The Cove once operated as a walk-in campground has been converted to a day use area in 2015, complete with an amphitheater. It offers picnicking, swimming, fishing, campfire talks, and serves as a base for hiking on nearby trails. Located on Timothy Lake. Boat ramps available at nearby campgrounds & day use sites.
Spent some time at the day use areas of Timothy Lake, both the main cove and upper arm. It was pretty crowded in both areas, but less at the northern arm. We launched our little dinghy, and cruised the lake. Not as crowded on the water, and lots of birds fishing. After rowing a good piece of the lake, I can tell you it's bigger than it looks. Parking is $5/day, and is good to park at any day use area around the lake. We ended up dispersed camping in a big clearing about a mile from the lake. No crowds, no pay, and a lot of bear sounds at night.
Nice spot to spend the day! Can fish off the dock. Beautiful scenery. Has designated fire pits. Spectacular day to sit and do nothing and bask in nature's beauty.
