Juniper Lake Kayak, Canoe, SUP & Kayak Fishing Information

 One of the treasures of paddling a remote wilderness lake is to witness the sun sinking in the late afternoon and to watch the reflekayak fishing Juniper Lakective images at sunrise on the water surface. Fishing and motorboats are not permitted at Juniper Lake, which reduces most of the park visitors to hikers, paddlers and campers. Eighteen primitive tent sites are scattered throughout the wood-lands and along the shore.

A few campsites are situated on the grassy banks overlooking the lake which provide scenic panoramic views and easy hand launch access. You will have to hand carry your boat a short distance from some of the campsites to reach the lake. I recommend paddling and camping here with a companion due to its remote nature.

Camping is on a first-come, first-served basis and is limited to tent camping only. Early in the season (early to mid July) the road down to the lake front sites may be gated if the rangers feel it is too wet and muddy. The sites are still available, but you must carry everything down almost half a mile.

Fishing is not allowed.
