For a National park campground run by a contractor we were very disappointed. Our time at the campground was from Sept 10th to the 16th. For the price you had to pay for the showers and if you showered before daylight the lights turned off mid shower so you showered in the dark. The campgrounds really needs to be updated also. Besides us we saw two other rigs get hung up on the short posts that surround the camping area. The small roadside type camping/parking areas aren’t big enough for some rigs. Many of the water fountains didn’t work either.
Brkft at the lodge was a buffet and it was a joke, glad we checked before going. Factory baking powder Biscuits, boil in a bag scrambled eggs, etc.
for the National park it advertised that night sky’s viewing would be until the 14th of Sept, not! Was told Labor Day weekend was it. Same for fossil talk which had know one when we made our appearance at the prescribed time. The campground was full every night and we saw lots of people everywhere we went.
Pluses, the views and animals that we saw.
A nice surprise We had site #50 in Lakeview Campground, this site is located on the rise and had nice breezes, close to showers, lake and playground.
Town of Isle is very close by along with other small towns dotted around the lake. Casino within 30 minutes.
Yes it is tucked in right off of HWY 61 and can be a distraction if you let it. We hiked, fished and just sat and looked at the Lake.
The 300’ wild waterfall is my favorite area to hike to. Study the force of the water over the centuries of work. Driving the forest roads you can come upon little surprises like Heartbreak hill.
