Calderwood lake has new camping ammenities ! This spring (2010) 3 new camping areas were built along the lakeshore and are available to the public on a first come first served basis. All three of the new areas have picnic tables, lantern stands, and level 8 by 8 tent platforms. If you are planning an overnight trip to this lake the available campsites are as follows :

-Roadside camping along the lakeshore before you reach the boat ramp(there is only one boat ramp)

- At the mouth of Slickrock creek, all the way to the back of the cove there is a flat area on the left side that will accomadate a tent or two. The cove is very shallow and access is limited.

- There are two new sites about 3/4 of a mile past Slickrock creek cove on the left side of the lake. The first one has Large trees around it and is the only primitive site on the lake that can accomodate two tents. The second one is slightly hidden and has a very steep hill to climb from the water to the site (about 60 feet).

- The third new site is almost down to the dam on the right side at the back of a short cove. It has a small stream running next to it and easy access and boat protection from whatever small waves might build up on the lake.



There is also a new portage dock at the dam and well constructed staircase that leads below the dam. I found this very useful to access the area below the dam by foot to fish this remote water (full of smallies!!!)



Hope this helps someone who might be planning a trip over to this beautiful little lake !
