Site description: 
  • The lake system is popular for canoe trips. Small bays, islands and peninsulas make it friendly for children and beginners.
  • Snafu is a military acronym for “Situation Normal – All ‘Fouled’ Up.” It was 1 of 2 forest fire crew camps in the late 1950s.
  • Both the lake's Tagish and Tlingit names, Ágáy Méne' and Ghooch Áayi mean "wolf lake", referring to the creek where wolves come to fish.
  • The campground is one of two within Agay Mene Territorial Park.
  • The gate will remain open after service to this campground has ended. Register your stay (payment not required). Bring your own wood and toilet paper and pack out your garbage.
