There’s nothing more quintessentially summer than spending some time at the lake. Whether you’re renting an Airbnb with your besties or getting the fam together for a lake house reunion, you know that some real fun in the sun is about to happen. For all the lake adventures you have planned, Insta-worthy moments will arise. Before you post, make sure to put some real thought into those Instagram captions for the lake so your memories don’t just float on by.

A day at the lake means you’ll walk away with at least one self with an inflatable float. If you’ve got something larger like FUNBOY's Disco Dome Pool Float, you could even make it a group pic with your whole crew. There’s also the possibility of a few BBQ foodie pics, tubing action shots, sunset snaps, and lake hair pics from your weekend getaway. With so many memories on your phone, you’ll feel the need to share them right away, and having some lake quotes will make posting so much easier. If you can't find the words to express how you feel on your own, you could always play around with a few of these 30 lake Instagram captions.

This may be the first time you’re getting to spend some quality time with your friends or fam in more than a year, so don’t be glued to your phone too much. Just pair your lake day photo dump with whatever lake captions float your boat, and you’ll be ready to get back to a reel good time.
