In the spring, before the lake reaches high water levels from spring runoffs, the inlet of Llewellyn Gulch has nice sandy beaches, perfect for securing your boat and setting up camp. Later in the year, the lake water covers the sand, making finding a camp spot more challenging. Spring also has fewer other hikers. Follow the small stream upcanyon. Although the canyon starts wide near the lake, it quickly narrows. In these lower narrows an active beaver population has created several small pools, which can be waded or skirted along the banks or in the shallows on the sides of the pools.
