Gull Lake has a boat landing, a community park and center with playground and tennis courts and a campground, but this picturesque little alpine lake may not offer much in the way of a long distance paddle. However, the scenic shoreline, minimal amount of boat traffic, and a quiet atmosphere provide the perfect environment to spend a peaceful afternoon floating amongst an array of scenic splendors. Windsurfing, jet and waterskiing are not permitted on Gull Lake, which reduces the amount of noise and boat congestion.

 Gull Lake is a popular float tube and kayaking angling destination for its trophy size rainbow and Alpers trout. Thls lake may not be very big, but it has large fish plants. 38,000 rainbow trout in the 10 to 12" range, and 10,000 cutthroat fingerlings are planted by the Department of Fish and Game per year. The "Fisherman Trail" extends along the west end of the lake, between the campground entrance and the Gull Meadows walk-on boat loading dock.
