Hemlock Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Medicine Lake is beautiful. Hemlock Campground is the first of the three campgrounds you come to on the east side of the lake. After Hemlock you reach A. H. Hogue, and then Medicine Lake. All three are fine campgrounds. Hemlock is more geared to tents, with fewer flat places to park RVs. A. H. Hogue is a little flatter but still favors tents. The flat Medicine Lake Campground attracts the majority of the RVs and trailers.

Hemlock Campground is nearest the beach and boat launch. God knows how, but the beach is composed of actual white sand. It even has a natural kiddie pool, protected by a sandbar. Medicine Lake does allow motorboats, but felicitously, there are specific rules and times for water-skiers and motorboat use (check the current rules posted on the bulletin board). This leaves times when anglers are free to troll for the thousands of trout stocked in the lake every year."
