Paddling down the walls of the canyons that climb to more than 100 feet allow a moment in quiet serenity. My kids and I like to stop and anchor in coves and pretend to find pirates. Tall pine trees and giant rocks also decorate the sides of these walls.
Additionally, there are places to stop and hike. No powerboats are allowed so the calm water is only disturbed by the wind. Because it is at the end of a canyon, that can be frequent.
In addition, the three different fingers of this small reservoir are fed with small streams which during the late summer Cochone Salmon turn bright red and spawn. If you care to fish, the reservoir is also stocked with trout.
In early Spring the put-in is a simple park and paddle. However, as summer drains the reservoir, a steep portage down a gravel-covered shore is required. Parking exists by the dam and near the Boy Scout camp.
Fun paddle for the whole family!
