Free and breathtaking

Stayed 1 week and had an amazing time. Just drive in and find an empty place to camp. Very large spots with lots of room between sites. Easy access to trails and lake. Will g0 again!!!

A good lake

We went in July - so bring bug spray if you go at the same time we did! Louis Lake is beautiful. There are some rustic cabins just next to it that you can rent out. Be aware that there isn’t electricity, but there are lots of canoes and kayaks you can take on the lake as well as life vests to wear. If you drive a little ways from there you can do an AMAZING hike that ends in beautiful waterfalls and a “slide rock” that is very smooth and you can slide over the falls. Park at Bruce’s (it’s a good parking spot) then hike Popo Aggies trail to the falls.

Gorgeous views

The campsites fill up quickly but there are many to choose from. There are also cabins nearby and a small store.

Great for paddling

Fun place in a beautiful setting in the Shoshone National Forest in the southern most part of the Windriver Mountains.

Be perepared for afternoon rain. But bring plenty of drinking water as there is no potable water here.

The rate is $10/night pretty reasonable! The camp sites are kind of close together, but it is also fun to get to know your fellows campers.

There are pit toilets, bear proof storage, and nice tables and fire rings with grates. There is no potable water here.

There is a lodge on the lake with rustic cabins for rent. starting at $85/night

I prefer Fiddlers Lake ( see my Review) There is abundant primitive camping all over the area if you prefer space over amenities.

Louis Lake

Very small campground in the national forest, very simple (no water but outhouses), very nice wilderness feel. If you don’t have a boat plan to spend your time off the campground exploring the rest of the national forest trails and wildlife scenic drives. Loved driving here and seeing signs for Atlantic City…it’s about as different from the NJ one as you can get!

Great spot if not too busy

Lois Lake is a great place to camp if it is not a major holiday. I have been here twice. The first time, there were very few people in the campground, so it was wonderful! Quiet, peaceful, and lovely. Our car was set up on the lake, and it was beautiful to wake up to. I look forward to taking my SUP out there soon. The second time we camped there, there were so many people it was almost impossible to find a site. It was loud, and there were just too many people. I guess it all depends on when you go.
