If you enjoy good old fashioned American car camping and you’ve not had the chance to visit Falling Leaf Lake, we highly recommend it. We went there on the annual DCCNS camping trip and it was a fun and memorable trip. It’s just a short 2 hour drive to this gorgeous and surprising warm lake with big shaded campsites and really fun creek for the kids to play and explore in. You’ll be required to confront your deadly fear of bears – they come twice their normal size from snacking on campers marshmallows and Cheetos all day. We saw five bears and a friend of ours turned around one day to find one a few feet from her casually enjoying all the contents of her bear box.
