We went to Brookings first for family camp and loved hanging out with friends, going to the coolest petting zoo and hanging out at the beach. Our trip just ended too quickly so we planned another long weekend to visit some more sites in Oregon. We always drive by the sign that says Crater Lake this way and never went. We finally got to see it and it was worth it! A truly amazing site, however you would freeze to death if you tried to swim in it so we continued our road trip to see the Cascade Lakes of Oregon. We were not disappointed and found the perfect camping spot for our little crew right on the Deschutes River!
