Description: 
  • The water in the nearby lake is warmer than most in Yukon, making it a popular swimming hole.
  • The campground and nearby recreation site are situated on the lakefront under a dense cover of black and white spruce and willow.
  • An easy 5 km trail jogs around the lake and connects the 2 sites.
  • Many campers make a trip to Keno from here.
