This Campground was developed in the 1930s and 40s by the Civilian Conservation Corps. The old Guard Station at the entrance was built in 1941 which adds to the character of the campground. The campground is located next to Lost Lake which hosts a pair of Common Loons and Canada geese. There are 18 campsites, (14 single sites, and 4 doubles) with picnic tables and fire rings.
A large group site is available through the Recreation.gov reservation system.
A day use Picnic site, Swim beach, Ampitheater, and Boat Launch are also available. Water and garbage service are available as well. Three toilet facilities service the campground. Two organization camps border the campground. A Campground Host is on site during the season. This is a Fee site.
This place is amazing to disconnect from the world yet still have a clean environment. I have been coming here my whole life and still it owns my heart. Most of the toilets are vault with one near the beach that has running water. The sites are mostly level and clear of brush. There are single and double units available too. The fishing is great, but the floating dock on the beach needs some major upkeep! Some great hikes can be had all from the campground. We will most definitely return. There is also a Kiwanis group camp at this campground, so depending on who has it rented it can be fairly noisy & busy during the day.
I’ve gone to Lost Lake a few times this year and it’s always such a great place to camp. The road coming in is much less bumpy than it was earlier in the year. Only bummer this time was of course the burn ban, but we all still had a great time. There’s nothing better than getting out of the city for the weekend, and this spot is always my favorite destination.
Beautiful blue water! A few open spots with fire rings around the base of the lake. Quite and very peaceful! The only thing you can hear is the sound of lost lake river running and echoing threw the surrounding hills. Great veiws of noble knob! Lots of fish jumping 24/7! Worth the climb!
