Enjoy beautiful backcountry scenery and plenty of Brook Trout if you're planning on fishing along Lost Creek.

I included a trail map of where I camped. There are many sites all throughout this area. From the Lost Park Campground Parking lot follow the Lost Creek for 2.4 miles. At the 1 mile mark was the best place that we found to cross the creek (there are two logs that make a bridge across the creek). You will pass many camp sites along the way and I am sure that there are several past the 2.4 mile mark.

Make sure to bring your fly rod. The brook trout were small but they are still fun to catch!

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.

Lost Creek Wilderness Area is incredibly big and is all connected by dirt roads. If you can research where to go possibilities of remote tripping are endless. There are lots of amazing climbing and bouldering trips to be had as well at backpacking.
