A gentle hike, great camping, and a chance to get away from the campground masses—perhaps these are the reasons Queant Lake is so popular. While you’re likely to have neighbors here, it’s a whole lot better than spending the night with the RVs and roadside tenters. Besides, not all backpackers are loners. Many actually enjoy a little company, as long as backcountry etiquette is followed.
Queant Lake is big enough to handle several large groups. It’s a long walk around its 57 acres, and there are plenty of campsites, horse pasture, and spring water. Look for the latter along the northern shore. You will have little difficulty finding a ready-made camp. All you’ll have to do is move in. If Queant doesn’t suit your tastes, head north another 0.75 mile to Ogden Lake.
