Lakes Basin Lodges

Lakes of the Lakes Basin

Wherever you wander in the Lakes Basin Recreation Area you will discover another lake around the bend in the trail.  Sweeping views and spectacular vistas are open to you from the ridges and mountain tops. One of the many trails is the Pacific Crest Trail running along the edge of the area which you can access easily from Round Lake or Helgramite Lake. Stay a week and you can have a new hike everyday! Visitors never tire of returning year after year to this pristine area of beautiful lakes and meadows.
