Sooo many memories!!!

Washington lake was my childhood campground! I’ve been back many times over the years. It’s since been paved and all sorts of amenities are available. As a kid it was just a dirt campground, but has been much improved since. Picnic tables. Fire pits. Electric hookups. Etc.

The lake is fairly large, full of fish, and fun to canoe around! All around the lake are amazing dispersed camping spots, and trails connecting to other lakes.

Our YouTube channel Intro was filmed on location at Washington Lake! Enjoy
