Dorothy Lake

Lake Dorothy is the ultimate destination for the entry level hiker or anglers with small children looking for a widerness fishing experience. The recently renovated trail to Lake Dorothy is easy to travel and its low elevation makes for a great trip in early or late season. Lake Dorothy is stocked every three years and fishing can be great with many shoreline angling opportunities. There are many campsites around this large lake and it is a great trip for a first time overnighter or for the little ones in the family. Camp fires are prohibited and dogs must be leashed at all times. Please use designated toilet sites around the lake.

Getting here:

Drive US 2 east for 45 miles from Everett. Just before milepost 46 turn right (just before tunnel over US 2) at sign for "Money Creek Campground" onto the Old Cascade Highway. Proceed for 1.1 miles, turning right onto Miller River Road (Forest Road 6412). Follow this generally good gravel road for 9.5 miles to its end at the trailhead - Restrooms at trail head - Dogs must be leashed. Trail #1072
