Stayed on the north shore side of the reservoir. Did the "camp in the truck bed" thing. There's a neighborhood on the north shore, so it becomes an early morning of it's mid-week since cars start leaving to head to work. The lake is a nice sight in the morning. The dog loved it.
It lacks trees at most campsites, but that’s ok…it’s easy to get in and out of, the sites are level and every one has a view of the lake.
Its clean, sites are generous (i.e….not on top of each other)
The lake is easy to access by power boat or kayak. I would go back in a minute.
Cell phone service was lacking…it sits down in a valley but then again, I camp to get away from that.
the public toilets are clean and well stocked.
we took the back roads there…they were flat and so well groomed!
There were lots of families there…great place to turn your kids loose and not worry about them
This review is of the red lodge arm campground area. There are a few others at different parts of the park. The draw for this campground is the lake/reservoir. The sites are a decent size but offer very little in terms of vegetation or privacy. If you like to get to know your neighbors this may be the place for you. Other campgrounds in the park such as Cottonwood offer more serene locations. This campground does have a boat ramp, a play structure for the kids and a fish cleaning station.
We stayed on the South Shore and it was clean, quiet and decent fishing!
Fishing is impossible due to all the boats and jet skis. They are very reckless on the water. Just not my cup of tea.
