In search of more history to Barrett Junction Cafe, Barrett Junction, and Barrett Lake. I came across a couple of links, this one is a video of photos taken through the years of Barrett Junction Cafe & Mercantile created by Run of the World Tours.
Just up the road is the Barrett Lake, though if you plan on visiting you won’t be able to take Barrett Lake Road to get there. The forestry has it blocked off with a no trespassing sign up. However, SD Fish has provided some great information about the fishery. With the drought the lake is a bit low this year, so not sure how good the fishing is there.
