“Nice lake side views, but buggy.”

Overall Rating

This was a las minute "One Nighter" on way to Craters of the Moon. Main dirt road is fine, well kept. Side roads to camping "Sites" location maybe not so nice, narrow and slow. There are a few area locations and like Goldilocks, some won't fit all.
I tried one or two of the first ones, but a little too jammed and didn't want to get stuck. Solo here. you can see the "One Holers" at the main location points. I found the one, and up on a small mound for a "Room with a View" Which was nice.

Now, the dark secret, Bugs... I'm finally learning why reservoirs are so good for fish. As Carl Sagan used say, "There are Millions of Millions...." of bugs. Non threatening other than just an annoyance. You can "Hear" them swarming.

I did have great, SID (Solar-Internet-DISH) so stayed several days, but with the bugs it was time to move on. Also, occasional Stagnant water smell would waffle through the area... not a big deal, passes in a few minutes. Bugs, were the main thing, sorta like gnats...
