Visited this place after twenty years. The lake shrunk, but is still gorgeous. They did not cut the forest surrounding it, either. So the nature is still there, which is good news. But for the rest, the amount of rubbish around the lake is simply sickening. Instead of like two parlours in 1998, there were more than a hundred now, and with obviously no dustbins, everything is thrown either right on the ground or simply in the lake. There is broken glass everywhere and used tins as well. The people are flooded with rubbish, but they seem little to mind and happily throw everything on the ground. The place is smelly, dirty and there are no toilets either. I cannot understand how can this be a national park. If you fancy great walks in the forests and are willing to take long walks, this is the place for you, but if you would like to stay by the lake, it is repulsive. Hopefully in the future the place will be more regulated and the rubbish collected or burnt. At the moment it seems completely unregulated and disorganised. Very sad to see this beautiful serene mountain lake surrounded with (mainly plastic) rubbish. The stray dogs are not helping it either. Avoid if you don't want to be disappointed, or go early in the season (May), perhaps the situation with the rubbish is better then.

I went during the Ramadan season and it was blazing hot so literally nobody else was there except us. I've been told that during any other time of the year it's normally very crowded. It was a great place to relax and enjoy a small picnic. Each little tent/hut has a fireplace to cook things, so you can cook things if you wanted to. Don't drink the water though, it's extremely salty and people bathe and wash their clothes in it. I was extremely disappointed at the amount of trash and litter left by people there. Things ranging from dirty clothes (underwear), to food wrappers, to animal feces cover the walking paths so you have to constantly watch your step. A few members of our party weren't paying attention and stepped in animal feces. Empty bottles and wrappers block the water flow. I wish that people would take better care of the park.

We had a great time yesterday visiting Aguelmam Azegza (or Azigza). Very relaxed atmosphere in a beautiful setting. You can have tea, wonderful local bread cooked in an outdoor wood oven, or even a meal. You can also camp there. Might be crowded in high season but by the end of october, we were very few (2 families). You can see many magot monkeys in the woods around and the Oum Erbia source excursion is close (and not crowded too at this time). Do not trust google maps if it indicates the small unpaved roads to reach the eastern side of the lake. It's full of rocks and muddy, you might break your car if its not a 4×4. Take the road on the left that leads to Ain Leuh at the cross from Khenifra (it indicates "aguelmam"). In a few minutes you will reach another cross then take right and you're there, on the western side of the lake.
