This lake is closed from public. You can see the lake only from a distance, off the highway. There is small parking area in front of the entrance.
The place can be missed easily, best to check ahead so you can recognize the entrance sign. Still, it is difficult to appreciate the lake from a distance. Furthermore, you can't see much if water level was too high.

Its an interesting mineral lake full of salt and other minerals. Information posted there suggests that it was used by First Nations to heal. One can only look at it from a vanatge point.

This small lake (large pond) is right off the highway on the west side of town. If you’re driving fast, you may miss it. Most folks just pull off the highway and park. There’s a sign indicating the lake and what causes the phenomena. It’s interesting to take a few photos of but not an activity you’d spend a lot of time at.

This was on our way to another activity but the water level was too high to see the spots properly.
It’s just off the side of the highway so was an easy stop.
