Family trip to Lake Cuyamaca

Our Trip to Lake Cuyamaca

Lake Cuyamaca - boy in lake- ducks- family adventure


What a beautiful nature adventure just 50 miles east of San Diego. Our boys had a blast watching the ducks, geese, coyote, and deer. Yes, there is a coyote the locals call “the shy coyote” and true to his name he saw us and ran off to hide.

My boys fed the ducks and geese, climbed trees, hiked some trails, threw rocks into the lake, and ran around up and down the pier.  Who says fun family adventures have to be costly? We ate lunch at our loca In-and-Out before heading there and then had dinner at home.

When (not if, but when) we vist Lake Cuyamaca again, I’ll be sure to pack us a picnic, enjoy rowing a boat with the family, and again take in all the beauty that beckons you to come again.

We are on a mission to rediscover our city and parks nearby one family adventure at a time. Please share with us a trip you think we should take.

My Creative Corner

This room is my craft room and it is my little creative corner of my world. Inspiration is expressed through art, scrapbooking, sewing, etc. I would like to welcome you into my little world.
