This is a really interesting State Forest property evolving from a reclamation project of donated land from various coal companies. Now encompassing nearly 9000 acres of woodlands and what it’s best known for, some 120 lakes providing some of the best fishing in the state. The lakes are rich with bass, bluegill, crappy, redear and Airline Lake is even stocked annually with rainbow trout. This is truly a fisherman paradise…but don’t overlook the many other opportunities for mushroom hunting, hiking, horse riding, nature photography and enjoying the wildlife. There are some 100 campsites in three different locations; Narrow Lake, Reservoir 26 and Wampler Lake. Potable water is available in all three areas with and a dump station located at Narrow Lake. Narrow Lake campground is easily accessible via IN-159 and offers 15 year round cabins and several camping sites with electric service with reservations available on Reserve America. Sites on Wampler Lake and Reservoir 26 are all class c and offered as first come – first serve basis with self-serve check in stations for $13. Scout ahead to determine your comfort level as most of these sites are not conducive to larger campers and the gravel access roads are sometimes washboard. This is a little off the beaten path, but if you like a little more remote feel and some stellar fishing; this could be just what makes you smile! Approximately 35 miles south of I-70 or 35 miles west of I-69. Nearby is Goose Pond Fish and Wildlife Area, Minnehaha Fish and Wildlife Area and Shakamak State Park. The town of Linton is 15 minutes for grocery store, restaurants and Walmart. 39°2'42"N, 87°15'37"W
