Drive To The High-Altitude Lake Cleveland And Escape For The Day To The Idaho Mountains

Nothing beats an escape to the mountains when you feel like surrounding yourself with Idaho’s natural beauty. Sitting at 8,300-feet above sea level, Lake Cleveland is a high-altitude lake that you can actually drive to. Boasting views you’d typically only experience after a grueling hike, finding this lake is well worth the drive! It’s even home to a handful of campsites, so make a weekend of it, pack the canoe, and head out to this incredible alpine lake this summer.
