Red Feather Lakes Area

August 17 to 19

The Red Feather Lakes area is a sight for sore eyes for sure.  We had been there at least three times but our adventures were limited to Deadman Road for dry camping and Dowdy Lake.  Our itchy feet (and paws) led us to a 20-mile drive on dirt/gravel roads through Roosevelt National Forest.  We also visited West Lake where I caught several medium-sized rainbow trout.

In our endeavor to know the area better, we bought a map by National Geographic.

Unable to get a spot at West Lake which has eight first-come, first-served sites, we dry camped in Deadman Road.

Although much smaller than Dowdy Lake, West Lake is not in any way less picturesque
