Pickerel Lake State Forest Campground Reopens
The Department of Natural Resources announced today that the necessary well work has been completed at Pickerel Lake State Forest Campground and all campground loops are now open. A portion of this campground had been closed last summer due to well problems.
The campground is located in the Pigeon River Country State Forest (PRCSF) in Otsego County, via Sturgeon Valley Road northeast of Vanderbilt. The adjacent Pickerel Lake Pathway and boat launch are also open.
