Isolated via a paved but somewhat rough asphalt road, Delintment lake is beautiful but primitive forest campground. Primary trees in the area are pine, with other coniferous trees scattered about. Forest cover is dense enough to afford plenty of shade and cover for the abundant wildlife. The lake is a naturally reproducing trout lake best fished from a small boat or personal float ring, etc. Not big enough for large boats, canoes and kayaks are perfect here. Fishing is fairly productive on small tackle or flies. The lake is rather high in altitude so the nights are cool even in summer. The snow season comes early here so beware of the possibility of snow during late season camping. This area is also very popular with hunters and many use this campground as a base camp during the Fall hunting seasons. Be aware that there are no facilities here outside of a few water pumps and pit toilets. Distance to the nearest towns (Paulina or Hines) are significant and neither is quickly accessed, so arrive with ample food and supplies. Large or long trailers may find difficulty getting sited in the small campground with the rough roads and dense timber. Best suited for tent or small trailer camping.
