Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Tent campers who seek the solitude and beauty of the wilderness could hardly go wrong visiting the campground at Forked Lake. The rocky, 1,248-acre lake is an ideal boating and fishing spot, though motorboats will find navigating the shallow waters in North Bay treacherous. Indeed, scrape marks on numerous concealed rocks reveal that even shallow-draft canoes often get caught along the shores. Most approaches to sites’ landings or docks are littered with these concealed rocks, warranting a slow pace and cautious eye. Since it is doubtful that boaters would wish to subject their propellers and deeper hulls to these numerous hazards, and the trails between sites are rugged, canoes or kayaks seem the more practical means of getting around the bay and campground in general. Fortunately, campers who don’t own a boat can rent canoes right off a rack next to the boat launch."
