“Rough road, popular with locals.”
This small forest service camp is a bit of a trek - 7 miles of rough, steep dirt road from the highway. I think the last time any maintenance was done on the road was at least 10 years ago...
Access is limited to July - September at the best. The road doesn't open before July 1 but could be later depending on snow pack and road conditions. Camp closes fairly early too in mid September. Expect cold nights no matter what thanks to the elevation (7500').
This area is very popular with locals all week but weekends will be the busiest. Expect a lot of traffic coming through camp if the trailhead parking lot is full. Lots of traffic on the road as well and most of them have no idea how to drive on a single lane road. Don't expect anyone to yield to you. Also, don't expect your fellow campers to be quiet.
Camp has the basic amenities of a table, fire ring, water pump, and pit toilet. All sites are in good condition as the camp was remodeled just a few years ago. Also, due to the remodel, there are not a lot of trees in camp so expect to be in the sun most of the day.
Views in the area and the lake are second to none. Great hike up to Sacagawea Peak and along the ridge of the Bridgers. Good fishing in the lake so long as you don't mind getting kids and dogs tangled in your line.
