Crooked Lake Dispersed Campsite

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

Although there is only one campsite on Crooked Lake, the lake is busy with a private resort and many private homes and cabins dotting its lengthy shoreline. Anglers will find good fishing for bluegill, crappie and northern pike, and some small mouth bass are also occasionally caught. Boat access to the lake is by carry-in only, which can be found at the campsite. There are no toilets or drinking water at this site. There is only one primitive campsite on Crooked Lake. It is small (35 ft. by 35 ft.), level and suitable for one family and a trailer. Swimming is considered to be poor. Keep in mind that the boat access must be shared with the public, and anglers may pass through your campsite to access the lake.
