Sayres Lake

A beautiful forested campsite on the shores of Sayres lake.   Sayres has 19 drive-in sites, 12 tenting sites and 3 triple sites (group sites) up top.  There is a  limited day-use area, and an area to hand launch your boat, electric motors only.  There is a steep grade hill for the last 1 km of road and 4wd is recommended.

Sayres Lake will open May 1, 2020

Update for Sayres Lake 2019

Sayres Lake is changing from a fully motorized campsite to a partially motorized campsite.  Sayres is a small packed-in type campsite and due to safety concerns, noise, and dust, ATV’s and off road vehicle traffic will no longer be allowed in the lower campsite/lake area.  Off road vehicle traffic will still be allowed at the group sites #32-40, but not passed that point into the main camping area.

If you wish to use your ATV or off road vehicles while camping at Sayres you will be able to park it at the parking area by the Host site.  You will not be able to bring it into your campsite, with the exception of the group sites #32-40.

These changes are to address safety concerns.  Rocky Point and Rock Creek campsites are in the same area and will remain fully motorized.

Sayres lake now has dedicated RESERVED SITES and dedicated FIRST COME FIRST SERVED sites.  See the map below for the list.
