To dig deeper into that one-with-nature vibe, you’ll have to hoof it by trail or boat in. This spot is designed for water lovers; bring your boat, canoe, rent it onsite (or build your own!). Hit the lake and fish for brook trout, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, bullhead, yellow perch, and pan fish. Dinner is served. We can hear your stress dissipate!

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!!
