Description

Like a mosaic of stained glass, Payne Lake Recreation Area is refracted by rays of differentiating colors—”colors” being recreational activities in this metaphor. Smeared by two swimming beaches and brushed by miles of nature trails, Payne Lake Recreation Area is a natural canvass worth taking a second-, third-look at. However, it should be noted that it’s eastern campground is closed, for the time being.

Camped here November 2019. Arrived late and set up in the dark. Woke up to discover I was parked by the lake with a view of reflecting fall foliage and mist. Gorgeous location, not many people in Nov. as temps in early morning were low 30s. Hookups included water and electric and there was dump station. (Also tent camping.) Individual shower rooms had good hot water. Only stayed 3 days because temps were dropping to 20s.
