The 3-km long lake offers pleasant canoeing, kayaking, and boating opportunities. Boats can be rented from Jewel Lake Resort at south end of the lake. Swimming can be enjoyed from a lovely small sandy beach. The park’s tranquil campground offers 26 vehicle accessible campsites set in a thick forest of young hemlock, Douglas fir, mature birch, and larch.

Tons of Mosquitoes

Submitted by yas on September 19, 2011

This must really be a paradise for the fishermen - otherwise, I don't see why people would want to tolerate the hordes of mosquitoes that were literally eating us alive! To be fair, the lake is very pretty green color and the area is very tranquil because only electric motors are allowed on the lake. Also, the campground is set in a thick forest and all campsites are well-shaded and secluded. There is a private resort just down the road that sells fishing supplies and other stuff.
