    I know Hlydon is planning a trip for later in the month in October but I wanted to plan for something early, I found this great spot not a lot of people know about see link below this would be camping and fishing. I have a canoe but I am not experienced with it so I would need an experienced driver lol. I emailed my contact at Waynes they told me they stock the lake every year with trout. There is primitive camping aloud but the trails are rough.

    Of course I bring everything but the kitchen sink so we won't starve and should be a really fun trip.

    Email from Waynes.

    Good Morning Jim,


    Timbre Ridge Lake is stocked early spring of each year by the ODNR with trout. Additionally, primitive/dispersed/backwoods camping is allowed in this area, with the exceptions of the parking area and the dam, as detailed in the link below.
