Growing up, I always heard about Fife Lake. My dad talked about the summers they spent there fishing and my grandpa would talk about it and how he grew up going there. I, however, have never seen the lake. I knew next to nothing about it besides that my dad’s family seemed to go there often in their youth. Through research, I found out it’s where my great-grandma spent a lot of her time because her dad lived there. Hence why my grandpa and dad grew up going there quite often. I found some pictures of the place in my chest as well.
This man was the main reason why everyone went to Fife Lake! He moved up there in the early 1940’s where he stayed until he died in 1959. It was always a place talked to me with great enthusiasm so I can imagine it was a wonderful place to be.

Oddly, we didn’t do a lot of camping in my immediate family (only once). Both my dad and mom grew up with having a place to go “up north” but we never did that as a family. Growing up, it didn’t seem such a big deal but now that I can see how much they did when they were younger, I often wonder why we didn’t.
