Stewart Lake County Park

Difficulty: EASY     Cost: FREE

David and I planned on a quick trip to the Mount Horeb Family Aquatic Center (which is an awesome pool), but when we arrived today we were sad to see it closed for the season. It's really hard to believe summer is already nearing it's end.

I racked my brain for somewhere nearby, which David would enjoy. I remembered a small park just outside Mt. Horeb, which I've passed several times on my way to a client's home. I've never stopped before today, but I at least knew there was a playground.

We arrived at Stewart Lake County Park and headed to the playground. After a while playing on the jungle gym, we made our way down to the water. There's a beach! It's a beautiful spot, shallow water, lots of sand and pretty clean. It was such an incredible surprise and David was happy to get his time in the water! Outside of a couple other families, we had the place to ourselves.

This is worth a trip! Bring your SUP board, Kayak or Canoe and venture out a little deeper. When you get hungry, you can head back into beautiful Mt. Horeb, walk main street and find a great place to eat.

David had a blast!
