Beautiful Place to Relax and Enjoy the Loons

Pearch Lake is actually two campground loops. The South Loop is non-motorized, the North is used by ORV enthusiasts, but also has the landing, beach and pier.

Spent several weekends there with my daughter and granddaughter. Located in the middle of a bunch of bass, walleye, panfish, perch and trout lakes, and just south of the White River State (Trout) Fishery Area.

The one negative is the campground is very close to Delta-Drummond Road, and the road plays host to frequent ATV use, which can be quite loud, but Rainbow Lake Wilderness Area is directly across the road, too. So when it's quiet, it's QUIET. Loons on the lake can be quite entertaining except at 3:00 AM.

Easy to find, spacious sites overlooking the lake, nice updated vault latrines, and lots of good fishing nearby, and Drummond is just down the road 7 miles for firewood and supplies.
