Idleback Lake

Idleback Lake

Location Overview

Drive up Carmi past the hospital, keep going past the racetrack, turn right at the sign that has the word “Moose” on it and keep on going up the dirt road past the cattle gates. It seems like a long way up. Several tight 30 kph turns, washboards and some loose gravel. Nice lake. No motors allowed on the lake. Camping up to 14 days is allowed. Pack out what you pack in. There are a couple of outhouses. No services. Bad cellular reception.
