Clair Tappaan Lodge

The Lodge's network of trails connects to several mountain lakes and swimming holes perfect for a dip and a picnic lunch. Larger lakes with warmer water and more amenities are a short drive from the Lodge.

Suggested Lakes:

  • Lake Flora - A two mile hike from the Lodge's backdoor will deliver you to this perfect mountain lake. Lake Flora is a granite rimmed gem that offers easy swimming and wading access for kids, and a great location for taking in views while enjoying a picnic lunch.
