“Favorite spot so far”

Overall Rating

This was our second time staying in Fishlake forest, previously we stayed at Little Cottonwood. We found that with our travel trailer, we prefer boondocking over designated campsites. The previous reviewer for upper kents lake sold us with the pics and mostly good review. We loved the spot and had the lake mostly to ourselves. The weather was beautiful though a little chilly at night as expected. Cell reception with Verizon was just enough to squeak a few phone calls and texts with spotty coverage and no internet. We explored a bit and hiked a bit more. We saw several deer, several beaver and a ton of cows roaming around. Plenty of cow pies just about everywhere we went. We didnt' experience the noise issues described by the previous reviewer though there were some dirt bikes and quads on designated trails.

“Very Nice”

Reviewed Nov 27, 2015

Overall Rating

This is a camping area by a small lake ( Upper Kents ) about 1 mile South of Kents lake. There are numerous dispersed sites located on the east side of FR 137.

Facilities - None ( A pit toilet is located at Kents Lake fishing access about 1 mile North of this dispersed area.

Access - Very easy access along FR 137.

Location - About 3 miles along a dirt road ( FR 137) from Rt. 153. and 13 miles from Beaver. Very nice Mt. area. There are black bears in the area - so protect you food properly.

Cleanliness. - As clean as you, and the people that stayed there prior to you, keep it. There was some trash there that I picked up. Pack out twice as much as you pack in.

Quality - just open areas off the Forest Road. But these are open areas in some very beautiful and remote country.

Noise - There are signs warning off 4-wheelers. But there is no enforcement and it is noisy on weekends.

Fishing - Upper Kents has trout. It was very good fishing when I was there in the late spring but some locals told me the fishing declines later in the summer as the water warms in the shallow lake.

No cell service.
