View Full Version : Loch Lomond

Headed up to Loch Lomond yesterday for some fishing. Two drifts about 1/2 mile from the lake stopped progress for all vehicles that were there. I ended up sideways off the lower side of the trail and had the be winched out by an ATV! :) It was a Polaris Ranger. http://www.polarisindustries.com/en-us/Ranger/Models/RangerXP/
He didn't make it through either. Some dirt bikes and a couple other ATV's made it to the lake.
Here are a few pics at the lake:

Thanks for posting. I am glad I decided to take the kids to Chatfield with the Canoe instead of Loch Lohman. I was on 470 headed that way and had second thoughts knowing I have seen snow up near the lake in July. It would have been a PITA to carry a canoe that far.

Could you get to the camping spots?

Maybe it was only 1/4 mile..? :) Not sure about the camping spots - There were some places which appeared to be camping spots on the road along the way, so I'd say yes, but if they are elsewhere, I don't know. You can drive most of the way to the lake, but we walked the last bit. Didn't locate any of those "big hungry fish" though...

Yea the fish I have caught up there was by the waterfall. You can hike to it by going around to the left or take a canoe.

I have camped up there several times and its hit or miss for catching fish. Still a fun place to Jeep up and camp.
