I refer to this beautiful spot as Camp Chawanakee Cove. It's one of the many coves at Shaver Lake, which is located in the Sierra National Forest in California.
Why do I refer to this lovely spot as Camp Chawanakee Cove? Because Camp Chawanakee's Family Camp is located here. Camp Chawanakee, which is run by the Boy Scouts of America, has two separate campgrounds. One is for Boy Scout activities, and the other campground, called Family Camp, is for the general public.
This map, which was created by Southern California Edison, shows the many coves at Shaver Lake. Unfortunately, I don't see a formal name for this beautiful cove on the map below. I've circled it in blue. If you'd like to see this map online, click HERE.
For many years, Camp Chawanakee's Family Camp has been the location of our annual family reunion. We have fun swimming, canoeing, kayaking, gathering around the campfire in the evenings, and just enjoying each other's company.
Here's a view toward the end of the cove and the meadow.
And here's a view of the cove in the evening.
