Quiet, peaceful, likely all yours and great swimming. You have to work to get here but it's worth it. Be prepared. The hike in is rough even without a pack. If you tend to drink lots of water, bring a bladder so you don't run out. Hike will test your mettle.

Not a bad idea to call ahead to the ranger station to find out where water levels are: the recent drought, and what time of year you go will affect water levels and possibly where you camp. August water levels tend to be much lower than June.
