    Route Description for Lost Lake Campground Walk

    If you are camping in the Lost Lake area and are looking to get out and enjoy a relaxing stroll, then the Lost Lake Campground Walk is a great option. This route simply utilizes the paved pathways of the campground to pass through some sections of light forest cover, so if you are looking for a longer, more scenic route, you should definitely explore the nearby Three Lakes Trail.

    Setting out from the trailhead, you will follow the path as it leads to the southwest and offers some lovely views across the waters of Lost Lake Slough. Here, the trail will leave the lake behind, before passing through a stretch of woodland terrain. After reaching the endpoint of the route, simply follow the same path to return pas the lake on the way to the trailhead.
