Meadowlark Lake is about 11 miles from the campground. This small lake allows motorized craft at a wake-less speed. West Tensleep Lake is 14 miles northeast of the campground and is open to non-motorized craft only. Both lakes are great locations for canoeing and fishing.

Natural Features

The campground sits on the banks of Tensleep Creek surrounded by a forest of lodgepole pine. Many lakes and streams are found in the surrounding Bighorn Mountains.

Nearby Attractions

The High Park Lookout is located just east of Meadowlark Lake. This old fire lookout was built by the CCC decades ago and is no longer active. A short hike leads to the lookout, where hikers are awarded panoramic views of the surrounding area. Deer Haven Lodge and Meadowlark Lodge are nearby, offering dining options, lodging, guided horseback riding and fishing and camping supplies.
