There’s enough room for everyone to sit around and hang out. We think this is the perfect place to curl up on the couch and read a book.

Duncan Lake is a quiet, serene spot that makes for some of the best paddling, so make sure to bring some gear.

When the sun goes down and it gets chilly outside, put on a roaring fire in the wood-burning oven.
