Luck Lake Access Day Use Area

A primitive boat launch and small parking area provide access to the north end of Luck Lake. Special Features: Beautiful scenery and solitude can be found throughout the year at Luck Lake. At low lake levels, a narrow sandy beach along the northern shore provides an easy walking path to Eagle Creek, a popular fishing stream. The shallow lake bottom near the access site provides an enjoyable swimming area. Explore the lake edge with a canoe or kayak and watch for signs of wildlife, or fish the lake for salmon and trout.
