Twin Lakes Camp Area

Several picnic tables, an outhouse, fire rings, and ten informal campsites provide a nice spot for primitive camping. Canoeing and fishing for grayling, lake trout, and burbot is available here. Twin Lakes is a great place to view waterfowl and wildlife. A hike of about a half mile to the south and over the ridge will take you to Jack Lake and more beautiful views of the Wrangell Mountains. To the east of this area is the Skookum Volcano formation.

Ridges to the north and south of Twin Lakes are glacial moraines consisting of gravel deposits. These moraines are all that remain of the glaciers that were very extensive in this area during the Wisconsin Glaciation- the last great Ice Age. When the Wisconsin Glaciation was at its peak 18,000 years ago, most of Alaska, Canada, and the northern United States were covered by snow and ice.
