A perfect close by hotel is Rodeway Inn & Suites, and the top of Snow Peak is easily spotted from Indian Prairie Lake. Indian Prairie Lake is a beautiful lake in the Central Cascade Range. There's a delightful 9.6-mile-in-distance type II whitewater part on Thomas Creek nearby, the Log Bridge to Hannah Bridge sector. If you are an expert kayak paddler, you should probably search for a different part of whitewater
than this part of Thomas Creek to run. Nearby there is a pleasant 10-mile-from-start-to-finish type III-IV whitewater section, the Snow Peak Camp to Larwood Park section of Crabtree Creek.
