We got here on a Sunday evening and the campground was nearly empty. Gravel and very dusty road in. There are 2 camping areas: the one to the right (past the boat launch) had a few campers, the one to the left was empty. Lake is used heavily by local boaters/campers on the weekends. Empty by Monday. Spoke to the caregivers and they said that’s how it usually is. He mentioned winds can get pretty bad, but it was perfect when we were there. No cell service at site (only 1 bar 3G on top of hill) and we had mechanical issues with loss of 12 volt to house distribution panel. So we left out the next day to search for repair service. Would have liked to stay and swim in the lake. No hookups. Vault toilet was decent. Trash cans were full from weekend crowd. Some sites were short or not level.

We couldn’t quite make it to Billings and needed a place to stop so we picked this not knowing what to expect. What a great decision! Beautiful campsite with plenty of privacy right on the lake. No services but there are toilets. Warm enough to swim in the lake. Great spot if you need a break from the road. The road is gravel and a little bumpy down by the lake.
