Was just there May 18, 2019. The lake is dry right now and the old forest stumps are a sight to see and walk through. Still and incredible place to go. Campsites are closed except for on the Canadian northern tip of the Lake. The Hozemeen Trail off the Eastern edge of the lake is excellent although it has some trees down for a portion of the trail. Views from Ross Lake are incredible. Nice and warm weather in the 70s in May so far.
