Our trip was terrific! On the first day we hiked the nine miles or so to Fremont Lake. It is a long trek so be prepared. You also need to bring some kind of water shoes because you do have to wade across a largish stream. The hardest part of the hike is after the stream crossing, as it is mostly uphill and by that time you are ready to be done. Fremont Lake is very pretty and there are some nice camp sites on the far side of the lake. The only negatives was that there were a lot of mosquitoes and access to the lake for swimming was limited (we had to make our way through some heavy bushes to get to a beach). The second day we hiked back to Lane Lake (about 4-5 miles) and camped there. Lane Lake is gorgeous (much nicer than Fremont Lake). The camp site was great (south side of lake), the mosquitoes were minimal, and swimming was easy and convenient (plus the water was relatively warm). On the third day we hiked back out to the car. For a short trip it was very fun, and I would highly recommend Lane Lake in particular.
