This forested area, bordering scenic Scopan Lake, attracts visitors who enjoy paddling, hunting, fishing, birding and camping in a semi-remote setting. Water access campsites on the lake shore and snowmobile trails through the woods are the most popular destinations for visitors. Located between Presque Isle and Ashland, this 16,700-acre reserve contains some of the most rugged terrain in the region. Some of the reserves features include 1,400-foot Scopan Mountain; 9.5 miles of shoreline on Scopan Lake; low hills; wetlands; brooks; and a small pond.
