Hidden jem in the rocks

This campground has about 10 sites on a small loop. The ones on the left on you way in are up in the rocks…very cool. Typical FS campground amenities like outhouse, fire pits, and tables. Road is gravel from highway but is ok for larger vehicles and trailers but sites maybe a little small.

First to Review
Awesome area

There are actually two campgrounds in the refuge with the other on the Lower lake. This campground is much better then the other one as its in a field with no trees or shelters for protection. The Upper lake campground is surrounded by smallish trees. There is an outhouse and each site has a table and fire ring. Accommodations are a little spartan but the area is stunningly beautiful and very remote. Wildlife viewing opportunities are endless.

Nice spot in the T-roots

We love this area and make a trip to the campground each fall when we often have the place to ourself. Potosi Creek runs through the middle of the campground. There are two loops and we prefer the north loop since it's smaller. There are outhouses on each loop.

Middle of nowhere in a good way

The journey to get here is long but worth the peace and quiet. We stayed at the south end of the lake where there is more camp spots, a boat ramp, and toilet. There are no marked spots as it's just a large field. Area is beautiful and exploring the Red Rocks Lakes valley is an experience. Camping is free.

Lakeside camping with mountain views

Seven sites, most lakeside. Boat ramp and bathroom facilities. Next to road and some houses which was a little weird but you forget about it when you see the views of the Madison Range across the lake. Free!

Nice spot by the Madison

17 sites with pit toilets. Some small trees but not a lot of shade….would be hot in the summer months. Several sites are riverside and the campground is well maintained. For some free dispursed camping, go on the other side of the river.

Beautiful but industrial camping

Can't beat the location and the view but if you're after solitude, this is not the place. Very busy, even over the Thanksgiving weekend, and sites are close together. The busyness that time of year may have been amplfied by the fact that Watchman Campground was closed. Clean restrooms and easy walking distance to the visitors center, the shuttle station, and town. Temps in November were pleasnt during the day and chilly at night.

Get away from the crowds

We camped here three nights over Memorial Day weekend. It was moderately busy but had no problem getting a spot on the upper loop. The lower loop is more desirable as it is lakeside is where the only outhouse is. Bring your boat… Lindburg Lake is beautiful.

ATV and dirt bikes everywhere!

The campground itself is nice but the 4th of July crowd was mostly there for motorized recreation. This, combined with peoples general disregard for how loud they are, was annoying. Logging creek flows behind the campground and a few of the middle numbered sites are creekside. There is also plenty of dispursed camping up the road.
