Sibley Lake Campground is located at Sibley Lake along the Bighorn Scenic Byway (U.S. Highway 14) near the Burgess Junction at an elevation of 7,900 feet. The Bighorn National Forest offers a wide variety of activities, including hiking, fishing, scenic driving and a number of historic sites. The administering organization is Gallatin Canyon Campgrounds; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Sibley Lake is open to non-motorized craft and offers an accessible fishing dock on the shoreline. Anglers fish for rainbow, brown and brook trout.
Off-road vehicle trails, scenic jeep roads, hiking and additional fishing streams are available in the surrounding area. Diverse hikes vary from loop trails to treks along creeks and over mountain peaks; many trails access the Cloud Peak Wilderness.
The campground offers several single-family sites each equipped with a picnic table and campfire ring with grill. Accessible vault toilets, drinking water and trash collection are provided.
The campground is situated near Sibley Lake and Prune Creek in the Bighorn Mountains, where craggy granite peaks rise over 13,000 feet above sea level. A forest of lodgepole pine covers the area, creating excellent wildlife habitat.
Shell Falls Visitor Center, at the overlook of Shell Falls, is about 25 miles southwest. This center offers interpretive trails, scenic views, and educational displays about natural features such as flora and fauna and area history.

ADA Access: N
Head into the northern side of the Bighorns and you come across Sibley Lake. The campground has electric and non-electric loops. Sites are large and you find yourself under tall trees. The camp host keeps the vault toilets and campground clean. Drive through the campground, or take the road that skirts it to the left, and you find picnic areas. Launch your boat to catch some fish or just enjoy the day. We saw families having picnic celebrations on this holiday weekend. There is also a hiking/skiing route that has several loops. Go around Sibley or extend your adventure further. There is a donation box for trail upkeep.
This is a nice campground that is closest to the towns in the east.
peaceful lake with easy access. Fun fishing for families.
only place that has electric hook ups in the bighorns. fun kiddie pond to fish, be better if it had a slot limit and people quit keeping the baby fish and they grew.
