A grouping of small lakes on the Eastern slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountains near Bridgeport, California. Camping & fishing is the main attraction here, along with dispersed creekside camps. Awesome back country access for the backpackers who love hiking the high country, into Hoover Mountain Wilderness. Aspen trees turn bold colors as freezing temps drop in Autumn, and can be breathtaking in October. Sometimes the window of opportunity is very short, as the first snow of the season usually falls at the same time of year.
