I really want to emphasize that there is a trail well above the shore line above the lake. You can find it by exiting the camp ground and looking for a small pile of rocks. Initially this trail is about 5-15 feet ABOVE the lake. After about 1/4 mile, you will see an offshoot that goes "up" to the left. This takes you about 20-30 feet above the lake. Using this you will NEVER get your feet week, nor be in the mud. I highly recommend scouting it out the night before, as it is very easy to miss the higher trail in the dark. You most certainly will find it on your return (too late tho). Alltrails has the beginning of the trail dialed in. If you are on the correct trail, it will also take you around the southeast side of the lake without getting into the shore.
