Relax in the tranquility of this 25 acre picturesque lake nestled in a deep,
wooded valley. Enjoy camping picnicking, fishing, paddle-boating and swimming.
(Currently under renovation with projected completion at the end of 2003,
the Forest Service plans a ribbon cutting in the spring of 2004.) Hike the
Rim Rock trail which meanders through native hardwoods, past the remains
of an old Indian Wall. Take the rock stairway to the valley leading to a
huge rock shelter bluff called Ox-Lot Cave. Pass through “Fat Man’s Misery”,
a narrow passageway through massive cliffs and huge boulders.
