Great campground right by the lake🏔

We stayed here for 2 nights in July. It was a great campground. Within walking distance to the lake, which made it great to go paddle boarding. There is also a store up the road about 1/2 a mile. This is a really beautiful area and a well maintained campground. Bring bug repellent, lots of bugs.

Most amazing views

6 mile hike to the overview of the dam is well worth the whole experience!

Wonderful campground!!!!

We were sent here due to a forest fire close to where we were we had reservations. This is the highest campground around. So it stays nice and cool. So peaceful and beautiful.

Perfect Spot

This campground is nice for its location in relation both to Yellowstone's NE entrance and The Beartooths. Island Lake is beautiful, especially at sunrise, and is only a short walk from the campground itself.
