Overview Service & Activities
About This small lake is in a heavily forested area with adjacent marshland. Interpretive signs at the picnic area describe the common loons that nest here and their habitat. Nesting loons are very sensitive, and signed buoys mark areas closed to the public. Visitors may hike the moderate 1-mile trail to an observation deck. Birders may see common loons, horned grebes, waterfowl, bald eagles, and osprey. Beavers can also be seen. Much of the land north of Murphy Lake is key winter range for white-tailed and mule deer.
