Wanna spend a few days in fresh mountain air, taking long peaceful hikes, splashing around in the water, and living off the fish you catch yourself? Lindsey Lake Campground is a remote and rustic campground on the shady banks of Lindsey Lake. There are only a few campsites here and a rough road getting into the campground keeps some visitors away. Once you reach camp, you’ll be rewarded with serene and beautiful surroundings.

Road is definitely rough getting in - SUV or Truck would be your best option. Don't recommend driving in via car.

TONS of yellow jackets buzzing all over. Be careful.

Lake is gorgeous!
