The vibe at Forked Lake Campground
Drop some Forked Lake Campground knowledge on us.
I've done some extensive camping and this was one of the coolest camping experiences!
All sites are available only by hiking or canoeing and have a unique view of Forked Lake. Pack light and compact or be prepared to make multiple trips! Campsites are primitive - looks like each has its own compost toilet and bear box, but no running water. Multiple spots to buy camp wood on the way into the site. The sites are very hidden from one another, but sound travels well across the lake.
The site is a quick drive to the short but difficult Blue Mountain hike, but if you choose to stay in the campgrounds during the day, there is plenty of canoeing. No clear signage about swimming but I saw a few people dip in.
Highly recommend this gem!!
My favorite. Most sites are boat in &/or walk in only. There's 3 sites on islands but really most sites here are great. There are private docks on many sites and all have water access. Compost toilet and outhouses only- theres drinkable water faucet near boat dock.. Some areas have cell phone service. Ranger staff was very helpful.
Afternoon winds kicked otherwise placid lake up a bit during our week there, so try to get gear loaded by noon if youre rowing to site.
