Great launching off point for Nancy Lake Recreation Area

Great, well maintained campground for a base camp for exploring the Nancy Lake Rec. Area! We hiked on the nearby Red Shirt Lake Trail and caught a ton of small northern pike on Red Shirt Lake. There is a great canoe rental shop in the campground that provides everything you need to get on the water.

A Quiet Night in a Breathtaking Place

We hopped over to one of the three only-accessible-by-boat campsites across the lake. What a treat! With waves gently lapping the shore and views of the mountains and glaciers, it felt like our own little piece of paradise for the weekend. A note on amenities - The campsite had a picnic table and fire ring, but no outhouse/toilet, so be prepared to dig a hole, unlike other campers that stayed here.
