Bigelow Creek feeds into Twinwood Lake next to the campground and creates a good current in the lake. Ice fishing is a very popular on this lake. This beautiful area is forested with white pine and provides ample opportunity for wildlife viewing. Swans frequent the lake, and eagles have historically nested in the area. Waterfowl are plentiful and this is a popular area for hunting and fishing in season.
