General Information

Campbell Lake is a narrower lake approximately a mile and a half long, and fairly shallow which often makes for good fly fishing. The lake is surrounded mostly with typical grassland vegetation. The campsite area is nestled in a stand of fir on the southerly shore. The campsite facility is very well done up with a number of good sites.

You should expect to be charged a camping fee at this site. Fishing is usually good in the spring with fish averaging in the one and a half pound range. It can be quite busy in the spring and very busy on weekends.
