Report: Absolutely breathtaking! The lake was easy to drive to, the cabins just a few miles up the road were definatly worth pulling the kids out of the water. One word of caution, do not take a car from Kamas to the cabins. The road is just way too rough. I would suggest going to Evanston then Ft. Bridger if you are taking a car... Sign me as the girl in the little red sports car going over Elizabeths pass...
