Very peaceful and quiet

Stayed in Maple Syrup and this was an excellent choice. Very quiet and relaxing. Access to row boats a nice touch. Was worried the shared bath house might be an issue, but no problems at all.

This is a one room dining room, with very friendly staff. The night we were there, there was only one woman for all 7 tables. So, the service was slow but since we popped in without a reservation, we were happy to be patient. We found the food average for above-average prices. There was a short Wine by the glass... More

We just celebrated my husband's birthday dining at Packard Lake Lodge. The Lodge is located in the Lakes Basin Region of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Northern California. Friends had highly recommended Packard Lake Lodge. And what a treat it was eating at this small mountain Lodge! We had a gourmet dinner. The salad was great with Packard Lake's own... More

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
