Lake Annette

Many come here to pic­nic, Bar-b-q, play Fris­bee or just soak­ing up the rays as the sun real­ly hits this area. If you are lucky you might see the Ospreys (bird of prey) hunt for their food, they are known to fre­quent the area as I can attest to. Watch­ing them dive into the water and pulling out some­thing you brag about after your fish­ing trip, is some­thing to behold.

great way to spend a hot day

Wild life is of abun­dance, as food attracts ani­mals (please do not feed ani­mals), some get too close for com­fort as the­se are wild ani­mals and very unpre­dictable. Some ani­mals include White­tail deer, Mule deer, Bears and Elk. There is also a cat­a­comb of hik­ing trails that orig­i­nates from this area. The Parks Infor­ma­tion Cen­tre can sup­ply you with free maps.

This area is for day use only and the war­dens will put out your fire if you stay too late, some­thing I do not agree with, but there are van­dals that make it bad for every­one. Please keep area clean for every­one to enjoy.
