Lake No. 3 Campground

The Lake No. 3 dispersed camping area is named for the lake that one of the sites overlooks. This small camping area has 2 hardened campsites, fire rings and picnic tables available for visitors looking for a more secluded camping area. Special Features: Lake No. 3 dispersed campsite is a nice, small site without a lot of amenities. It is within a mile of the Salt Chuck Trail , which brings hikers to an interesting abandoned copper mine site. The campsite is also close to Lake Ellen and No. 3 Lake. Many visitors hike down to these lakes to swim or fish for trout and Dolly Varden. The second growth stands nearby are good spots to pick berries and may offer opportunities to see deer and bears.
