We love to camp here at Grizzley Camp Ground when lake level is still high. Resort has the best soft serve ice cream around. We generally camp at this lake 1-3 times a year.

We recently spent a few days at Howard Prairie where we thoroughly enjoyed a boat ride on this beautiful lake as well as some hiking around the lake. The campgrounds are maintained very well by the staff, which is much appreciated!
