Summers on the lake are every kid’s favorite childhood memory. There are so many activities you can do with your family and friends at the lake that are both safe and fun. We have compiled a list of our favorite summer lake activities to share with you and your family for you to have the perfect summer on the lake.
Kayaking, Paddleboarding, and Canoeing
No matter what size of lake you have, these three activities are great for the summer time. Kayaking, paddleboarding, and canoeing can all be done on all sizes of lakes. They can also all be done alone or with someone else. They are great ways to relax, soak up some sun, and even get a little bit of exercise in.
Picnics and Barbeques
What better way to enjoy summer than with food! Food brings people together and there is nothing better than grilled hamburgers and fresh watermelon. Celebrate the long days with your family and friends by going out to the lake for a picnic or barbeque. These two activities are perfect for all ages and are so much fun. Make sure everyone brings their swimsuits for an after lunch swim!
Boating and Tubing
Boating and tubing go together like salt and pepper. There’s nothing better than feeling the cool breeze in your face while cruising along the waves of the lake. Attach a tube to the back and watch the kids jump over the waves and enjoy the summer fun.
This one is a no brainer – fishing! While fishing is done all year around, the warm summer weather makes it a bit more enjoyable! During summer, you can take your kids and grandkids along and teach them all of your secret fishing tips.
Hiking and Camping
Some of our favorite summer lake activities are hiking and camping. Both put you in touch with nature and allow you to enjoy the great weather. While both hiking and camping can be done away from the lake, they are even more enjoyable when you can take a nice swim afterwards! Bring the family and some s’mores for an even better time.
