Description

The sun shines bright on Cottonwood Lake, a perfect getaway for anglers, floaters, and relax-to-the-maxers. You’ve got a few serious mountains nearby with endless hiking opportunities, and for you couch potatoes, you’ll be hard pressed to find a prettier drive than the one west of the campground on Forest Road 344 to Mineral Basin. Lake, mountains, sunshine. What more could you possibly want?
