“If you like to paddle, swim, hike or backpack. This is the place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013

Its all beautiful and mostly unspoiled and lightly traveled. We have paddled on many of the smaller lakes and find many to be breathtaking natural granite cirques.

“Gorgeous Alpine Lake”

Great fishing, beautiful scenery, tranquil beaches under the pines and some hiking on top of that. Great for jet skis and boats.

“So nice I hate to tell you about it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2013

I love everything about the area. You can take short hikes and see 5 lakes or so. Check out Sardine Lake area, Frazer falls, Lakes Basin campground, hiking trails.

“gorgeous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2013

A gorgeous lake, with beautiful backdrops. Good for sailing, kayaking or canoeing. Not really big enough to take power boats on. Very cold for swimming, but it can be done. Kids can catch crawfish near the dock.

The water was pristine, the views were inspiring and the clean fresh mountain air made the trip complete. We had a lovely picnic and enjoyed the day.
