Mosquito Lake State Recreation Site
The park has a few campsites, but no outhouses. The dock at the park provides public access to Mosquito Lake, which offers great fishing, especially for cutthroat trout and Dolly Varden char. The lake fills with migrating ducks in the spring and fall, and trumpeter swans use the lake as a stopover on their migrations. Up to 80 swans have been seen at one time on the lake. In the winter, locals like to ice fish and cross-country ski on the lake and nearby areas.
Drive 27 miles up the Haines Highway and take the turnoff to Mosquito Lake Road. Drive 2.5 miles and look for the turnoff on the right down to the park. (If you drive to where the road dead-ends, you’ve gone a half-mile too far.)
