Employee Journal: Moon Lake Resort

"I grew up camping in the summers. It felt like we were going every weekend, whether it was for a family reunion, with my parents' friends, or just my small family of four. We didn't really have the money to take a flight anywhere; in fact, I didn't get on a plane until I was a teenager and didn't leave the country until years after that, so camping and time in the Utah mountains were what I knew as vacation."



Sarah, Art Director, culture driver, and every morning coffee-maker at Barebones.





This summer Sarah and her family stayed in a rustic cabin at Moon Lake: a small lake in Utah’s Ashley National Forest nestled on the southern side of the High Uintas. With sandy beaches, hiking trails, fishing, a plethora of wildlife, tales of lake monsters and old mining lore, Moon Lake is a local favorite.

"A simple camping cocktail - mix coconut water with Prairie Organic Cucumber Vodka. It’s so refreshing, easy, and delicious."



"Beyond Vegan Sausages. I can eat these all day. It’s so nice to not miss out on the experience of slow roasting a dog over the fire, even if you eat vegan or looking for meat alternatives. It’s a camping quintessential.

 >> Vegan S’mores Tip - Use a thick cut banana instead of a marshmallow. Blacken it, and then smash it between some fancy non-dairy dark chocolate and grahams. It’s become a favorite amongst my friends."

#1 // "The Backpack Cooler is my all time favorite product. I take it camping, on our inflatable raft when we just want to do some floating, to parties, and even took it to Ireland so that I can have a portable cooler for our adventures. At Moon Lake I’d pack it to the brim with beers and seltzer and head to the beach."

#2 // "Beacon Light. Aside from being perfectly compact, having a carabiner for clipping, and being rechargeable, my favorite feature is the fact that it dims. I’m so particular about the ‘mood’ of an environment. I never want to sacrifice a nice, dim lit dinner!"

#3 // "Enamelware. Every morning I got up, made coffee, and sat on our rustic cabin porch to take in the beauty of my surroundings. I appreciate not just a functional product, but one that has an aesthetic that matches my environment. I felt like the vintage qualities of our enamelware just kind of belonged in our Moon Lake cabin."

#4 // "Wine Tumblers. Let’s face it - I always have some kind of drink in hand. I can go from coffee, to water, to evening beverages seamlessly. The wine tumblers look so much like glass, but are unbreakable. They were perfect for my coconut-vodka camping cocktail."

#5 // "Picnic Knife. I didn’t need any other knife. It slices through everything like butter, and folds and packs nicely. Plus, with a wine and bottle opener, it’s really the ONLY tool you need for wilderness survival. (Well, maybe for rustic camping.)"
