I was told by my Grandmother (Olive Bentley) that this lake was named for her father Gustave States, the owner of the Canyon Ranch. He had homesteaded Sinks Canyon and the surrounding area, where my grandmother remained until just prior to her death in 1976 at the age of 96. Says William Bentley
Little Popo Agie Basin is a great place to check out, and in all probability you're looking for nearby lakes? Sure, Christina Lake is just a very short distance
away. This lake is located in the wonderful Wind River Range. That right there is heaps already, but it keeps on going; Gustave Lake has it all.
