On the west side of Seeley Lake, this campground and picnic area has a stretch of beach that is a great place for playing in the water or people watching while you relax in the shade of the trees. The campground and picnic area are located where the Clearwater River and Seeley Lake meet.
Bombs away describes the one and only draw back to our visit, and a funny one. Pine cones dropping on the RV. Were the squirrels tossing them? I had to wonder 🤪
A quarter mile down the road that crosses the river is a grove of Western Larch, also known as tamaracks. The oldest tree is 1000 years old (see photo). Watch for signage and a tiny parking lot on the left. More: https://forestservicemuseum.org/exhibits/jim-girard/jim-girard-memorial-grove/
The campground backs up to the lovely Clearwater river with water lilies. Paved. Water spigot. Put toilets. So quiet, we planned to stay one night and have been here 3 so far. Feels like home… barring those pine cones that drop and scare the daylights out of me…
