There are several lakes near us, one of which it seems like nobody goes to. We decided to give it a try as a day trip. First we called, the lady at the visitors center told us hardly nobody goes out there because part of the drive out is unpaved, which shouldn't really be a problem we thought, and she also told us she didn't want to discourage us from coming. Well...I can say I've now been to Apache Lake, it was lovely, barely anyone there, and I will NEVER go again! It was the most uncomfortable car ride ever. The road was SO bumpy, it took an hou and a half to drive the eight unpaved miles. We did enjoy our time there, and picnic, and privacy...didn't so much enjoy the trip home. BUT, I can say- I've been to Apache Lake!
