Spectacular lake, bring your kayak! And nice hiking trails lead to neighboring lakes. Site 4 is the closest one to the lake that is big enough for a trailer and tow vehicle without unhitching, back in. No hookups, but a $10 dump site, no wait.

We've been here twice in the summer in a large group so we opted both times to pay for a site in the designated campground, but there is free dispersed camping throughout the area for tent campers.
