7 Reviews of Beaverhead National Forest Wade Lake Campground and Picnic Area

Crystal clear lake, good fishing, easy to get your boat in, group sites, day sites, and a rental shop what more can you ask for? A great spot have camped here many of times! Highly recommend!

Quiet and pretty

$10.00 to stay 2 nights I believe. Restrooms were clean. Fishing at Wade lake was ok, as well as Cliff Lake.

Moose, pronghorns, birding and more

Wide open spaces and mountain views, lots of wildlife. Simple clean and small campground but lots to do in the area to enjoy the nature. There’s also a resort with fancy cabins very nearby---make sure you know which you want. Not too far from Yellowstone, in case you are desperate for a camp site.

Tropics in the Mountains

Turquoise waters and white sandy beaches – surrounded by mountains in the middle of Montana, this place has absolutely stunning scenery. Cliff and Wade Lakes are two medium sized lakes with multiple campground sites along both lakes. Camping fee is $10/night, bathrooms, a marina and store to rent kayaks/paddleboards, both single and group use sites. Cell service at the top of the mountain when driving in but no service down by the lakes. There are many campsites, but this a very popular destination and sites fill up quickly. I recommend getting there before 2pm to grab a site!

Beautiful and Off The Beaten Path

A bit of dirt road driving gets you off the main highway and to two of the most beautifully colored blue lakes I have seen! The campground itself is small and primitive, making for a very nice and relaxing experience.

Great hidden location

If your one of the lucky few to find this location and get a spot you may have found a peek into heaven. The lake is so clear and blue at the sametime it's amazing. Not may places compair to this.

Wade lake is gorgeous!! Crystal clear waters and only a few camping spots so it's not over crowded. Bring a kayak or canoe and paddle around the amazing blue water!
