  • This is a natural wonderland! The largest stand of Ponderosa Pines in the world! Lots of forest service roads, wildlife rivers and lakes...I spend lots of time here  more »
  • We only drove for a hour or so from North of Strawberry. Much of the drive is through forest but the open overlooks are great. I wish I had time to go in the evening to watch the sunset.  more »

  • A beautiful and magical place . Take the rim road and stop often. Great camping, hiking and bike riding. Just keep an eye out for the occasional bear lol.
  • We camp and fish on the rim frequently. Great place to visit. Just be sure to watch out for the wildlife up there. Lots of elk and bear. If you hear whistles or screams out in the forest, pack up and leave. Won’t go into it but just leave. Doesn’t happen often enough to deter people from going up there just be aware
