Detroit Lake still has something to offer you and your family!
The Upper Arm Day Use Area is a gem of a park
just north of Detroit on Breitenbush Road.
One large covered shelter is available. Parking is available,
but fills to capacity by Noon on busy days. Our family chose a rocky outcrop up the river for our picnic. We waved to boater making their way up the river. We peered over the edge of the rocks and watched fish swim past in the crystal clear water. And then…. we dared Daddy to jump in.
but he had such fun that he jumped again!
Never wanting to be left out of the fun –
soon our five year old jumped in.
was so proud of himself that I too was inspired.
Simply said: The boys had not adequately described the temperature of the Brietenbush River. I jumped in unaware that the cold would take my breath away...
or at least some of my breath …
the breath not needed for screaming.
The boys doubled over in laughter at their silly Mom
while my husband helped me onto the rocks –
also unable to stifle his laughter.
Cold as it was… I have to admit:
That kind of family summer fun is worth every goose bump.
