  • Wandering to Whitehorse we camped at Mucho Lake. Beautiful is a word that describes this place. Easy to linger rather than pushing up the highway.  more »
  • We drove through here on our way to Alaska. It is stunningly beautiful - the scenery just gets more impressive the further you go! Lots of little stop offs to pull over and take photographs, and I'm s...  more »

  • It was beautiful clean open spaces! Northern Rockies Lodge was pleasant. Expensive. Don't expect to use the internet your Extremely limited. Maybe enough to check email. After that smoke signals will be your only choice! Actually the fact that they claim internet service is very misleading. I ran through my allotment in 10 min. I didn't think it worth asking what more would cost. It's of course a little expensive. The staff is friendly and courteous.
  • Great Park. Beautiful scenery. Great campgrounds and miles of trails to hike. Beautiful spot to canoe or boat.
  • Absolutely stunning! What a beautiful crystal clear lake. Great fishing and camping available at 2 locations. We stayed at Strawberry Flats and this 25 site campground was full by 3pm mid week. Very popular spot to pull off the hwy and camp for the night. Some people were sharing sites and camping off pitches too. Water and pit toilets available. Some sites could accommodate a larger rig but most are motorhome size only. We took one of the larger sites and it just about fitted us at 56ft. Fire ring and tables in all sites. Take your fishing rod.
  • Really like our stay here large sites free firewood .Can fish there. Clean bathrooms. And a beach front on the lake close by you can walk to from the park very Nice and we'll maintain park
  • RV spots are available right on the bank of the lake. Picnic tables are at those sites. The 3 stars, for me, is due to the lame store, Wifi limits, and lodge food being overpriced for what it is. Lunch menu approx $20 and dinner $40. As for the store you really can't call it that. Drinks and yougurt. Bulk of seasonal staff is very friendly. Lady at front desk is efficient not personable, whether or not she needs to be is subjective. Bottom line, area is beautiful and worth some time.
