My husband and I backpacked into West Fork Lake this last weekend for 3 days! We camped at the lake and we also hiked up the ridge to the fire tower! Incredible views. The tower is unstable, do not climb it. It would have been cool to go up top, but the bottom steps were all torn out. Flies and mosquitoes were bad, but Sawyer bug lotion seemed to work. I think I only had two bites! So quiet and perfect up there and hope to return in the near future! Worth every moment!

We took horses into Harrison Lake on a day trip a few years back. It was a bit of a grueling ride but very enjoyable for experienced riders or hikers. We used this route as it is closer to home than the pack river road route.
Harrison is one of the best lakes I’ve been to. It’s big, it’s beautiful, loved the rocks and trees around the lake , they are spectacular. Saw a big moose.

Enjoyed our two night backpacking trip to the lake. Good fishing and even a few local wildlife to watch play. the addition of the bear pole is a nice touch to keep you and your food safe.
