There are only 15 sites at this non-reservable campground but there is another private campground within 1/4 mile called the lost resort that is wonderful. You can hike 3.1 miles out to the pristine beach then walk 3 miles along the beach and another 3...More

This lake has a strange feel to it. The water is rust color. Minimal wild life. We paddled to Gardeners island and walked around it. No animal trails or scat. Seemed odd. Did enjoy paddling to a different area. Found the trail head to hike...More
