Bolan Lake Campground

Bolan Lake Campground sits along the shores of Bolan Lake, a 12-acre lake sitting high above the Illinois Valley. Campsites are in a dispersed camping area, but are equipped with tables and fire pits.

Large conifers provide shade in the heat of summer months, and the wildflowers are not to be missed in this area in the early summer. 

Bolan Lake Trail #1245, located within the campground, climbs up to the old fire lookout on Bolan Peak.

The lookout is available for rent; reservations must be made at
