Scuitto Lake is one of our favorite lakes to paddle. There is a nice Rec site with a good boat launch on the east shore of the lake, just off the Scuitto Lake Forest Service Road. On an early May morning we paddled our kayaks out onto the lake following the shoreline in a clockwise loop.
On the western shoreline were a number of western painted turtles who have crawled up onto waterlogged perches to bask in the morning sun.
After paddling around the lake (5.7 km), I went back out for another shorter loop around the island and back. We usually return for another paddle in early September when pelicans and herons are on Scuitto and Campbell Lake.
