Directions: Exit 12 from I-35. Go east on Highway 2 - towards Leon. About 3.25 miles or so, Lakeview Road will be on the left. Lakeview Road takes you along the West side of the lake. There is only one good spot to view the water from this side, and that is at the West end of the dam. The next left, Little River Lake Road, actually goes around to several spots closer to the water, with restrooms, parking and lake access. Taking this road north, the road does a hard right turning into NW 18th st. Follow this for a mile or so and then turn left on 235 th Ave to go the camping and swimming area.
