About: Dogtown Lake got its name from the extensive prairie dog towns that once covered open areas near the lake. In spite of the name, this medium-sized body of water is actually surrounded by trees. Today, you’ll find fewer prairie dogs than forest visitors, who’ve come to camp and fish for the trout, crappies, and channel cats stocked here. Near the lake, visitors can enjoy a guided nature trail and a hiking trail that leads to a scenic overlook of the area from the top of nearby Davenport Hill. The campground is approximately 6.5 miles south and east of Williams and has a spectacular view of Bill Williams Mountain.
