Not sure if this is too late or not but Lake of the Falls is an amazing hike. The trail is a little washed out but not too hard to follow. There are a lot of detours some needed, some not so much if the creek is low you can walk the creek bed and avoid some of the detours which are sketchy. While hiking up there are a lot of spots along the trail if you do not want to hike all the way up in one day and up top there are a lot of campsites along the lake shore. I recommend following the trail as the third campsite in is on a nook that jets out onto the lake and the view is absolutely amazing. The picture below was just outside of the tent. It was a little open there but worth it, but if it is windy there are a few spots a little more sheltered in the lakes.
