Description

The word "placid" doesn't usually carry an exciting connotation, but you'll be at a great advantage at Placid Lake Campground. The calm waters provide the perfect backdrop for water skiing, kayaking, and catching some nice fat fish. With a swimming hole on the far north end of the park and a boat launch further down, Placid Lake does anything but stay still.
