Glendalough DNR

Camped here in 2011. The cart provided is pretty large and I was able to make it to my site in one trip. None of the sites are terrible except #13 which feels like cabin #12 is thisclosetoyou. Stayed at #17, but would chose #24 next time. Each site has a bench with space to store things in. There is no access to the lake from the campsites since they are on a hill. Bring the bugspray as mosquitos and woodticks were prevalent. The trails here are all very nice. I enjoyed seeing the lakes and all the wildflowers.

Standard view on the Prairie Hill trail.  Farms all around.

Canoe site #29.  This one was closest to the water.

Molly Stark Lake from the fishing pier

Dog Cemetery- the land had one point been used for hunting and these are some of the hunting dogs they owned.

View of Lake Blanche.  Apparently some guy built a house here in the 1930's and named the site Glendalough because it reminded him of Ireland.  Yeah...I didn't really see it either.
