Beautiful and peaceful

Great place to camp! It’s a little tricky to get a campsite because people come and go throughout the day. We didn’t get a site about 1pm on a Thursday but came back first thing Friday morning and got a spot for the weekend. Beautiful views and stargazing. Tons of trails and places to see nearby.…

About This Campground

Adventurers love sleeping under the towering trees and night sky of the secluded Brooklyn Lake Campground in the mountains of southeastern Wyoming. Located eight miles northwest of Centennial, Wyoming, the facility is situated along a small, picturesque lake at an elevation of 10,500 feet.

Recreation

Popular activities include hiking, fishing and non-motorized boating. The 36-acre lake is a nice canoeing spot with calm water. Non-motorized boats are allowed on Brooklyn Lake with carry-down access for boats.

Fishing is good for brook trout. From the campground, hikers can access the Sheep Lake and Lost Lake Trails. Sheep Lake Trail also allows horseback riding.

Facilities

All 29 campsites have a view of the lake, and walk-in sites are no more than 25 feet to the water. Campsites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Other conveniences include campfire rings, trash collection and vault toilets.

Natural Features

The scenery at Brooklyn Lake can't be beat. Pine forests and grasslands surround the lake, and the snow-capped Browns Peak protrudes into the crisp, blue summer sky.

The Medicine Bow-Routt National Forests and Thunder Basin National Grassland encompass nearly 3 million acres from central and northeastern Wyoming to north-central Colorado.

Black bear, bobcat, coyote, elk, mule deer and moose are just some of the many animals that inhabit these rich and diverse lands.

Nearby Attractions
