Portage Lakes State Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Portage Lakes State Park is well named. It has eight lakes of various sizes covering a total of 2,034 acres within its borders, compared to just 411 acres of solid ground. Two of the lakes, Turkeyfoot Lake and East Reservoir, allow powerboating for skiing and tubing at certain times of day. The other six are all operated under no-wake rules, with some—such as Nimisila Lake, which surrounds the campground—limited to electric motors only. Boaters will find several private marinas, eight boat launches, boat swim areas and boat rentals around the park."
