Forest Road 140 and its spur 132 are a camper’s heaven.  Together they form Dog Town Road.  With literally hundreds of dispersed campsites, mainly along the western end, and an established campground and day-use picnic area, this is a busy road on summer weekends.  Dog Town Lake draws anglers, kayakers, and picnickers.  The name for the lake came from a nearby prairie dog village.  

The road is easy, with one area of hard-bottomed mudholes in the late summer rainy season.  Lined with Ponderosa pines, the trail crosses a few open prairies with nice views.
