  • I visited here many times during haynes stay. On the other side of the lake you can see a mountain with glaciers. Salmon is going up to the river where the lake is the source of the water, and a lot of anglers are fishing. The bear goes out aiming at the salmon, too. Our children also enjoyed fishing from the lake pier.

  • Lovely forest, great lake views, fish weir, and a really nice drive to get there; well worth the effort.  more »
  • Drove out to the park in the hopes of seeing bear but none to be seen. The park is well kept and truly worth the drive.  more »
