Amazing views

Sullivan lake has amazing views. The water is clear. The mountains are beyond gorgeous. About 15 mins from metaline falls is a cave that you can take free guided tours. From the cave it's a small hike to Canada. This area is beautiful and definitely an area you would want to book ahead of time.…

About This Campground

Noisy Creek Campground is located at the south end of Sullivan Lake. The campground is a perfect getaway just 20 miles from the US-Canada border. Campsites are set back from the lake. Beyond the campground are scenic mountains where hiking is popular. Fishing, swimming and boating are favorite activities.

Recreation

The Sullivan Lake Basin provides campers with opportunities for swimming, fishing, boating and hiking. Common fish species in the lake include burbot (ling cod) and Kokanee salmon. Fishing in this lake is most successful from a boat. Canoeing, kayaking and paddle boarding are among the water sports popular on the lake. 

Two major hiking trails can be accessed directly from the campground. The Lakeshore Trail is a designated National Scenic Trail that runs along the eastern shore of the lake. This 4.2 mile trail offers viewpoints of the lake and is a popular day-hike for all ages. The Noisy Creek Trail follows along the creek for two miles, and then veers sharply upslope to the top of Hall Mountain.

There are rich opportunities for bird watching and wildlife viewing in general in the area. Individual animals from the Hall Mountain bighorn sheep herd sometimes pass through the campground. Cougars, bobcats and black bears can all be seen in the local area.

Facilities

Campsites are pleasant and within walking distance of the lake and swimming area. Amenities include a picnic area, boat ramp, picnic tables, fire rings, vault toilets, drinking water and garbage service.

Natural Features

Sullivan Lake covers 1,291 acres and has a depth of 320 feet. Hall Mountain rises abruptly from the eastern shore of the lake to a height of over 6000 feet. Abundant western larch, aspen and cottonwood trees create vibrant colors in the area during the fall.

Nearby Attractions

Sullivan Lake is about four miles southeast of Metaline Falls, a quaint town with historic buildings.
