Hiked several trails, enjoyed watching birds. Blue birds, Tufted Tit-mouse, nuthatches, chipping sparrows,and several others at camp site. Also saw and heard a hawk while hiking green trail. Relaxing.

The entrance fee for the lake is $3 per person weekdays and $5 per person on weekends. Kids in car seats get in free.
