May I ask why (almost) everyone on this thread is taking care not to mention this lake? I've been there several times. It's easy to find, and I have no idea what is meant by "difficult access", it's a 5 minute walk from the car, maybe less. Is this place really all that super-sekrit? Every time I've been to ____ Lake, I've seen the shoreline beat to crap at the put-in. It seems folks really just don't give a damn about taking care. Unfortunate, but any place in the universe that's easily accessed by cars is going to get beat up. One of the reasons I like to take to the remote corners of the high country.
