Three hiking trails originate at Dairy Springs, one
at Double Springs near middle of campground Double
Springs. Those trails lead to scenic overlooks of
nearby Mormon Lake and the surrounding area of
prairies, forests and volcanoes. Wildlife
watching is also a popular activity in this area.
It's a very good place to see hawks, including
northern harriers and ospreys. The area boasts
a healthy population of elk and mule deer, too.
The scenic little mountain resort village of Mormon
Lake is conveniently close to the camp, offering
horseback rides, mountain bike rentals. You'll
also find a country store, service station, and a
picturesque cowboy steak house there.
