We purposely picked this general location for our first boondocking trip because of the flexibility to keep moving on to another lake if spots weren't open. We drove in late on a Friday evening and Fish lake was already pretty full, as was Blue Lake (spots on the lake). Both Fish Lake and Blue lake were not very private, but you can get close to the water. We kept driving onto Sinlahekin Creek as one last option "near" any water. Although we were not on Blue lake, most sites were next to or within ears distance to enjoy the sounds of the creek. There are about 4 boondocking spots (that I saw) and only one was taken. Most had firepits, no picnic tables. There is one vault toilet when you first drive into the area, but it would be quite a walk if you really had to go.

We ended up at a very private site, surrounded by small creeks, a beautiful tree that was frequented by a bald eagle. We were able to set up a a hammock right over one of the small creeks behind our site, while the dogs and kids could play in a larger, faster moving portion in front of our site. At night we we could hear the frogs.

The area in general is beautiful. It is a combination of forest and desert - so be careful about cacti! Our dog and one child were both cacti causalties. One other note, there are cattle that come through... so there is a lot of cow poop, but it was fun to watch them herd move through! There is a shooting area at this site which did interrupt the peacefulness during the day.
