Lake Mcclellan Recreation Area

Saturday, December 09, 2017

Alt Names

Mcclellan National Grassland, Cibola National Forest, Black Kettle District, Mcclellan Creek

Last Known StatusOpen

Overlooking the shores of Lake Mcclellan, this recreation area offers about ten miles of narrow ATV trails with gradual elevation changes and moderate difficulty. The vegetation ranges from open grasslands to a mixed hardwood forest.

Camping is available and there are 60 sites to choose from, many with electric and water hookups plus direct trail access. Both campground and trails are open year-round but the best time to visit is during the spring and fall months. The lake also has a boat ramp and several picnic sites that offers nice views of the area.
