About Lodgepole Campground
Lodgepole Campground is a large facility situated along a scenic highway in the Pintler Ranger District of the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest, the largest national forest in Montana. Across the street is Georgetown Lake, a popular destination for fishing, boating and water sports. Natural Features: Georgetown Lake boasts more than 3,000 acres of cool mountain waters at an elevation of 6,000 feet. It is surrounded by the sometimes snow-covered Flint Creek Range to the north and the Pintlers to the south. Lodgepole Campground derives its name from the long and slender Lodgepole pines, which surround the area. The lake area is also home to abundant wildlife, including moose, elk, white-tailed deer and even bighorn sheep. Recreation: Postcard-perfect Georgetown Lake is a prime destination for fishing and fly fishing with kokanee salmon, rainbow and brook trout being the most sought-after species. Canoeing and boating are also popular activities. Hikers, horseback riders and mountain bikers will find no shortage of trails within a few miles of the campground. Facilities: The campground is conveniently located across the street from Georgetown Lake, though there is no direct lake access from the site. This facility is one of the larger campgrounds in the lake area with 31 units available for tent and RV camping. The roads are paved for smoother access.
