About the Park

Morton Lake is a best kept secret. The beautiful, rustic campground offers great fishing, swimming and canoeing opportunities. The day-use area is a sandy beach perfect for sunbathing and swimming. Reservations are recommended in the peak season however 50% of this campground is set aside for first come, first serve camping. In addition, this park offers an overflow camping area adjacent to the lake that is a great option for those without reservations in July and August.
