Wakeley Lake Foot Travel Area

Wakeley Lake Foot Travel Area

A moderately sized area to take a hike or view wildlife, this area also offers canoeing opportunities. The lake tapers out into a swampy marsh area along the shoreline in some areas. Visitors to the area will be treated to a forested setting that varies from tag alder and conifer swamps to upland jack and white pine mixed with oak. The 2,100 acres area is habitat for loons and eagles and visitors may view loons nesting from March 1 to July 15. Please respect wildlife and view from a distance. Fishing is limited to June 15 to August 31, catch and release using artificial lures only.
