Public Access Facilities

Sam Wahl Recreation Area has an excellent dock and fishing pier facility. Restroom facilities are a long walk uphill from the pier area. Shoreline access for bank anglers is limited; there is only one access point and the shoreline is very steep. There are primitive camping areas and places to park self-contained RVs, but no improved camping facilities. Campsites with hookups are available across the road from the entrance at Grubbs Bait and Grill.

For more details, choose a point on the map or a name in the chart below.
