Overview

Cottonwood Group Campsite is located near the scenic Cottonwood Lake below Salt River Pass in the forest of western Wyoming.

Recreation

The lake offers great canoeing and boating for smaller craft and fishing for brook and cutthroat trout. Hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding trails are in the area, as well as a motorized route for trail vehicles <50". The west loop of the campground includes horse corrals. The east side, where the group site is located, includes the motorized trail head, so trail vehicles are allowed passage.

Facilities

This group campsite can accommodate up to 25 guests and is most appropriate for groups camping in tents. Two vehicles can be parked at the site (van-sized vehicles are the largest the site will accommodate) and six additional vehicles can be parked at the adjacent Cottonwood Lake Day Use Area. Single-family sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Vault toilets and drinking water are provided.

Natural Features

Peaceful North Fork Creek flows through the campground. Its banks and the surrounding canyon are forested by dense stands of pines and aspens, which offer excellent shade and privacy. Vibrant summer wildflowers are abundant.
