A little sad as the YMCA was there for over 50 years and not even mentioned in the story except for a photograph from 1800s They built the camp and developed the lake. If it was not for their passion for the property it woul not be there today.

We love going to Bluff Lake and the Lodgepole Pine.... particularly when we have young children visiting. You can go out on an adventure that is very interesting for all ages and the children can handle it due to the short hike involved. We've parked at the place that has you going to the Lodgepole Pine first, then the lake.... and recently we parked at the opposite end of the lake than we usually see, and walked around the whole lake. You can see the very old cabins.... the public wasn't allowed to do the whole lake walk until a couple of years ago. We like to go in late spring/early summer the most so the lake is fairly full and the meadow by the Lodgepole is green. Fun to see tadpoles and polywogs in June last year... And we go in the morning.... there by 9 or 10 AM. Fun!

You're right it is green and gorgeous.

Unless it closed in the last 90 minutes - I just came down the 330 from Arrowbear. Wide open like a Tuesday night during the World Series. Nothin but crickets - and an occasional patch-o-ice.

Be advised, traffic going down on hwy 38 is backed up for many miles from jenks lake road west and at a stand still. Recommend using hwy 18 through lucerne valley as an alternative!
