Riding Mountain National Park

We were camped very close to Riding Mountain National Park, so decided to go explore it. I had visions of rolling hills sparsely speckled with trees. What we found was a series of lakes, with the piece de la resistance being Clear Lake, which was, well, very clear! While dogs couldn't swim at the main beach, which was quite a mad house, there were first-come-first-serve floating docks that you could swim from. We found one and let Avery and J's son go for a dip, while we dipped our toes in the water. It was really peaceful and relaxing out by the little floating docks, away from the crowd.
