Overview

Browne Lake Group Sites are located next to their namesake lake in a high mountain meadow, at an elevation of 8,200 feet. Visitors enjoy fishing, canoeing and exploring miles of hiking and ATV trails.

Recreation

Fishing for rainbows, brook trout and kokanee salmon is a popular activity at Browne Lake, as is canoeing and other non-motorized boating.

Several ATV and hiking trails are in the immediate area: Leidy Peak Trailhead is within the campground. Sheep Creek Lake, with cutthroat and brook trout fishing, is nearby.

Facilities

The campground consists of four reservable, accessible group sites that accommodate up to 40 people each. Sites contain picnic tables and campfire circles. Single-family sites are available only a first come, first served basis.

Vault toilets are provided. Roads and parking spurs are dirt. The campground is accessed via a well-maintained dirt road.

Natural Features

The campground is partially shaded by pines and aspens. Summer wildflowers dot the surrounding grassy meadows. The lake is visible from most of the sites and a short trail leads to its shore.

Nearby Attractions

Numerous scenic driving routes on maintained dirt roads crisscross the area around Browne Lake, providing miles of trails for ATVs, hikers and mountain bikers. Trails lead to reservoirs and lakes, overlooks, forests, meadows and historic sites.

Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area is known not only for its beautiful red cliffs, but also for its world-class fishing for lake, brown and rainbow trout. Boating, water skiing, jet skiing, canoeing, kayaking, swimming and scuba diving are popular activities on the reservoir.

Flaming Gorge Dam offers guided tours of the working hydroelectric plant and the dam itself; the adjacent visitor center contains area history exhibits.
