We love to sit by the lake, swim, paddle, take hikes, enjoy the scenery. It is usually not too crowded unless it is a holiday. Good camping spots not too expensive. Close to other trails and Stanley area.

Good question. When I was there last fall I did see several boats on the lake, but don't know if they were rentals or owned. You might want to check with the lodge. If anyone rents them, they would know..
