Stanton Lake is a small lake located in the Nadina River watershed. Access to Stanton Lake is relatively easy, however the access road required four wheel drive with good clearance. Stanton offers nice views of Nadina mountain. The East Gates area was flattened due to a severe wind storm event that occurred in the early 2000’s.

The 2018 Nadina Fire moved through this area. We will post an access update in 2019.
