Beyond the scenic overlook of the park’s fourthlargest lake, this rewarding route provides access to a group of three charming lakefront campsites that feel miles from the trailhead. Wildflowers, trout, moose, and black bears are abundant. Reserve campsites as far ahead as possible for this popular, family-friendly overnighter.
