It’s a short trail. Lake can be reached in about an hour. There are some parts of the trail that disappear but is usually marked by cairns in those spots. There aren’t too many spots for camping but your best bet for a spot would be along the west side of the lake. Fun little day hike though.

For a Short-Day or 2-Day hike this is great! The trail isn't too dangerous, it's nice and steep for just part of the way, then it tapers to a nice incline (going in).
We really pushed and made great time. The three of us saw no one else along the way, the entire time we were there. The trail sometimes gets lost among the meadows it crosses, but if you look, the markers are clearly there. Our camp was about 1/2 mile away from the lake, which was perfect. There were small fish in the lake, not really a great fishing spot. We could see timberline and spent some time exploring, laying out in the sun and enjoying the quiet beauty around us. The lake is pretty small, in fact, we contemplated going all the way around it! It's got a ton of springs/runoff running into the lake, which makes it pretty cold. Soaking your smelly, hiker-feet is a must!
