Alerts: Due to invasive insects that are decimating the forestry, Price Lake does not allow outside wood for campfires, etc. Only local firewood is allowed. Forestry in this area consists of hemlock, white pine, oak, hickory and birch trees.
Plants can include laurel, soloman’s seal, and mayapple. One interesting fungi can be found here: the jack-o’-lantern mushroom (Omphalotus illudens), a mushroom that literally “glows in the dark”.
Wildlife can include beavers, bobcats, otters, and more.
Fishing can be done from non-motorized boats, and canoe rentals are available. There is also a dock available.
