    If you can hike/snowshoe it is. After a certain amount of snow hits the ground you can camp pretty much anywhere. I checked into that last year when we went to Frog Lake. You don't even need to be at a campground.

    The only problem with clear lake is parking its not a normal sno park so we may come out to nour vehicles covered in plowed snow.

    What do you mean? You would be parking at Skyline Sno Park and hiking in similar to last years hang.
    I think its bigger than Frog Lake's Sno Park.

    Other options are still possible, but we are limited on areas that are plowed

    What's the distance from the parking to the camp?

    If this ends up being our location, about 1/2 mile to the lake then however far to where we set up camp.

    Trillium I don't think will work and the hike in would be a little tough for some.

    Clear Lake campground is FULL of perfect trees and is rather Large.
    Was a bit windy down on the beach but up a little higher was really nice.
    Its my top choice as of now, I would like to do an overnight trip up there soon so I can do the hike from the Skyline snow park and see how that is.

    Heres a few shots of Clear Lake CG
    Looks like a great spot. You should've planted a big stick in the ground next to a fire ring, though, so we can find it under the snow. ;-)
