Horseshoe lake?

what's it like to camp there? I always just drive by on my way to Lows lake. Thought it might make an easy car camp spot. Are motorboats allowed there?

Thanks

I'll just take my Jetboil gas stove and not feel guilty. I don't like the noise and extra weight which is why I use a twig stove. I just boil water anyway and rarely have a campfire.

are twig stoves "campfires"?

Hi, I'm going to the Essex chain and I see campfires are forbidden. I always use a little twig stove everyplace else. Would that be OK?
Thanks, Turtle
