Nice campground on a tranquil lake, with easy access to multiple hiking trails.
Great hike first 2 miles is easy and kid friendly
Second half up to the PC climbs with switch backs but all in all is a great hike.
This trail is a fairly easy loop with multiple trails coming off of it. There is access to the Pacific Crest Trail as well. I've hiked this trail multiple times and the only annoying things I've come across are large amounts of horse poop and streams that cut through the trail. The trail is surrounded by a beautiful forest and includes periodic views of Walupt Lake.
We come here every year and we love this little lake, however, sometimes there are too many people and the campground can get a little noisy. It really depends on the week. There are some wonderful hikes in the area, and sailing on the lake is a great fun as long as you keep a look out for submerged logs.
Nice campground on the lake with easy access to multiple hiking trails. Canoes, kayaks, fishermen and stand up paddlers were all busy during our stay.
