Camp and Canoe

14 campsites on a small impoundment, which despite its size, attracts a great deal of wildlife. Spring through fall, plovers, sandpipers and geese frolic in the mudflats and swim in the waters. Sharp-tailed grouse nest here, and mule deer, coyote, and red fox also frequent this watering hole.

New Collection


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many trail, parks, and other locations are closed. Those temporary closures may not be reflected on this website. The locations that are open may be very populated and make it difficult to practice social distancing. Please respect all closures and government and CDC orders and recommendations. Maybe now would be a great time to put together a bucket list or an after this ends list. We're all in this together. Stay cautious and stay healthy.

I will be respectful
