This hike is for the roadside camper looking for a short diversion. Castle Lake is less than half a mile west of Butterfly Lake. Butterfly Lake has excellent campground facilities, as well as a parking area for day-use anglers. There is no trail to Castle Lake, but just head due west, stay close to the base of the cliffs, and you can’t miss it. There are several small ponds on the way. Don’t mistake one of them for Castle Lake.
