With so much room and diversity, visitors can experience a bountiful array of outdoor recreational favorites such as camping, hiking, four-wheeling, horseback riding, skiing, snowshoeing, telemarking, snowboarding, snowmobiling, fishing, hunting, birding, wildlife viewing and geocaching.

I always like making the trek up there. There is a good amount of wildlife and it's nice being near a lake. I like that most sites are fairly secluded, except for a few places. The setup for a tent is nice, but bring a pad. Also, drive g in stakes can be tough... We just find a good spot or re-angle. We always enjoy it there... The weather can get rough, just be prepared.

Wow if you haven't already been here you need to go. We go every summer and camp, fish, hike & ride ATVs. Kids like the Ranger programs and it isn't so crowded that you feel like you are in a campground. Always see tons of wildlife and there are a ton of trails to explore.

I loved the drive thru Arapaho Forrest and Rocky Mountain national park to get there. My wife and I spent the night at the north Michigan lake reservoir. We spent about $30 for one of the greatest experiences in our lives. The mountains, ice fishing while hearing moose in the distance, snowshoeing and building a warm campfire to keep us warm during the winter night. This place is awesome.

Nice views but logging has left it look like a disaster area, missed the moose that are there but it is always hit or miss. Did not take away from the experience
