Yankee Springs Recreation Area Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Yankee Springs has both a modern campground and a rustic one, and they are nowhere near each other geographically or in atmosphere. The modern camp on the western side of the park at Gun Lake is big and busy, with campers relatively close to one another. Sites are shaded, but privacy is lacking. The beach area here gets busy with day-users as well. The rustic Deep Lake sites are down a dusty road and spaced out nicely for tent campers and at best are OK for pop-ups. Most are at least partly shaded, and there is a less developed lake access. Twenty-five equestrian sites round out the options. The mountain biking here is the best in the area, and the entire park offers excellent hiking, including a crossing segment of the North Country National Scenic Trail. The geological feature the Devil’s Soup Bowl compels hikers to make the effort to get there. The park counts 9 lakes among its 5,200 acres."
