Spectacle Lake Campground is in need of a camp host for the summer
With a 500-foot swim beach and the crystal clear Lake, Spectacle Lake campground is a family favorite. Relax and enjoy fishing for largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, rock bass, perch and pumpkinseed in Spectacle Lake or hike the trail to Kentuck Lake. This 2.5 mile trail utilizes part of the old Thunder Lake Railroad bed and is a pleasant hike.
There are 34 campsites at Spectacle Lake. Sites can be used for tents and RV camping. Each site has a campfire ring and picnic table. Vault toilets and drinking water are also available. The campground has trash collection and a recycling area.
