Plan was to go to Poker Flat but the snow was too gnarly for our cars. We camped along the trail with the beautiful scenery and it was a great place to be. I recommend it. We took another trip and made it to Poker Flat I suggest that route.

I camped at Snake Lake, and the campgrounds are are really nice. Right beside the lake, with bathrooms available to most campsites. There are fallen trees in the area that can supply plenty of firewood if you don't bring your own. The fishing is good if you bring the right lures, almost the entire surface is covered in growth. I also went to Silver Lake and made the hike to Gold Lake; both are very beautiful lakes, and have wonderful sites along the trails.
