Any time is a fine time at Mud Lake if you fancy the outdoors. Ashley Inn is a glorious place to get some rest, and a quick visit to Williams Creek is certainly a perfect idea. This lake is so wonderful. A delightful place to stop at close to
Mud Lake is Dry Buck Summit, and while you're here, you could explore Howell Creek. On Payette River close by you come upon the 7-mile-in-length Banks to Beehive Bend sector of category III whitewater.
