Vintage Spirit Lake

Vermont’s Photos of Spirit Lake

During the late 1960s and 1970s, Spirit Lake was one of my favorite destinations for Summer or Winter outings. It was relatively close to Longview, and the drive up there was very nice.  There was a nice campground and picnic area at Spirit Lake also. And there were some trout to be caught in the Lake too. Sometimes we hiked part way around the Lake to visit the YMCA camp at Spirit Lake. This camp had a wonderful view of Mt. St. Helens across the Lake. Although it was a very steep hike, it was nice to go to St. Helens Lake during the summertime also.   Photos by Vermont.
