Robinson Lake Brook Trout

Cleaned and Ready to Cook

Nothing but the best: a fresh caught brookie for the fry pan. Open fire cooking on cast iron brings not only great flavors but memorable taste. Hard to beat when it’s all natural. Now that’s organic.

This view from the boat launch, half a mile away from the campground says it all: anticipation of an exciting day of great fishing

A beautiful place to be yourself

Need to get away? Need some place quiet where you can just think things through? Robinson Lake located less than five miles from the Idaho/Canadian border crossing of Eastport on Highway 95 is well worth the drive. Talk about a get-away. This well-kept campground with clean facilities, manicured hiking trails and excellent boat launch is a destination place all its own. No power motors, it’s either kayaks, canoes, rowing or electric motors only. That means it’s (quiet)…you can whisper that for better effect.

Reinforced sand steps keep the steep bank from being eroded by foot traffice. Those steps are wide enough for a wheel chair assisted by an attendee as well.

Part of what makes Robinson Lake so special is that you don’t see the well-kept campground from the water. There’s a huge natural berm leftover from glacial times that isolates camping from fishing. That means is more quiet on both sides. And it makes for greater anticipation, translate that into excitement, if you moor your boat or come down to the dock for casting.
Looking out toward the bay where the boat launch is, you get a sense of the beauty and the quiet afforded by that natural earth berm on the righthand side of this forested shoreline.
