    Toboggan Runs

    by Toughluck Written Apr 29, 2015

    In spite of my visiting most Februaries, I've never been down the run. Mostly because it's weekends only during the freezing months, and I come mid-week. On Sunday, the lodge is slowly emptying from the busy weekend. Book early for a space, and hope you enjoy crowds.

    Lake James

    by Toughluck Written Apr 29, 2015

    Lake James has three basin, each accessible from various areas of the park. If you're at the lodge, there is a grassy lawn down to a boat dock and a small beach. If you're at the campground, the public beach (wide and spacious) is available next to day use parking and picnic areas.

    Summer - fishing, swimming, bird watching, boating, and wave watching.

    Winter - fishing, snowmobiling, people watch and sunsets.

    Oh! I spend 2-4 days each February at the park.

    Winter Covered with Ice - fishing & snowmobiles. Summer fun Surrounding the park How the lakes were formed
