Old-time summer pleasures feel new again at Cascade Lake, where you can rent paddle boats or kayaks and go fishing along the dock. Kids run wild here, the hardiest souls splashing in the chilly water and others digging in the small strip of sand, playing on the jungle gym, or along the grass. Even the moderate Cascade Lake Loop hike is well suited to families at about 2.5 miles round trip. For a sweet treat, the Sugar Shack obliges with ice cream sourced from Lopez Island Creamery. (Psst: Clever Cow Creamery in Eastsound also serves up their flavors and for more reasonable prices.)
