Yurts At The Lake

The walk-in campround has undergone a transformation during the last six months. The point at Segment 7 used to be a walk-in campground for tent campers. Campers parked at a nearby parking lot and carried their gear into a campsite. The park has now replaced the tent camping with five ‘yurts’ that are reached along a graveled pathway from the parking lot. Each yurt is an insulated single room accommodation with electricity and a skylight and furnished with a couple of bunk beds, a futon, a small table and a couple of chairs. Each yurt has and entrance deck off a graveled area with a picnic table and BBQ grill. Each also has a deck that overlooks the water furnished with a couple of Adirondack chairs and a table. A great place to sit out.
