Kimball Lake Campground
Kimball Lake Campground is a small campground that is excellent for people who want to camp and fish. Kimball Lake is a small state-managed trout lake stocked with rainbow trout. Because of this special designation, anglers are required to have a fishing license with a trout stamp.
A non-maintained trail circles the lake for shore casting.
Adjacent Mink Lake has a sand swimming beach and barrier free fishing pier.
