If you’re a family with kids and you’re vacationing at Big Rock Resort near June Lake, California, what are some “family-friendly” things to do around the area? Depending on the season, there are several options.
During the summertime, the livin’ is easy when parents, uncles, aunts, grandparents and other caregiving adults take kids to the June Lake swimming beach located on the eastern side of the lake. For those who don’t want to actually get in the water, but still want to enjoy time on the lake, how about renting a fishing boat or kayak or using some other personal watercraft? The lake water is cool year round– and really refreshing on hot summer days.
Come winter many families come to the June Lake area to go skiing and/or snowboarding. With mountain terrain that’s easy and safe for beginners, the June Mountain ski resort is “California’s Family Mountain.” Kids 12 and under get to ski/ride free there– nice, right?
If and when the water is “too cold for swimming,” then June Lake is a great lake for… fishing. The June Lake Marina is a good starting point for a fishing adventure. It’s also where people rent boats, including pontoons which can accommodate families. Meanwhile, the western shores are great for shallow-water fishing in the reeds.
Want to take a scenic drive? You’re in the right place– the June Lake Loop takes you past mountain peaks, lakes, and picture-worthy viewpoints. You’ll want to use Highway 158 and Highway 395 for this fun drive.
How about hiking? If you’ve got kids who can’t handle intense hikes, then take them to the Parker Lake Trail on the north end of the June Lake Loop. It’s an easy, mostly flat trail.
Finally, if you do end up staying at Big Rock Resort– and you should– enjoy peaceful, easygoing times outside your cabin just enjoying nature and being outdoors. Maybe throw a frisbee with each other, play a game of hide and go seek, or make up your own outdoor games for fun.
