Recreation

The lake is popular with fishers, jet-skiers, and water skiers in the summer, and with snow-machiners and ice fishers in the winter. There is excellent fishing all year for stocked species: rainbow trout, king and silver salmon, grayling, and arctic char. Fishing during the open water months is best from a boat. Ice fishing huts are available for rent. Click here for more information on the Birch Lake Ice Huts.

  • Users should bring their own firewood, especially in winter for use in the cabin, since there is not much left to scavenge in the surrounding forest.
  • The road to the lake (ice fishing huts) and the cabin is not plowed in the winter, so a 4-wheel-drive is advisable. It is only a couple hundred feet from the plowed access road to the lake and cabin.
