No, this lake is not a swamp where alligators or snakes feed. In fact, it’s rather uncommon to encounter any reptile above 9,000 feet in the High Uintas. However, Alligator Lake can be exploited by human creatures. Dominant pressure persists on weekends, but during the weekdays you should experience a solemn piece of solitude. Good to excellent camping opportunities exist all around the lake.
