Swim or fish in a forest lake high in the Goat Rocks Wilderness. Since the bottom is muddy, there is no chance for wading, and small children should be careful. While we were there on a hot July morning, older children who were good swimmers were jumping from a large rock on the east shoreline into the deepest part of the lake. Bleached drift logs line one end of the lake and little children could sit on them and kick safely for water fun and games.
