Pen Lake – Campsite #12

Pen Lake – Campsite #12

Like many sites in the south of Pen Lake, this campsite is rocky and elevated. The canoe landing requires a bit of a climb to get to the main area of the site, but if you don’t mind the climb, the rest of the campsite should offer everything that you need. Once you’re up, the fire pit and seating is near the edge and exposed to the elements, and there are 3-4 tent spot options that are a bit more sheltered. Other than the climb up, it’s a pretty decent site.
