This area is Closed
 

South Skookum Lake is relatively small and is not suitable for boats exceeding 20 feet or motors greater than 15 horsepower. The boat ramp is small and unimproved. Two docks, one of which is accessible, are located near the launch area and provide fishing opportunities for campers who do not have boats. South Baldy lookout, which is still staffed during the summer months, is visible from the campground and is a popular day trip.
