I have visited Lake of the Clouds main overlook on numerous occasions, winter, fall and summer, each season has its distinctive look, my favorite is fall and winter. Nice way to spend time with family and relax enjoying breath taking views over the Lake of the Clouds. During the summer time (when it can be accessed by the car) there... More

Loved it up there. Thankfully, it was an easy walk for me because I have no cartilage in my knee. I was concerned about it, but with my brace, there was no problem at all. And getting up there was well worth it.

An amazing overlook to a gorgeous lake in the Porkies, that is incredibly easy to get to, and well worth a trip.

The overlook is easily accessible and offers up the most amazing views of the Porkies. You see the rock escarpment and just miles of green forests and then there is the beautiful Lake in the Clouds. It is not the highest lake in the park, but it is serene and beautiful. There are trail that take you close to the... More

Simply spectacular in autumn. Stunning views. Fresh, crisp air. By the time we climbed back into the car, we were pleasantly cold. So bracing! Go visit!

We paid $9.00 for our vehicle to enter to see this. It was worth every single penny! I lost count at how many times my breath was taken away by the most beautiful sights. Clean, educational and absolutely AMAZING!

The view is awesome, you can see 20+ miles from the overlook and the walk from the parking area is an easy uphill walk, but the wheelchair accessible trail is better.

Some places never look as good in person as they do in the " Chamber of Commerce" photos. Lake of the Clouds does. In fact, on a cold, foggy, drizzly Oct 4 morning, this was one of the prettiest views I've seen anywhere. Easy walk from parking lot to overlook, scenic lakeside drive to get there. Absolutely gorgeous.

The area has so many beautiful sights around every corner, it's hard to rate them. You can see for miles. Easy to get to, as well. You don not have to be an experience hiker to enjoy this vista!
