Plenty of room

Quiet and beautiful. The water was low when we arrived, but we could see the water from our spot. We picked an area up in the tall grass, but several people including large trailers were set up on the shore. There are so many spots to set up here that you can really enjoy a quiet evening.

Beautiful by one of the prettiest lakes

Driving by, this ace stole our heart so we had to stop. It's not got the amenities that some would want, but for us, it wasnt an issue

  • Great way to end a full day!
  • The balsamroot was in heavy bloom a little further up the road!
