1 Review of Snow Lake Zone
A Campground for the Very Lucky

The Snow Lake Zone is one of the permitted camping areas in the Enchantments. Permits  here  are very hard to get via the lottery (but easier to get than a permit for the Core Zone). You can also camp in the Snow Zone if you have a Core permit.

Snow Lakes is amazing. It's about 8 miles backpacking in from the Snow Lake Trailhead. It's at elevation, but not as cold as the Core Zone.

There is a backcountry toilet at Snow Lake (no walls, just a toilet),  but no other amenities.  There is water everywhere in the Enchantments, if you have a filter, you're never more than steps away from an alpine fresh water bottle refill. 

I used my 15 degree sleeping bag end of July (I'm a cold sleeper and the temps were about 30)

There are no fires allowed.

The best camping place we found  was a little spit at the far end of  the lake (almost all the way to the end that is closest to the core zone)
