A little sad as the YMCA was there for over 50 years and not even mentioned in the story except for a photograph from 1800s They built the camp and developed the lake. If it was not for their passion for the property it woul not be there today.

We love going to Bluff Lake and the Lodgepole Pine.... particularly when we have young children visiting. You can go out on an adventure that is very interesting for all ages and the children can handle it due to the short hike involved. We've parked at the place that has you going to the Lodgepole Pine first, then the lake.... and recently we parked at the opposite end of the lake than we usually see, and walked around the whole lake. You can see the very old cabins.... the public wasn't allowed to do the whole lake walk until a couple of years ago. We like to go in late spring/early summer the most so the lake is fairly full and the meadow by the Lodgepole is green. Fun to see tadpoles and polywogs in June last year... And we go in the morning.... there by 9 or 10 AM. Fun!

I remember 2 winter YMCA-Indian Guides trips to Bluff Lake with my dad. I was probably in 3rd and 4th grade (1973).

Yes that was awesome Mike! We had a little subtropical moisture getting pulled in, lots of low-mid & upper level moisture. Made for a neat day out there, busy at the resorts with Spartan Games! I feel sorry for anyone running the race tomorrow, weather will be not so favorable. Cold, windy and wet, possibly some snow!

We made it out to the Big Best Historical Museum today for the first time. My little one had a grand time panning for gold, painting rocks, and playing with the American Logs.
