I briefly lived in the area and spent many weekends scrambling over rocks. The lake is a little unpredictable (depending on rainfall), but the rocks are always ready to go. There's also a really neat little museum/learning center on the main road through the park.

Quartz Mountain Resort was Ok. Had to walk too far to room. Only restaurant within 9 miles was at the resort and it was somewhat overpriced! It also did not serve lunch,.

We've done a lot of hikes and swimming around the area and always enjoyed ourselves (though mostly because there's not much else to do in the area). When there was a lot of rain over the summer, the lake rose considerably and we were actually...More
