Brighton Recreation Area Professional Review and Guide
"With a number of lakes spread throughout its 4,947 acres, Brighton Recreation Area is great for fishing and other water activities. A range of hills and forest around the lakes, as well as some marshy lowlands, offer miles of hiking, mountain biking, and horse trails. The 2 rustic campgrounds are close to lakes and are well separated from the modern, electrical sites, which tend to be shadeless and popular with RVs. The water draws a variety of bird species, and the beach is popular with families."
