My husband and I spent the 4th of July (coming from Seattle) at the campground at Cathedral Lakes and on those particular days, we were the only campers there and we loved it. I'd heard about this place way back in 2008 and we finally made it! And we plan to go again...
We totally enjoyed the truck ride up to the Lodge at some 6000 feet, the lakes were beautiful, the hikes incredible (up to Lakeview Mt. with 360 degree views was amazing), the Lodge and ranger staff were super helpful, and next time we'll have dinner at the Lodge! Because there WILL be a next time!
