Often uploaded, but you need to see these lakes for yourself. Moose are frequent to these parts.

Lower lake area has a lot of camping and chilling areas. Avoid heavy traffic in early/late hours or during shoulder seasons.

Stay on the trail during the winter months. Up towards the lake it can be belly button deep if you step off the trail!
