Definitely not a great place to go if you don't have a truck or suv. The roads are bad around the lake with tons of wash outs. Drive carefully! The lake is silting in, and the marshy area much bigger than it used to be. Probably from all the beetle kill and damage from forest fires that hit awhile ago. You used to have water directly from the lake, but it's no longer potable, so you have to bring your own. Still no swimming allowed in the lake though. The big old trees I remember as a kid are gone, and it's mostly small hemlocks. Still decent fishing, but the mosquitoes were so numerous it made camping not pleasant. We got eaten alive.

View of Olallie lake through what's left of the trees. Lots of beetle kill up there.
