“Nice location yet too close to highway”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

This lake is nice for a picnic but tends to be a bit close to the highway.Would be nice if they had more picnic benches in the area too. good though when the weather is nice.

“Fabulous at sunrise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

This lake gives gorgeous reflections of the mountains at sunrise. The lake is very calm at that time, but like all lakes the calm goes away about 30-40 minutes after sunrise. Get there early; you will likely have it all to yourself!

“Excellent if you like photography”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Herbert Lake took my breath away which was quite unexpected after all the fabulous lakes we saw. It's a photographer's dream.
The day we visited it was perfectly still which gave the most stunning mirror images of the sky, mountains and trees in the water. Please take the time to stop as you pass.

“peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Stunning view, and calm lake. Would have like to pitch a tent and next time would bring a dinghy just to coast and enjoy the peace and quiet, as some were doing

“Great photo op”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

this isn't a long stop and it's on your way to other beautiful areas... but take the 10 minutes and stop, short walk and take your photo... it is beautiful.
