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.
