke to beautiful SUNNY skies at Double Lake after a two day total of 8.6 inches of rain! Thankfully, campers who braved the precarious roads yesterday to be here with us all arrived safe and sound. 🌞

We wish everyone a safe and happy Memorial Day Weekend, while we all take time to remember and give thanks to those in service who fought and died for our freedoms so that we could enjoy days such as this.

May God Bless America!
