    Absolutely stunning place, not to far on a gravel road to a beautiful doc site with a lake that so clear we had to swim in it. Cool but not freezing. Inviting place to camp so we will be back - need a little bug spray.

    Surrounded by the autumn leaves this clear running water was a delight to be around- there was even a guy fully submerged with a snorkel looking for gold.
