We stayed at the Saddlebag Lake Campground. It was nice and small. The site have nice flat area for your tent. Some site were fantastic and some just ok. It is first come so don't be surprised if there are no sites available. We lucked out and got the last one( right next to camp host). We had a good lake view but camp host ran generator all night. We saw wildlife! Lots of birds and deer. We decided to hike the 5 mile 20 lakes loop. The cost to ride boat to other side of lake is $12. round trip. Seniors $10 and dogs $5. This cuts the 9 mi loop to 5 mi. I want to start by saying I do a lot of day hikes. I am not fast but I am good for about 7-8 I had poles and went through 3 ltr of water. We took snacks. THIS IS NOT AN EASY HIKE! If I would have written this review last week it would not have been nice. But after thinking about it it was beautiful. But the trail is very rocky. Not pebbles but 2.5 miles of ROCK! You cross over this ridge that is a huge rock! The trail is easily lost. Look for rocks piled up in a tower to show the way. Also do the hike counter clockwise. You have a big ravine to climb out of and it is easier going down than up. We had our dog and even she had a hard time. My husband had to help her up the ravine because her feet got sore. Mine were so bruised by the end! And yes I had on hiking shoes. Knees and Ankles also sore by end. The hike took us a little over 4 hours. I will not be going there again. I feel that it is important that you know in advance what this hike is like. I didn't! If you choose to do this hike take your time. Be careful and enjoy.
