Amazing views!

Really amazing views of the lake and mountains across from site 203 and around.

Bathrooms are pretty nice with flush toilets and running water.

There are many accessible sites, bathrooms as well.

Campsites are close and there are a ton of them but the campground is basically empty... we can see…

Quiet with Gorgeous Views

Right on beautiful Theodore Roosevelt Lake. Nice sites, decently spaced (except 204 and 205 are pretty tight), beautiful 360* mountain views. Well kept. Nick, the host, is friendly and helpful. There are no showers, but there are a few flush toilets. No water hookups, but potable water is available…
