Excellent backpack-in site

About 6.4 miles in from the trailhead, this is an EXCELLENT site! There are a lot of black flies during the day, and a lot of mosquitos at night so bring your repellent. You can swim at this lake, and the crisp glacial waters are amazing for a dip after the hike in. The views from all the tentpads are phenomenal - makes the uphill hiking worth it many times over! Separate cooking area a short walk from the tent pads keeps away bears, and a bear pole makes storing food a breeze with some rope. Of course bring a water filter for the lake, and some TP for the privy. Privy has a shelter with a latched door which is great for privacy with shared campsites. One of the tentpad areas has some great trees for hammock camping. We hung up two hammocks and slept there all night! No fires are allowed so bring a camp stove.
