We stayed in a rustic cabin. The lake was beautiful and the food was amazing! We only stayed one night and wished we could stay longer. The atmosphere of the lake is inviting and the restaurant had a bar open till midnight. A little something for everyone.

This is such a pretty lake. You can rent motor boats, kayaks, canoes, and paddle boards at the dock. You can also reserve a boat ride to the end of the lake to give you faster start to more interesting hiking trails. Park at the lodge.

Lovely lake but super crowded. We had a great hike to Bench Lakes that was just strenuous enough. The lodge has lunch but we didn't eat there.

Beautiful location, but there's a lot of people there as well. Almost too close to other campers. Kind of nice to have a lodge instead of just a camp host.

It's a beautiful Lake with a Lodge, food, all sort of boats to rent, paddleboards, etc. We rented a motor boat this trip and saw another side of the Lake we never saw before. We recommend this destination for... More

Rooms were adequate. Cabin feel but definitely dated. Spiders in the corners and musty smell. Bathroom was very dated but functional.

A gorgeous spot in the Universe! We were there for a quick getaway early June and was awesome! Weather, food, kayaking and cabin all great! Wish the wifi was better as I had to work some, but it was okay.

The water is pristine, the backdrop of the Sawtooth peaks awesome and beautiful. Everything an alpine lake should be. The first morning rays hit the peaks, when all else is in shadow. Stunning. Against that backdrop we watched an eagle fishing the mirror-still water, which quickly resumed reflecting the trees and mountains after the brief disturbance. We will be going... More
