    Do you have to pay for parking at any of these parking lots? If it’s just one time pay then I’m fine with it but I don’t want to pay for parking multiple times if I’m stopping by a few lakes. Amazing video btw. Driving through Seven Lakes Dr in a few days and didn’t know where to stop, this is exactly what I was looking for.

    Do you need a pass for winter camping/hiking?
    How safe is it to park?
