The information for this camp available on the Forest Service website is outdated. I stayed here in July 2018 and camping was free but with the improvements made to the camp, I would expect fees may be charged in the future.
The camp does have designated sites with a single unit permitted at each site. The camp was remodeled and enlarged in early 2018 and now offers over a dozen campsites. All sites have a concrete table and basic fire ring along with a bear-proof storage box. Sites are large - mostly double wide back in sites that almost any RV could fit in. There are two pit toilets in camp, both new. There was a site reserved for a camp host and there was a camper parked there but I never saw anyone at that site. The sites directly backed up to the lake were taken but the newer sites in the trees were mostly available mid day on a Saturday in mid July 2018. Things were still a bit rough around the edges and the newer sites weren't 100% finished - I'm hoping the FS came through with some gravel to add to the parking areas. No garbage service and no drinking water.
It is a bit of a trek to get to the camp but worth it for a quiet and free camp so close to Yellowstone Park. The dirt road is in good condition and is mostly a two lane road. No boat ramp here but there is a ramp at the Lonesomehurst Camp which you'll pass on the way here.
