Gun Lake is a sparkling body of water that rests at the base of Mount Penrose, a 2,627 m (8,618 ft) peak. The lake and its surrounding region create a wealth of outdoor recreation opportunities. A series of trails begin at the scenic lake’s north end and continue across to the Plateau Ponds. Gun Lake is popular for boating and angling and can be enjoyed from a number of overnight accommodation options. Winter visitors can join the fun of the annual Winterfest activities.
