Nice roomy BLM Campground

This is a nice large campground. Large sites with large parking areas. Tent only area has covered picnic tables. Boat launch for those wanting to enjoy the Hauser Lake. A short paved trail leads to a small swim area with a sheltered picnic table. A paved trail goes around most of the campground and trails lead to the nearby Clark's Bay recreation area which has a large swim area and volleyball courts and shelters. A trail also leads to Two Camp Vista with plenty of information on the Lewis and Clark journey through the area. If you like to geocache, several are available in the area.
