The Haymarsh Lake State Game Area has become locally famous for the wide range of opportunities it has to offer the outdoor enthusiast.
Whether you have come to hunt, fish, camp, or just to view the wildlife, we think you'll find just what you're looking for at the Haymarsh!
The Haymarsh Lake was a series of six small bodies of water until in 1949 the Department of Fish and Game built a concrete dam six feet deep where a beaver dam once stood. The Haymarsh Lake now has about 375 acres of surface water that includes the original six lakes, some 18 to 30 feet deep, surrounded by shallow water, about four to six feet deep.
The dam is about 120 feet long and stands six feet above the spill way. The impoundment offers a large variety of fish including, but not limited to: Pike, Bluegill, Bass, and Perch.
In addition, the campground offers access to some of the best hunting territory in the County. There is an abundance of rabbits, grouse, deer, and much more. Come and see!
The Haymarsh State Game Area campground is first come, first serve and does not allow reservations.
