Fullerton Mill Trail

Fullerton Lake Recreation Complex is home to the historic town of Fullerton and Fullerton Sawmill. Approximately 5,000 residents lived in Fullerton between 1907 and 1927, and daily life revolved around the steam whistle of the Fullerton Sawmill, foundations and ruins of which can still be seen on the 1.6 mile Fullerton Mill Trail.

Today, the Fullerton Lake Recreation Complex has a campsite with fire rings and grills, flush toilets, and access to drinking water. It is a perfect place to spend the day hiking the historic Fullerton Mill Trail, fishing from the banks of the lake, or boating with non-motorized watercraft.
