This tiny campground sits at the west end of the 75.5-acre Lake Ellen. With just five wooded campsites and an abundance of privacy, Lake Ellen West is perfect for the reclusive naturalist, fed-up city dweller, or criminal on the run. The swimming is fantastic and wildlife sightings include bald eagles, osprey, beaver, and loons. Amenities are a bit lacking, but you can make use of the nearby boat launch and a primitive outhouse. Bring your own drinking water, and don’t forget your fishing pole; the fish in Lake Ellen are VERY friendly!
