Can I swim in the lake?
Spruce Mountain Lake has crystal clear water, and it is great for swimming. The previous owner of the cabin swam only at this location. In his mind, no other place was as nice as this. His wife said he was spoiled.
Is there a refrigerator at the cabin?
There is a cooler at the cabin. You can bring a block of ice, and place it with your food in the cooler. You are recommended to carry in your cold items in a backpack and then use the available cooler. In warm temperatures, you can keep the cooler cold by placing a wet towel on top of the cooler. The heat will dry the towel and keep your cooler cold.
