Read everyone's review and wanted to add my 50 cents It has been a few years before despite my date. Noticed that someone said bugs and springtime/early summer visits are very buggy-extra strong repellent may not defend you. My son managed to rack up an amazing amount bug bites. Great spot for training Boy Scouts which I was doing. Always... More

My brother loaned us a book with a teeny map, and some directions. A real trail map would have been a lot better. None were available at the parking area, but I did see someone who had one later. We were there for 5 hours (I hike slowly) on a holiday weekend and saw perhaps a dozen people and four... More

The Caribou Wilderness has a network of easy walking trails. I have ridden my horse in this are many time. The trails are poorly maintained, which can be a problem for horses. Also, bring plenty of mosquito repellant, particularly early in the year. Fishing is good in the high lakes. I'm not sure if Fish and Games stocks them anymore.... More

This lake is a "best kept secret". It is small but serene, like a miniature Lake Tahoe. It is so peaceful there, and a perfect place for a day of kayaking and BBQ. My husband and I take our boys there a few times every summer!

Lot's of bugs, hard to find campsites, and horse manure everywhere. There are much better places to hike and camp in the area. I would avoid Caribou.

Good hiking, spectacular scenery that is far enough off the beaten path that it is never crowded.

I went on a 9 day camping trip which consisted of a 50 mile hike with Troop 315 of Middletown, Ca. I had such a great time camping out there. My troop and I went swimming at the lakes saw a baby black bear and climbed to the top of the old volcano and into the center. I miss those... More
