Fort Buenaventura is a secluded grove of trees just out side of Ogden, about 10 minutes from our house. The plan was to go canoeing on the lake and enjoy the warm sunny day. When we got there we paid the entrance fee at the visitors center and rented a canoe for an hour. They told us everything we needed for canoeing was just behind the visitors center. And when we went behind to get our gear we realized that even the lake (puddle) was hidden behind this building. It wasn't a lot of space for canoeing but it was still a lot of fun. It would be a great place for younger kids to practice canoeing in a completely non threatening environment.
This is why we were extra careful not to tip the canoe, even though it was a hot day. The water was horribly disgusting. Luckily we never got it on us.
You can rent those teepee's for $15 a night. Could be a fun camping adventure, and you wouldn't have to set up your tent.
By the end of the hour we became quite good at our steering together to get where we wanted to go. It really was a fun Saturday afternoon trip, and we were practically the only ones there.
