We spent and afternoon at this mountain lake with the snow falling and the rainbows inhaling our flies. Great place to see.

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.

this is a great lake for teaching your kids how to fish. you can use flies or bait. best time to fish is early evening when everyone else is eating in town. we caught and release about a dozen rainbows.

This is such a pretty little lake. Water is crystal clear and you can see to the bottom. Lots of small trout and great place to take small children. There are also some hiking trails.
