We found the rustic timber lodge by the lake. Reservations are suggested. My husband had the tender steak and we shared a great wine. I had the Seared Salmon with Berry Compote. It was hot and tender with cool and sweet topping. I have never had that before, but it was the perfect combination!

Full disclosure. We were only here for a wedding. The wedding was performed on a rock above the lake and the lodge. It was one of the most beautiful weddings I have been to and there were many skeptics. But loved the feel of the lodge tucked in behind Packer Lake. I would like to go back...

Nice drive up Gold Lake Road to cabin resort. Changed hands in 2012 due to death of previous owner. Menu changed a little. Still a favorite

To start, the new Owners Jeff and Joan Smith have put their hearts, and a pile of effort, into this Summer's food and staff...The results are spectacular! My Family and I ate several delicious meals during our recent annual vacation at Packer Lake Lodge. The Dinner menu covers a broad range of appetites and prices. Our favorites were the Lamb... More

This is a great, old- fashion fishing lodge. The vintage 1921 log cabin makes a great little restaurant. The atmosphere is casual but the dining is fine. We ordered the salmon, which was superb, and the ribs, which were pretty good. The Caesar salad is amazing, and the mudpie was really delicious. Yum.

I have eaten at this facility several times in the past with the former owners. In the past the price was about double what you would pay in the city and the portions were quite austere but you could almost get enough to satisfy your appetite in a hiking and camping area. The new owner assumes he can fill in... More

Spagetti nite and Bingo on Wednesdays. Often sold out so call ahead, or make areservation and spend the week. On Paker Lake, fish and hike. This at the base of the Sierra Buttes. Fun and a little quirky.

The fresh fish here is excellent, they even cook your catch! Salads and BBQ ribs also great. Wine list very good for such a small operation.

This is a charming and rustic restaurant set on a beautiful lake a couple of miles off of Lakes Basin Road. We got the impression that most diners were lodge guests staying in the various cabins on the property, but we didn't have any problem getting a table early in the evening. You can enjoy a cocktail or glass of... More
