Surrounded by giant ponderosas and picturesque scenery, Elk Lake Resort is a perfect rustic retreat. The restaurant itself serves great meals on a day trip to the lake or a pleasant alternative to campfire hotdogs. The menu is lighter and healthier than you’d expect, and local and sustainable ingredients are used whenever possible. The menu offers a variety of salads, burgers and comfort food favorites labeled as “country gourmet.” The restaurant is scheduled to open for Summer May 26.
