Amazing Lake

This is one of my son’s and my happy spots! We love hiking around the lake and the campsites are affordable and beautiful. The west side is more open but also dispersed. The East side is less dispersed but more private with thick vegetation between most sites. There are rocky outcrops around most of the lake and a small island. I’ve heard the fishing is good but we’ve never gotten any bites yet… but that’s just a matter of figuring out what lures/bait to use. Many people just park next to the road to fish as eagles and osprey can be seen diving into the lake to catch fish of their own.

Great Lake, good fishing/kayaking

Good secluded campground. Dock to fish on. Not a ski lake

Cute, not super private, but there is only 13 sites.

The spaces were quite large and not very shaded. The lake is nice, but you can't see it from any of the campsites. Lake Ellen West is by far better. If you go down the road a little, there is a beautiful view of the lake. Vault toilets, picnic tables and fire rings are available. There are also dumpsters.
