1 Review of Bear Paw Lake
Remote Beauty

There are several sites along the lake and we stayed at site A.

This little lake is off the beaten path, a short hike beyond String and Leigh Lakes. We decided to set up camp and then take a short walk to Trapper Lake surrounded by beautiful views the entire way. 

The area around the fire pit was quite nice, large and had nice natural benches. Unfortunately it was too close to the sleeping area to actually cook there, so we decided to cook at the bear box. We were joined by a deer, too! The bear box was large enough for all of our food, dishes and toiletries. So no need to carry a bear vault/bear keg if you don't want.

The site was very flat and shaded, which was nice late summer. The water was crisp and we welcomed the cold after a day of hiking in the hot sun.

If you can snag a site here for a night or two, definately do it!
