  • Loved our short stay here. The setting is lovely, located on a lake, and some fall leaves are turning. The room was a basic motel room, but the lodge and restaurant are adjacent to the motel. Best...

  • We hiked the loop that starts behind the visitor center. It's 4 miles give or take. First half uphill not too strenuous. Second half downhill. All forest with many Rock formations near the peak of the hike. Good exercise.
  • It's nice and simple. The people are also really helpful.
