Recreation

The 1,070-acre New Fork Lake offers great boating, canoeing and swimming. Anglers fish for kokanee salmon and brook, lake and rainbow trout. A large cement boat ramp is located a mile and a half from the campground, at the lake's northwestern shore.

New Fork Trail, for hiking and horseback riding, begins at the entrance to the neighboring Narrows Campground (2.5 miles away). The trail provides back country access through New Fork Canyon into the Bridger Wilderness, and connects with several other trails. Horse corrals are located at the trailhead.

Facilities

The campground's large group site can accommodate up to 150 people, with picnic and serving tables, grills, two bear boxes for food storage, and a double vault toilet. Garbage service is located just outside of the group site on the main Forest Service road. Drinking water is not available.

Natural Features

The group site lies in a grassy meadow surrounded by lodgepole pine trees, which provide only very limited shade. As there is no traditional defined parking area, the group site allows for informal camping, gatherings and family affairs.
