Beautiful lake, friendly Park Attedants, and nice sites. You are in bear country so remember to put your food and cooking items away.

What an amazing place! It's easy to find with a good amount of parking spots (not sure what it would be like during the summer). It's a great place to visit in all seasons and weather condition. We went while the lake was still mostly...More
