Operated by the US Army Corps of Engineers, the Cross Lake Dam and Recreation Center provides excellent recreation opportunities. The construction of the dam at Crosslake raised the water level,making channels between these lakes and forming the Pine River Reservoir, which is better known as the Whitefish Chain of Lakes. This 13,660 acre body of water, with 119 miles of shoreline, provides dozens of interesting bays for pleasure boating and fishing. The Crosslake Campground, nestled among tall pines, is best known for its picturesque sunsets, beautiful beaches, well-maintained campsites, clean restrooms, showers, group picnic shelters, handicap accessible facilities, day use areas and much more. It is located just 10 minutes from shopping and paved bike paths.
