Madison County, Montana

Camp at Wade Lake

Originally added by Christie Kay

Gorgeous camp site - your choice of either regulated campgrounds with designated sites, or you can continue past the campground and backpack to dispersed sites further around the lake.

Wade Lake Campground is a gorgeous campground, situated right on the crystal clear blue waters of Wade Lake. It has a handful of maintained sites, as well as a vault toilet. You can easily car camp here, though you may want to be careful on the road in if you're hauling a camper. 

The beauty of this campground though, is that if you continue to hike past it, you're in backpacking and dispersed camping territory. There are a number of sites, right along the lake, depending on how far you feel like hiking. There are already a number of fire rings and clear spots where others have camped (please use a pre-existing site! Let's keep this place alive and well!)

A gorgeous place to enjoy the peace and quiet that Montana offers, enjoy a fire with friends, and fish if you've got the equipment! Be sure to bring you camera, because this lake does not disappoint. 

There are no reservations available. For contact info and updated details, please visit the Forest Service website.
