One of the larger lakes ringing the deep basins within the shadows of glacierclad Mount Daniel, Marmot Lake is also one of the less popular. It’s not because of its characteristics or any inherent fl aws—it’s an attractive lake with nice sunny ledges for lounging. Campsites are good— fi shing too—and the trail leading to the lake is pleasant and well graded. So what gives? Nearby Tuck and Robin Lakes siphon away the masses, leaving Marmot and nearby Lake Clarice for those intent on not sharing backcountry campsites with half of Seattle.
