Spent 2 night here. Many pullout locations. I chose one on the North of Mallard Lake. Also more roads leading north with additional pullouts just check google maps to do a little recon.. Can be pretty busy on weekends with Anglers. You'll probably be up around 7 am just due to fishers drivin by. Not bad for a few days 🏕

camping only permitted by the sign for camping. otherwise corrupt fish and wildlife will violate your rights and try to open your door with you inside. then illegally sieze your gun and assume you are a felon before checking your ID. both gross violations of rights from these anti American " law enforcement " which is really only corruption enforcement.

good spot to spend a night. feels a little sketchy on the road into the wma but there are several pull offs on the gravel road going around the small lake. 1 other camper when i was there. several cars passed, mostly ppl fishing, no one bothered me. the moon rising over the lake was beautiful! would def stop again for a night next time im in the area.

We camped here for a week and had a great time. The lake is beautiful, we only say one other camper or so while we were here. The bugs at night did get pretty bad. Everything went well until last night (Tuesday night), when what we assume was younger locals (about 4 in the vehicle), came driving by at high speeds, playing music loud, yelling at our camper that we weren’t aloud the camp there and needed to leave, etc. they came by 4 or 5 times yelling and continued to drive by between the hours of 8pm and midnight. The website for this area does show that camping is allowed; however, there are no signs posted one way or another (camping allowed vs no camping).

1-2 bars Verizon and ATT. I was able to work remotely here and with a WeBoost, do video calls

very pretty, peaceful spot! i love the trees!

i wanted to, and i was wondering if you could swim here but i didn’t try couldn’t find anything online about it.

not many people drive by but when they do they don’t bother you, even had a police truck drive by as well, and didn’t even stop.

make sure you bring bug spray, as soon as i got here and stepped out of my vehicle the started to swarm me! they are no joke!

Good place for an overnight, we slept by the boat ramp as it was after dark and all the pull offs around the lake looked more exposed than we like. A cop came by at 4am saying they had a call about an abandoned trailer which they think was mistaken for our Jeep… so people are watching basically. :)

This place was awesome! We stayed two nights in a camper van. It’s so beautiful. There are no facilities and the camping spots are just pull offs along the gravel road. Cars drive by every once in a while during the day but everyone seemed friendly and after dark you’re left with the sounds of nature, we didn’t have any cars drive by through the night.
It’s an amazing star gazing spot and a bird watcher’s paradise. Great spot for a night or two.

Even if you’re not camping, it’s worth a drive around the lake. The trees are very cool.

Bugs is not bad at all end october. As described. Amazing beautiful free spot near a lake with lots of fishes jumping out the water. Very calm, you hear mostly nature noise. I really like it. Thanks for sharing. Ps: I was suprised to see some houses where people live before reaching the lake. Might want to keep the gravel sand and speed to a minimum reaching the spot. If you appear to be heading to a rest area, A 30min detour is highly worth it even for the night.

Public lake next to a WMA with some gravel pull off spots. We camped for 2 nights, some locals drive around but no issues. Verizon service is 1-2 bars

Camping is still allowed here. However, if you're coming in the summer, expect swarms upon swarms of biting flies and mosquitos. Picardin or permethrin is a must. Also, do not keep your vehicle doors open too long or it'll fill will mosquitos.

Gorgeous little lake with no road noise though! Would be excellent in the non-buggy months.

Nice camp spot! There were a few vehicles throughout the night, but not too busy. Also a lot of mosquitoes when the sun went down, so bring bug spray. I had reception all night (vzw).

Great spot. Only a couple trucks passed during the evening. Completely quiet other than that. Long gravel road to get to the turnouts but easily accessible by car.
