Spirit Lake in the Unitas

Beautiful campground with so much gorgeous area to be explored. It was a busy July weekend with some bouts neighbors but we found ourselves able to get away and go hiking and take in the views. Bathrooms were cleaned and maintained. We happened to go during mosquito season, but the views were with it. Beautiful place.

Very Pretty

So we went up here to stay and it was a busy weekend every site was full! It looks as if theres a big lodge with cabins for sale that are all closed up right now and takes up one side of the lake. We got up there a lil bit lake about 4pm on a Friday and it was amazing! I hadn't been up here since i was a kid and after the very long dirt road drive from the highway I was disappointed to find no spots available. Because of the trek off the main highway and the later hour; we ended up staying on a abandoned logging road. But we were right across from the stream that leads to the lake. All the sites had picnic tables and firepits I hiked around it for a bit to get the feel of it. Some of the sites had amazing views of the water and others from the dam side with the mtns in the background. The roads in and out of the campground are very sharp curves and very narrow. We had to back around sharp curves because we encountered other trailers coming towards us; not a fun encounter or backing up frenzy. I seen 2 bathrooms and went into one to use it and just walked back out, it was one of the worst smelling outhouses ever! It looked clean though so I'm just guessing they cant get a dump station truck in there till after the season is over. Fishing was good. Alot of running room for my dog. Although people did tend to drive pretty fast on all the roads so be cautious with your animals and young kids.
