Living only 20 minutes from brooks lake, I always make it a goal to camp out their every summer. The views can't be beat and the fishing in both the lake a creek is unreal. Just watch out for the local grizzly bears and enjoy this amazing spot.
Nice campground. Best outhouses in the state.
A number of sites along the banks of the water. Some harder to get to than others if you intend to drive up to them because of mud (may have just rained before we arrived). Pit toilets available.
Bundle up if you come early! Hard-sided campers only; so this area is only suitable for RV's or pickup truck camping. Campground opens late June so check status online before you go.
Snow was still on the ground, but I'll take that over mosquitos. Was warm during the day with plenty of opportunities to hike nearby or just hang by the lake and fish. This is a pretty busy site, for good reason. Get there early to secure a site.
Bears are a serious threat here so you can’t even camp in a tent. We arrived with tents and were told we couldn’t sleep in our cars either so had to leave. YOU NEED A HARD SIDED CAMPER! We did get good looks at the place when we picnicked and hiked there before leaving. The road is dirt but should be accessible for most cars if it’s not too rainy. It was extra clean since the bears are such a big problem and it’s a little scary with all the bear warnings and visits. Real nice true wilderness feel though, great views, waterfalls, bluffs, on the way to Grand Tetons National Park.
A dirt road to access the campground, a bit washboard but not bad. No tents or soft pop up campers because bears frequent the area. Keep bear spray handy. Camp was clean, camp host was very friendly. We visited over Labor Day it was very cold at night. I will definitely be back for more camping.
