Rock Lake

Rock Lake

How to Get There

From the intersection of Route 30 and Route 28 in Indian Lake follow Route 28/30 toward Blue Mountain Lake for 6.0 miles to the trailhead on the right.


The Lake is a widening of the Rock River which, from the lake, can be paddled up or down stream for a bit. Be aware that Rock River does have rapids and shallow waters in many sections; don't go any further than your ability allows you. The west side of the lake has some outstanding wetlands with superb birding opportunities. On the eastern/northeastern shore be sure to scope out the sand beaches and go for a quick dip in the cooling waters.

Type of Launch

Dirt and a bit rocky

Type of Carry

0.85 mile carry over rough footing and a narrow trail. Best for a light weight canoe or kayak that can be carried.

Type of Water

This is a rather large body of water and not well-sheltered. However it does tend to remain calm under most conditions.
