Morning – Crawling Valley Reservoir
For your first stop of the day, visit Crawling Valley Reservoir, a man-made lake located east of the town of Bassano. The lake is known for its camping, fishing, and beautiful beach area. Spend the morning kayaking, fishing, or lazing on the beach. This is also a popular spot for camping, so bring along your camping gear or RV if you plan on staying a night or two.
Mid-morning – Rolling Hills Campground
Later in the morning, check out Rolling Hills Reservoir Campground, a picture-perfect reservoir that’s great for stand up paddleboarding. The crescent shape of the beach protects the reservoir from wind, so the water is the perfect place to try to stand up on the board and dip that long paddle for the first time.
