Lake Ottawa Recreation Area & Campground

A 30-minute hike to “Orville’s Beach” on the Ge-Che Trail (primitive) in the Ottawa National Forest will introduce you to one of the most breath-taking natural views in the county. When you return, walk along the shore of this pristine lake, which archeologists affirm contain the remnants of some of the area’s earliest residents: prehistoric Indians dating back to at least 2,000 years. Several site reconstructions have been created from recent archaeological digs sponsored by the U.S. Forest Service.
