Remote and Quiet

Nice are to get away from it all. Road is best traveled with AWD-4WD. Campgrounds are nice and level for tents.

Remote

The road is pretty long, and narrow. Not advisable for pulling a large trailer. Every time we have went there is only one other occupied site. The lake is for non motorized water crafts only. Perfect for first time swimmers. Very quite.

Beautiful, Serene, Off the beaten path

It is a very off the beaten path, tucked away in the woods, true getaway from the busy city life. Travel south on 278 from Wisdom, MT and take the chance on an 18 mile gravel road to find a place only you see in pictures and read about in magazines. Drive through open cattle ranges and find a beautiful campground nestled up to 2 small lakes connected by a shallow channel. Clear water to see the bottom where it's shallow enough. No motorized boats allowed, so bring your own kayak or canoe and a fishing pole or two to enjoy the refreshing waters at the bottom of the mountains. Even in July, you can see snow atop the mountains on the Montana-Idaho border.

  • Large, open water front spaces to set up "shop"
  • Site 10 had room for 3 tents, 3 SUVs, 1 picnic table + extra side table, fire ring/grill, canoe, chairs around fire and shoreline, laundry lines
  • Not crowded (maybe 5 sites taken when we were there)
  • Bathrooms are clean (but no locks or hand sanitzer…at least the one I used)
  • Water available
  • One bear storage container at front entrance
  • Must pack up and take out your own trash (no bear proof trash cans)
  • Fire rings with grills available

Breathtaking and cold

The mosquitos are terrible so bring lots of deet, and in July it gets to be around 30* F at night so bring lots of extra blankets.
