Lake John

Lake John is not dead and the fish are fatter than I've ever seen. One fifteen incher I caught yesterday must have weighed two pounds. Trolling is good right now but as always you spend as much time taking weeds off your troll as you do fishing. The dirt portion of the road going in is as nice as I've ever seen it, but of course it is dusty and dry. Lots of antelope near the lake and the aspen viewing toward State Forest State Park is fantastic.

Yes they do. Most have firepits. No fees or reservations that I know of.

There is dispersed camping at the lake or sites with hookups available via the lake John resort. They are good folks!
