Take the four-mile trail around the west side of the lake. Good fishing under the bridge.

Dutch, Hidden, and Crater Lakes might be worth checking out.

Jackass Meadows campground is just below the dam. It was closed after the 2011 high water, but I think its open now. One can disperse camp along the road on the way in and theres lots of good spots, but you need a campfire permit. Not sure what the status is on campfire permits with the dry weather.
If you stand in the light, you get the feel of the night, and the music that plays in your ear......
In your mind you can hear, a voice so sweet and clear, and the music that plays in your head......
As it flows up from the ground, taking all that hear the sound, close your eyes, it’s about to begin.

Checked on the National Forest page, didn't see anything about fire restrictions except for some of the PCT; anyone know for Florence?
