Loggers Lake Recreation Area

Area Status: Open
This area is Open
 

Located deep in the interior forests of Shannon county, this campground is situated along the south-east shore of 22 acre Logger's Lake. Constructed in 1942, this spring-fed lake is maintained as a fishery, and is a destination for anglers looking for non-motorized boating and quiet bank fishing.

The campground area is located on the southeast lakeshore and all sites have a view of the lake, with only light vegetation in between. There are 14 sites with each site offering a table, fire ring, tent pad, and some offer lantern posts. Drinking water and vault toilets are centrally located. There are two boat ramps, and a barrier-free fishing pier. 

Logger’s Lake offers good fishing for large-mouth bass, sunfish and channel catfish. The Day Use area has a small swim beach, boat ramp, picnic tables, and grills.
