Birch Lake State Recreation Site

Birch Lake SRA is nestled between a lilypad covered lake and forested wetlands. Boat launch and courtesy dock with ADA Access. No long term docking, approximate 20 minute time limit.Users should bring their own firewood, especially in winter for use in the cabin, since there is not much left to scavenge in the surrounding forest.

The lake is popular with fishers, jet skiers, and water skiers in the summer, and with snow machines and ice fishers in the winter. There is excellent fishing all year for stocked species: rainbow trout, king and silver salmon, grayling, and arctic char. Fishing during the open water months is best from a boat. Ice fishing huts are available for rent.
