Anglers enjoy the remote location and scenic backdrop of two natural lakes, providing excellent fishing opportunities for coldwater and warmwater species. Squaw Lake, larger than its sister, sustains rainbow and cutthroat trout, yellow perch, brown bullhead and black bass. Little Squaw Lake provides a rare fishery for 8-11" wild, native coastal cutthroat trout. A 0.25-mile hiking trail connects the lakes. Motors are not permitted on the lakes.
From the campground, Little Squaw Trail is a 1-mile interpretive hike that provides visitors with many opportunities for picnicking and swimming. The 2-mile Summit Lake Trail travels through a mixed conifer forest and small water crossings.
