Lost Lake Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Lost Lake got its name for having no visible inflow or outlet to the body of water. The water in this lake has nowhere to go, and thus the water has lost its way. Tall white pines and other evergreens border the deep, cool lake, which is fed by underground springs, making a good place even better. Many of these trees are old growth. A hiking trail runs in their shadows. At Lost Lake, you can camp in a fine shoreline setting and enjoy these natural assets and others concentrated in the area. The campsites are strung along a road running atop a low rise by the lake. Most campsites are well shaded. The sites abutting the lake dip toward the water. Not all are perfectly level. Sixteen of the 27 campsites face Lost Lake. Campsite 1 is narrow, open, and grassy, and it is usually the last to be taken. A forest of maples, aspens, birches, and a few evergreens begins just past this site. Campsite 7 is large and inside the loop.

Beyond here, many campsites bordering the lake are two-tiered—the parking area is on one level and the tent site, picnic table, and fire ring are just a short walk below. These two-tiered sites are mostly large and close to the lake with short paths meeting a hiking trail that runs parallel to the shoreline between the water and the campsites."
