“Cheap camping outside Watson Lake”

Reviewed Jun 30, 2018

Overall Rating

Nestled a couple miles down a dirt/gravel road is Watson Lake Campground. We stayed in site 44 in the second loop on the lake and is a large pull-through. That site has a little path down to the lake, but there were loads of mosquitos down there.

There were quite a few sites that were easily 100’ in length.

The campground only has vault toilets and water that you are supposed to boil before using. They do have free firewood throughout the campground though.

Cell signal in the town of Watson Lake is excellent – 4 bars of LTE. But at the campground, we were getting 3 bars of 3G. It was enough to get the job done.

Quick access (once you get to the main road) to the Sign Post Forest and the Aurorium.
