So after a few laps around the lake we decided to set up camp. We pitched the tent right on the shore of the lake. It was great. We ate sandwiches and drank pop for dinner. As the night went along the wind really picked up, but to be in the tent was as if I were on my couch at home watching TV. It was so comfortable. We sat up all night talking our minds, laughing; and planning the next trip.
When morning came the wind was still gusting, but the kayak was to inviting. We went out on the kayak all day. We caught a few fish and fried them up on my new stove. After kayaking we put on our hiking shoes and went for a good 2 to 3 mile hike up the mountain. We saw a lot of wildlife; deer, hawks, eagles, and rodents. When we got back to the camp we were greeted by two more groups of paddlers, who were very nice and informative as to many other kayaking sites.
As we packed up camp our camping neighbors came and talked to us. It was a great atmosphere to be in. My brother and I had a great time at Lake Cleveland. We will have many stories to share with everyone about Lake Cleveland. The kayaking, camping, hiking and feel of the place was great I highly recommend this destination.
