It was dusk when we arrived at Stillwater's campground and it was drizzling, but the weather was not kind to us, but we were still impressed with the view. The campground is surrounded by a lake on three sides, and on the other side, there is a mountain view with golden fall colors. The campground is well organized and there is nothing to fault. In the late fall, there were still people around, but only the neighbors who especially like to enjoy the quiet outdoors, and it was very quiet all day long. We were prepared for colder fall weather, but slept comfortably in long sleeves with warmer gear, and Stillwater is very well equipped with free hot water for showers, a blessing for visitors from California.

The next morning we woke up and the weather cleared up, and the view was even more beautiful when we got out of the tent. I wanted to sleep in and get back on the road, but instead, I enjoyed the view and hung out at the campground for the morning, admiring the fall colors and the superb view of the lake in the sunshine. There is no trail in the campground itself, but the campgrounds closest to the lake are closed during the off-season, which made the trail around the lake perfect for us.
