This is a fine community campsite just west of Wisdom, near the west shore of the Big Hole River. Even though I've come to Wisdom for over 60 years, I never tire of the ever-shifting views. It's very informal, and there is room for at least 10 rigs. Instead of beating up our RV on the drive to any of the lakes in the area, we prefer to camp here and drive there in our pickup. A number of bow hunters were camped here when we stayed in late Sept., but we still found several spots for our friends and us on a Sunday.
There's no electric, sewer, or water hookup here. I didn't notice a water hydrant, but didn't look for one as we carried enough. There's a little highway noise, but it's not a busy road. The camp features a toilet and a small clubhouse with free internet (unsecured), plus picnic tables and fire pits. We could get no Verizon signal. There is Verizon service in Jackson, about 18 miles south, so you can check your messages while in the hot springs pool.
The American Legion has provided a great facility here for visitors to use. There is no fee, but we urge campers to make a generous donation. They deserve it!
A tip for those wishing to fish: late in the season the river is often closed to fishing here, and it's not posted in the campground. Check with the Hook & Horn Trading Post on the north side of the highway in Wisdom. They keep track of the regulations.
