The road up to Bowman lake is bumpy and rocky but once you are there it is all worth it. The lake is absolutely beautiful, the hosts are the nicest we have met, and the campsites are clean. What more could you ask for? The lake was absolutely stunning and clear so you could see the fish. The only unnerving thing was there had been mountain lion attacks and such just before we came there. We never did see one but it was an amazing campground.
