5 Reviews of Lake Elsie Campground
Easy escape

A bit of a drive off I-90 but well worth the the stop. Multiple campsites right along the lake. It might get a bit crowded on summer weekends but multiple sites were vacant when we arrived on a Thursday afternoon in July.

Pretty cool place

Good place if you like to ride your toys. You’ll want to bring good cars because the road gets pretty primitive. Awesome lake for kayaking and paddle boarding.

My Personal Favorite!

This is one of my favorite camping spots. There is a beautiful alpine lake, which is obviously cold spring water. But, you can get away with taking a dip in the summer season! There is really good fishing and ATV trails for MILES through the wilderness! Seriously, one of the most fun places to camp.

The road down is decent, kinda narrow at times. But, I've seen people tow trailers down to the lake before. The road sometimes still has a good foot of snow until about Mid-June, so beware.

Sure a neat little fun place

Roughly 11 miles from where the asphalt ends is this little hidden gem. Narrow road up to the lake but definitely worth it. Tons of riding trails and and a quiet campground.

Mtn top lake!

We stay here often. Easy to drive up to. Any vehicle will do. Dirt road to the top where you will find a lovely little lake with 4-5 camp spots surrounding it. We always catch lots of brooke and rainbow trout and wild life is everywhere! There is a outhouse bathroom but you are on you're own otherwise!
