Your awareness of your surroundings in the forest is all too important. Be vigilant!
Finnon Lake campground is open - The spillway bridge has been replaced and is large enough to support motor homes. Fishing is allowed but is catch and release, no live bait, lures only; click HERE for the campsite map, an on-line reservation form, and contact information.
Take advantage of the increased water depths while it lasts before the dry summer months. Water increase thanks to the latest series of storms during the winter of 2016 - 2017.
