We visited in March, there was still snow on the ground and the waters were still iced over. Gorgeous lakes, wildlife, pretty easy hikes. Definitely have some cool campsites that I will be visiting this summer.

When we were little we would come up and rent a cabin that from what I remember were green and white. Are they still there?

If you refer to the Bear Wallow rustic cabins, then..no. They are not green and white and most likely never have been. Brown painted wood with stone's fireplaces.
