Folly Lake (17 km from campground)

Folly Lake is a spring-fed lake of more than 200 surface acres. It is one mile long and a half of a mile wide. Folly Lake formed 10,000 years ago when melting waters from glaciers dammed up both ends of an ancient mountain pass with rock debris. Today the dams and a quarry that nearly surrounds the lake are an available source of gravel and rock for the construction of roads.

The name "Folly" came from early lake settlers' dislike of a neighbor. The word folly was given to a place described as an "unfortunate destination." In this instance, it was a reference to a man named Fleming. First the area was called "Fleming Folly" but later evolved into "The Folly." It also appears on old maps as "Fawleig" and "Folleigh.
