Stunning & Pristine!

We did a two night loop in the Two Medicine are of the park and this was our first night's destination. As mentioned in the previous review, there are 4 tent sites available here and all must be reserved through the National Park's permitting system (different in every park). We retreived our permit 24 hours prior to entering the backcountry and were able to get our fist choice for the loop. This was in late August so on the tail end of the busy season in the park.

All four sites are flat and just up from the shore of No Name Lake and are well spaced from one another. Just a short walk from the communcal cooking space, complete with benches and a large bear box. The box is large enough to accomodate all four parties' food, dishes and toiletries, eliminating the need to carry a bear can into this site if you want to cut the weight. 

A relatively new and maintained pit toilet is a short walk from the cooking area (you pass it on your way in). You do need to back in your own toilet paper as well as soap and hand sanitizer. Be sure to keep the door latched when not in use to prevent the privy from being destroyed by wildlife.

We too, encountered moose on our way to this site (we hiked in from Two Medicine Lake). We also had one visit during the night, crossing paths on a midnight visit to the privy. I'm not sure who was more startled, probably the human in the situation.

  • Moose encounter on the hike in.
  • A smaller pond area just before the campsite.
  • Marker and map of the campsite
  • Set up for the night.
  • Enough space for a small 1 person tent and 2 person tarp.
  • Great communcal kitchen area with nice benches.
  • Shore area just down from the cooking space.
  • Relaxing in the afternoon sun.
  • Surrounded by mountains!
  • Evening hot drinks!
