Enjoyed an hour just floating in this incredible place. Wish the bathrooms had been opened. Only had portable toilets which appeared not have been cleaned since Labor Day. :(

Stopped by on our way to Grand Coulee Dam. Interesting history regarding why the lake has a soapy feel and the mineral content of the mud.

don't expect razzle dazzle or a built up tourist destination, but do love the beauty and uniqueness of the place. Is the beach less beautiful than a white sand beach of hawaii, yes. Does the sand/thin mud bottom of the lake smell like sulfur if...More
