Camper beauty

The views were spectacular. The campgrounds were easy to access.

Great but gets HOT-

Very nice Pinon Pines and other small trees for cover. Up on the top of a hill next to the lake, so not much access to the water. One year, when the water was low, it took about 15 min both ways up/down pretty rough and rugged trails. Or you drive around to other places to access the lake.

Nice place to stay, but gets VERY HOT. And can also have some unpredictable weather roll through with high winds. Remember this site is on a hilltop. 

One photo you can see another campground, across the lake, that has almost no cover, not much sagebrush even, but is right next to the water. We choose the Ridge with Pinons, and the hike to water. But some may want more water access.
