Campsite on Junction Lake in October (Jeff Statt)
Junction Lake (Steve Hart)
Old PCT sign (Steve Hart)

Description

Junction Lake is centrally located in the Indian Heaven Wilderness. Several small campsites are near the shore; the lake is a popular short backpack destination and a base for exploring the wilderness to the north, west, and south. Bog blueberries ripen in abundance here in late August/early September.

East Crater can be seen to the south. It is a short scramble up to the rim. In 2017, a small wildfire began at East Crater and reached the shore of the lake.
