    Some friends of mine and I like taking our kids on hiking/camping/float trips a couple times a year. I was wondering if the Shady Lake area allowed hunting? We’re thinking of trying that area but don’t want to go into an area where there may be hunters. thanks for the help..

    Hi John–Thanks for your note. No, Shady Lake does not allow hunting. As to more details on the area, the Civilian Conservation Corps developed the Shady Lake Recreation Area in 1937. The area is in a remote mountain setting and the Shady Lake Trail traverses Saline Creek and passes the historic Shady Lake Dam. It continues along the eastern edge of the campground. The trail is ideal for day hiking and mountain bikers may also use the trail. The trail is open year round but the campground is normally closed from Dec-Feb. Hope this helps~
