Camping at Watson Lake?

Warning....lot of road noise, but the kayaking is great!

This lake is amazing. Makes an excellent stopping point on any road trip. The lake is easily accessible, doesn't require a long hike to access. There's pretty few tourists and it's really big! I scrambled around for an hour and a half or so trying to get every sunset photo I could, super fun, great reflections. Comparable to a bigger Sand Harbor in Lake Tahoe. Have fun Boulder hopping!
