Fees to be charged at Willow Lake Campground.

Beginning August 1, an overnight camping fee of $3per vehicle per night will be charged at Willow Lake campground.

Campers should deposit their money in the self service fee tube. The area now has 10 camping sites that can accommodate three vehicles each, and functions as a major staging area for the Arapeen off road vehicle trail.

Day use activities such as fishing and picnicking remain free of charge.

Last fall the Forest Service began to improve Willow Lake campground by installing a new toilet. This summer work continued with the installation of signage for the Arapeen Trail system. This effort is part of the on-going fee demo program that allows all money collected on site to be used to maintain and improve the site.
