Nearby Meadowlark Lake covers 325 acres and is open to boating at a wake-less speed, making it a perfect location for canoeing and fishing. Anglers will find rainbow, cutthroat, brown and brook trout in the cool waters of the lake.

Off-road vehicle trails, scenic jeep roads, hiking and additional fishing streams are available in the surrounding area. Diverse hikes vary from loop trails to treks along creeks and over mountain peaks; many trails access the Cloud Peak Wilderness.

Facilities

The campground offers several single-family sites each equipped with a picnic table and campfire ring with grill. Site 006 meets established accessibility standards. Accessible vault toilets, drinking water and trash collection are also provided.

Natural Features

Sitting Bull is situated on the edge of a forest of lodgepole pine, adjacent to a beautiful mountain meadow, a prime location for wildlife viewing. Most sites afford expansive views of 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 This old fire lookout was built by the CCC decades ago and is no longer active.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.

West Tensleep Lake is about 10 miles north of the campground and is open to non-motorized craft only. The popular West Tensleep Lake Trail begins here and leads into the Cloud Peak Wilderness.

Deer Haven Lodge and Meadowlark Lodge are nearby, offering dining options, lodging, guided horseback riding and fishing and camping supplies.
