Paddle sports

I kayaked the perimeter of the reservoir, starting at the bottom near the damn where there’s ample parking. Mid-June the water was the highest I’ve ever seen it - normally the tree stumps show on the South side. There is a restroom and water near the boat launch on the West side. Also along the West side where the road is you’ll encounter the most traffic of other paddle sport or people fishing. Kayaking along the East and South side of the reservoir was scenic. The full perimeter can be done in about 90 min, which included the wind going against me - both ways! Don’t rely on the wind carrying you back, it changes direction quickly.

Hiking

This is not a trail, it is just the road that surrounds the west side of the reservoir. This road is highly trafficked and the few sites to get to the lake are mostly always been used. Fortunately, we didn't wasted out trip as we got to go on a nice hike on a trail that starts at the end of the ledgefork campground.

Walked along the road around the lake for a short while. Saw Moose tracks. Couldn’t find trailhead and road closed to trailhead. Beautiful scenery.

Road to get to trailhead is a very rough dirt road with holes and ruts, would not recommend for a car or other low clearance vehicles. As of 4/25/20, trail is a mix of melt runoff, snow, ice, and slushy snow that you posthole through. Only walked part of the trail along reservoir due to conditions (and no snowshoes with us) - did not walk all the way to end at campground. Reservoir is really pretty with ice /snow on it and mountains all around.

HikingWashed out

This was a great hike but there’s a large section that’s been washed out due to the water and it has became a small river. Still very lovely. I’ll try again later this month too see if it’s changed.

Fishing

We have a cabin close to smith and Moore house we love it there. Not too crowded. We go in the mornings and fish. Multiple times our boys have caught around 10 fish in a little over an hour. There is a trail nearby that is fun for the kids with a beaver dam on the way. A lot of childhood memories have been made here!
