Paradise Park Campground

Area Status: Open

There are 15 campsites on the shores of Paradise Park Lake where you can fish for rainbow trout. You can take Forest Road 296 (a jeep trail) to its end and hike to a number of isolated and lovely little lakes which dot the area to the northeast of Paradise Park. The Deadman Lake Trail is open to hiking and horses and is 8.5 miles long. Drinking water is not provided. Enjoy mountain biking on nearby roads and trails (but not on wilderness trails!). The area north and east of Paradise Park is open to OHV use only on designated routes; the area south and west is fairly unrestricted. Pick up a travel map from the Forest Service.

Near the campground is a rustic, 75-year old guard cabin that is available from June - March (or until snow melts). The cabin features a wood stove for heat and propane cook stove and refrigerator, an outdoor toilet, but no hot water or shower. There is cold water seasonally, but it gets turned off in the winter. The cabin sleeps four in two bunk beds. There is snowmobile access in the winter. Five people are permitted to camp outside the cabin. Other amenities in the cabin include basic pots and pans, mattresses but no linens, table and chairs, and cleaning supplies.
