Down a long, dusty road... Jul 24, 2012
The MAR is down a dirt road around 5 1/2 miles long, though sparse pine trees and burnt forest. The office where you check in has a small grocery store and also has fishing equipment to rent (along with a license and bait). There are showers in each restroom along with a laundry of about four washers and dryers.
The tent sites are furthermost from the restrooms with the two closest among the RVs with no shade (and it was pretty hot during the day). There are no bear boxes in spite of it being located in bear country, though they make a lot of fuss about what you can't leave out and threaten with a $6500 find from Fish and Game.
The swim area on the lake is sectioned off by buoys and drops off really deep after a few feet.
Water pressure in the showers was pretty low, making it hard to rinse hair.
