We snowshoe the road trail and were pleasantly surprised to find this lake. It was a nice diversion from the groomed road. Pretty and quiet.

I've been coming to Red Lodge for years and this place was amazing! No one was there and we got to catch a few small trout! I highly recommend packing a lunch and hanging out here for a few hours.

This impoundment of a local creek was restored some time ago & is now a Forest Service picnic area., A local businessman built a dam to create a pond. He also constructed docks, a swim area and a dance pavilion, Sadly, there's no pavilion today.
