I was raised near this lake and when a child we had to pack horses into this lake. It is not near any campgrounds, and it's over 25 miles to town, not 18. It gets way colder than 0 in the winter but the views are almost correct. It IS beautiful! Says Steve Hudson
All the outdoors enjoyable things in the neighborhood of Opal Lake will keep you coming back persistently. Wolf Creek has great slopes and a friendly staff, and in the winter you may take a
snow mobile ride at Snow Country Adventure Tours. This lake is so wonderful. A pleasant close by hotel is OakRidge Lodge; the Fish Creek Trail offers hiking at its best.
