Description

Launch your boat on Pickerel Lake, just steps from the campground. Don’t have your own? No problem—you can rent a canoe or kayak here! “Pickerel” is a Native American word meaning “where you spear long fish,” so get on board and try your luck at reeling in walleye, crappie, northern pike, perch, and bass. The lake is known for its cool, spring-fed waters, and visitors can take a refreshing dip and dry off on your towel at the beach. Not too shabby!
