Miller Lake

Miller Lake is far removed from urban areas, and therefore is rarely crowded. Yet it’s easily reachable with a car. The Digit Point campground is a great camping spot.

Miller Lake is a key habitat for the Miller Lake lamprey, a species once thought to be extinct following an effort to rid the lake of “trash fish” in the 1950s. About 10 years ago biologists discovered a tiny remnant population, and officials have since worked to restore habitat for the eel-like creatures.
