The last weekend of September and Snipe Lake Community Campground was empty. This campground is located on the east side of Snipe Lake. Lots of improvements since the last time I was here (Video: Sept 30, 2012)

Fishing is relatively good at Snipe Lake. It has been reported that a 30 lb Northern Pike was caught in the spring of 2007. The lake has been over fished and in recent years even the population of Perch has dwindled.


Editors note: Getting to and out of Snipe Lake Community Campground becomes a challenge when it rains. The gravel roads become very soft and soupy. Would not recommend the south side road from the post office at Sunset House during rain as it is 30km from the highway to the Snipe Lake Community Campground. (Tried that on the way home pulling an RV and had to use 4x4 for about 10km at 20 kmph top speed. Any faster, and the back of RV would slide to the ditch. Most likely I should have used the north side road as that is how I came in. It was shorter but when it was dry, the deep ruts worried me. There were a few times I could hear my skid plate hit bottom of my 3/4 ton GMC truck.
