“Beautiful and remote - may not work for bigger rigs”

Reviewed Oct 11, 2015

Overall Rating

We stayed late in the season (Oct 9, 2015 though the weather was great) and many other campgrounds were closed. This site is a couple miles north on the Beartooth Pass (212) - we were coming from Yellowstone's NE exit. The pass was already marked closed for the season but the first few miles were open, so that's how we stumbled across Lily Lake.

The ride up is a good road, though washboard. At the top are unbelievable views of surrounding mountains. There are some dispersed sites at the top which may work better for bigger rigs. Some hunters were staying there- they were super friendly and upped our affection for the site big time.

If you continue down to the right to the Lake, the official campsites are there. We tried but failed to get into the one closest to the lake. The boat ramp turnaround area looks bigger than it is - beware. The spots higher up were doable and lovely.

"Bear awareness" is high here- the hunters told us they regularly saw Grizzlies and wolves but thought they mostly stayed out of the campground. Bathroom was fine. Picnic tables, fire rings etc. unbelievable stars, as this CG is remote. Blissfully quiet. FREE! The lake is a great spot for wildlife watching- we saw a giant Elk lumber across.

No cell signal really to speak of though our AT&T did occasionally come in for a split second to let a text through.
