We walked the cottonwood trail with Brent from TheCabins. It started as a rainy morning and we weren't sure how far we would get. We weren't climbing that day as it was too wet and risky for avalanche so we stuck to the trails. These...More

Although we were flying out the next day, we decided to spend our last night at Kathleen Lake. The lake itself is beautiful with a well established area around it for day visitors. The campground is one of the most scenic that I have been...More

The area is absolutely beautiful so if you're looking for scenery alone, it's 5 stars! It got 3 because there's nothing to actually do - no restaurant, rentals, information center, etc. The water is actually quite rough so you can't swim.

Boardwalk for the nervous and branching trails for easy day walks and longer trecks. Certainly worth the drive

The lake was beautiful...still mostly covered with snow and ice...we did not stay at the campground, but settled on Congdon Creek instead as it fit in better with our road-miles itinerary. Don't travel AK without buying "Milepost"....incredibly helpful.

I've been there in the winter and the summer. Lots to see and do. Close to Haines Junction and a short drive to White Horse.

This is a very nice stop. Unfortunately, the day my husband and I were there it turned rainy and cold. However, we had about 30 minutes or so of fair weather to take some photographs and admire the scenery. We noticed a group of hikers...More

The lake and surrounding area is just beautiful! Lots of good interpretation with interesting facts on the history and geology of the area. I stayed in the campground, and loved it! Good facilities. Looks like they even provide ranger talks. Would recommend!

We visited towards the end of the season. It was windy but clear. The lake is remarkably blue when viewed from King's Throne, a hike of 5km and 1800 ft elevation gain. I can see why this place would be an excellent place to stop...More
