Located right across the road from the Summer Lake General Store, the Summer Lake Rest Area has a small figure 8 layout, with limited turn-around space. The downside is that by virtue of the layout, it's really only appropriate for smaller rigs. The upside is that you won't have a refrigerated truck parked behind you all night! There are four concrete pit style restrooms forming the center of the figure 8, and a couple water faucets were observed. Water quality is unknown. The spot we selected was level enough that it wasn't worth getting out any legos or unhitching.

My Google Fi phone was roaming onto a local provider with about 3 meg down but NONE up. The AT&T Mobley is showing 3 meg down and about 1.5 up. Certainly no speed records but enough to file this review.
