Beautiful setting

What a beautiful setting on Stanley Lake. Nice sites. A few minutes into the town of Stanley. Good fishing.

Stanley Lake

Stanley Lake is a beautiful and amazing place..Campsite are close to lake.our site was listed as double but it was qyute bug enough fir 2 trailers sude by side..However we made it work by angling them.Great scenery!

Go if you enjoy the sound of chainsaws all day

Nice campground but they are allowing tree harvesting in the campground. We were there for 5 days and left early because all we heard all day were commercial tree harvesting with load chainsaws and tree moving equipment. Pretty much ruined the atmosphere of the campground

My Favorite Place

Excellent as always.

Inlet Campground

If you’re looking to stay away from the crowds of Redfish Lake, grab a spot at Inlet campground! While this isn’t always the easiest—no reservations, first come, first serve—it always ends up being my favorite place to camp in the Stanley area. Sites right on the water with incredible views over the glassy lake, looking up at McGown peak.

Love this place!!!!

This is by far one of my favorite places to camp. Smaller than the Redfish Lake and a lot less traffic. Great small lake for fishing and lake kayaking. LOTS of hiking in the Sawtooth Mtn area. Town of Stanley is near but not too close. Love the beauty of the area.

Close to some glorious scenery

Loved this campspot. It's definitely possible to get some privacy with these sites, plus the nearby hikes are fantastic! Beautiful scenery, plus many other activities to do on the water. Definitely a good spot.

Next to a beautiful lake and great hiking!

The campground is pretty, lots of trees. The sites were fairly spaced out, neighbors weren't too close. The vault toilets were pretty clean. The host was really nice and really looked after the place. The lake is fantastic! So clear and blue! The scenery is amazing.. Perfect for kayaking, paddle boarding, and swimming. We also hiked to bridal vail falls, 8 miles round trip from the Stanley Lake trailhead.

Stanley Lake Sunsets don't disappoint!

Campground is clean, group space is nice and spacious and has access to a great boat dock, hiking trails and some local secrets you will have to find yourself ;)
