There was on August 6th, 2020 a locked gate across the road, right at the trailhead and a second locked gate with ''no tresspassin signs'', a bit further along the road, along with a tall fence. Says Sibylle
This lake is so wonderful. Dry warm beds await you at Holiday Inn Express EAGLE. Coal Creek is a stream that you may run into during your stay. Camping is available at Bear Lake, and Gardner Park is a fine place to check out. Oak Tree Inn Yampa
is a great location to get some rest, and Stagecoach State Park is worth checking out. You just can't picture the amount of outdoors cool things the area next to Wood Lake has to offer.
