Kentuck Lake Campground may have a campground host opportunity for 2019
Early settlers from Kentucky gave the name to Kentuck Lake in a stand of maple. The 955-acre lake is popular with anglers and has abundant walleye, bass, crappies and panfish. Kentuck Lake is connected to Spectacle Lake Campground by a scenic 2.5 mile long hiking trail.
There are 31 campsites available at Kentuck Lake. Sites can be used for tents and RV camping. Each site has a campfire ring and a picnic table. Vault toilets and drinking water are also available. The campground has trash collection and a recycling area. Fuel, fishing supplies, firewood, ice, and restaurants are in nearby Eagle River which is 16 miles away.
General duties of a campground host include:
Campground hosts will serve as the first contact many campers will have with representing the Forest Service. The experience should leave campers with a positive attitude.
