I got invited to tag along on a group trip to Weaver Lake South Group Site, so I drove up by myself on Monday and spent two glorious nights out of cell service. Located off of West Harrison FSR (one of my favourite places to drive), Weaver Lake is accessible by 4×4 vehicles only.
I arrived, set up my tent and my little kitchen table and sat down in the shade to relax! It felt a little bit strange to only have myself to care for…. But easier to relax!
Taco Tuesday was a great success, I made nachos and two others did a taco bar! We all roamed through the stations sampling the deliciousness of dinner and I will definitely be recommending Taco Tuesday for future group trips!
The group site has some amenities like an outhouse – big enough to be used as a change room, with a small mirror and hooks to hang things. There was a group fire pit area with benches (that we didn’t use due to fire ban) and a covered area with picnic tables that would be great on a rainy day.
There was also a trail down to this small creek, which was so tranquil and beautiful! The trees provided shade and it was so much cooler down there. We brought our camping chairs and put our feet in the water for awhile, it was so relaxing.
The sunsets here were also gorgeous. I am an early riser and a few of my walks to the outhouse in the early morning I wished I had my camera. The pinks and purples in the sky were beautiful. No sounds of other people, generators, or anyone else to worry about outside of our group was also a definite plus.
The stars were so bright at night, I stayed up much later than usual just enjoying the bright stars against the inky dark sky.
The photos do it no justice, but being in the mountains at this gorgeous lake was so good for the soul. I was too busy floating or swimming to get any photos of the lake unfortunately, but I do recommend this rec site for anyone with a 4×4 to get to it!
There are two group sites and everyone said the South Group Site was less ideal than the North Group Site they had stayed at previously. I had no comparison and thought it was great for group camping and not having to worry about bothering other people.
For more information on Weaver Lake Camping, check it out Here! There is a regular campground with single and double sites, as well as the two separate group sites. I definitely plan to go again as it was a beautiful spot. As with all Rec Sites though, there is no running water and you are required to pack out your garbage.
As always, thank you for reading! Keep on adventuring and don’t be afraid to break out of your comfort zone!
