Clark Lake Day-Use Area [Wildlife Viewing Area] - U.S. Forest Service Phone: (906) 358-4724. From Watersmeet, travel west on US-2 about 4 miles  to County Road 535. Turn left (south) and continue about 4 miles  to the entrance to Sylvania Wilderness and Recreation Area. As part of the 21,000-acre Sylvania Wilderness  and Recreation Area, this site has tremendous wildlife  viewing potential. The day-use area boasts an 820-acre  lake with an extensive natural sand beach and a magnificent  stand of virgin northern hardwoods, hemlock, and cedar.  The 8-mile Lakeshore Hiking Trail around Clark Lake  offers beautiful scenery and excellent wildlife viewing.  Visitors must register at the entrance station. The stand of large, old trees at this  site attracts an interesting and diverse mixture of  bird life. Barred owls are common here, and while  they are rarely seen during the day, you can often  hear their familiar ”Who-cooks-for-you, who-cooks-for-you-all” cry at night. The crow-size pileated woodpecker, which  has a flaming red crest atop its head, is a common  sight as it prospects for insects beneath the bark  of old trees. Watch and listen for the many woodland  songbirds that live here during summer, including  the red-eyed vireo, blackburnian warbler, black-throated  green warbler, hermit thrush, and ovenbird. There  is an excellent probability of viewing loons on Clark  Lake. Bald eagles and (more infrequently) ospreys  may also be seen flying or perching around the lake,  and broad-winged hawks nest nearby. Little brown bats  are a common sight near dusk on calm summer evenings.  Fishers, cat-size members of the weasel family, are  seen occasionally during winter. Most of the Clark Lake Lakeshore Trail  lies within the designated wilderness area, so groups  of hikers are limited to ten people or fewer. Beautiful  wetland areas may be seen along the trail.
