Off the beaten path, through the mining ghost town of Gilmore and up 2,000 feet, on a gravel road, you will find US National Forest's, Meadow Lake Campground. 17 nice gravel sites, overlooking a glacial lake with stunning views. Camp sites offer picnic tables, fire pits, ice chest tables and very nice tent pads. Most are fairly level and several have lake views. Site #12 and the group site are reservable the rest are walk-up. Clean pit toilets and central water. Garbage is not available. Well maintained hiking trails with creeks, bridges, views, wildlife and wild flowers. Lake is stocked with cutthroat and rainbow trout. Lake is at 9100' so it can be cool and is an amazing escape from the summer heat. One of the most scenic NF campgrounds we've been to.
