About Crawling Valley Campground

Along with its agricultural importance, the reservoir offers a multitude of recreational benefits. Camping, boating, fishing and hunting are some of the activities that take place on or around the lake. Crawling Valley is well known for its excellent fishing.


The reservoir was originally stocked with 700,000 trout to provide a sports fishery, until species such as northern pike became naturally established. As the pike population increased, the trout population decreased. A total of 600,000 walleye fry were stocked in the lake between 1990 and 1993, to supplement the pike population.
