“If you like to paddle, swim, hike or backpack. This is the place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Its all beautiful and mostly unspoiled and lightly traveled. We have paddled on many of the smaller lakes and find many to be breathtaking natural granite cirques.

“Gorgeous Alpine Lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Great fishing, beautiful scenery, tranquil beaches under the pines and some hiking on top of that. Great for jet skis and boats.

“So nice I hate to tell you about it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

I love everything about the area. You can take short hikes and see 5 lakes or so. Check out Sardine Lake area, Frazer falls, Lakes Basin campground, hiking trails.

“gorgeous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

A gorgeous lake, with beautiful backdrops. Good for sailing, kayaking or canoeing. Not really big enough to take power boats on. Very cold for swimming, but it can be done. Kids can catch crawfish near the dock.

“Beautiful Lake”

The water was pristine, the views were inspiring and the clean fresh mountain air made the trip complete. We had a lovely picnic and enjoyed the day.
