History & Nature

Located in the White Mountains, the lake is the perfect escape from the heat of the summer. The 154-acre impoundment of the upper San Francisco River is abundant with trout. The lake is accessible year-round, but ices over in the winter. Ice fishing is usually available, but check conditions before hitting the ice.

Things to Do

While you’re here, you’ll want to make some time for fishing. This lake holds the record for the largest cutthroat trout in the state at 6 pounds, 5 ounces. Don’t forget your pole!
