Carson National Forest is a wonderful spot any time of year; Long Canyon is another good spot to pop by nearby. But wait, there's more to do near Hopewell Lake. There's always Hopewell Dam to go to near Hopewell Lake. Lakes? Sure, Rinker Lake is close by, and if you came for an overnight stay Hopewell Lake Campground is a fine location to camp. San Antonio River has a close by whitewater part; the Lagunitas
to Los Pinos sector is a nice 20-mile-in-distance class II-III part of whitewater. If you donít want to risk getting soaked this part of San Antonio River is most likely not for you.
