Parker Lake is a “seepage” lake, a natural lake fed by precipitation, surface runoff, and groundwater. With no stream outlet, water leaves the lake through groundwater seepage or by evaporation from the lake’s surface. There is a public wayside located on Highway 82 with walking access to the lake. There is no public boat landing, although the Parker Lake Lodge permits boat launching for a fee. The lake is managed by the Parker Lake Association.
