Triangle Lake Campsite


Area Status: Open

Located in the heart of the Ironjaw Semi-Primitive Area, Triangle Lake is managed for both motorized and non-motorized uses and our management efforts seek to provide for quiet, peaceful recreation opportunities in a semi-primitive setting. Both campsites on Triangle Lake (169 acres) are located on the non-motorized Pine Marten Run Trail, which is open to hiking, mountain biking and horse back riding. There is no drinking water at these campsites. A boat access and parking area for day use is located at Site #1. This access is very sandy and turn-around space is limited. Carry-in access is recommended. There is no boat access at site #2. Triangle Lake is a good fishing lake with a nice population of northern pike, small mouth bass, bluegills, crappie and perch.
