South Rolly Lake Campground
NOTICE: South Rolly Lake Campground is currently CLOSED for all of 2020 due to elevated danger from falling beetle-kill trees. Work is currently underway to clear out hazardous trees.
The recreation area combination of lakes, wetlands, and forests create an ideal habitat for many mammals and birds. Perhaps most noticeable to the summer visitor are water dwellers, especially beaver and waterfowl. Beavers are active in lakes and ponds throughout the park and visitors can see evidence of their work. These animals are vital to maintaining crucial water levels in the ecosystem; their dams and lodges must not be disturbed.
