Ok so I had my sights set on marion lake but just found out that they have a permanent fire ban.....me and my hiking buddies are all in our 20's and all have a fetish for ending the day in the woods with a fire and some drinks . so what Im looking for is a lake maybe 100 or 150 miles from portland with a 2 or 3 mile hike and I gotta be able to have a camp fire! Oh yeah and catching some fish would be cool too. open to any suggestions, the distance(both driving and hiking) are aprox. Especially if the lake is worth it! Thanks again for every one that shared there knowledge about marion and especially to bank walker it would of been disasterious if I had made it up there to find out I can't have a fire(I also do a lot of my cooking by fire).
