Great Forest service campground. We were there early season - Mid-May and were the only ones in the campground. Water was not yet turned on and campground not officially open so no fees. Some of the sites are level - but many require leveling. Fishing at this lake can be excellent - wild brown trout and stocked rainbows. We have stayed here three times so far - October (snowed), April (snowed), and May (was beautiful!). Birdwatching is great as well - both Bald Eagles and Ospreys fishing all day long.

MWC would stay here again
