It doesn't seem like the management does much at all to enforce rules but if you like canoeing, kayaking, or paddleboarding, and or fishing this is a great place to go.

Castle Mountain Recreation (aka Wellington Lake / Reservoir) is somewhat remote given that the roads that lead to it are dirt and fairly washboard enhanced which compels one to take in the scenery. Ensure that you bring all that you’ll need as the nearest store is ~ 1hr away. Once you’ve arrived the check in is painless. On a popular... More
