Overview

Bald Mountain Campground is located along the Medicine Wheel Passage Scenic Byway (U.S. Highway 14A), 33 miles east of Lovell, Wyoming. The Medicine Wheel National Historic Landmark is nearby. Visitors enjoy the area for its scenic natural beauty and recreational opportunities.

Natural Features:

Bald Mountain is part of the Bighorn Range in northern Wyoming. A forest of pine and aspen covers the campground, which sits near top of the mountain at an elevation of 9,200 feet. Small creeks wind through the campground and temperatures can drop significantly once the sun goes down.

Recreation:

From the area's historic mining sites to the ancient Native American Medicine Wheel, to hiking through open meadows and along the cliffs on the west rim of the mountains, the Bighorn National Forest offers many recreational opportunities.

Jaws Trailhead is near the campground, offering access to Bucking Mule Falls Trail and Porcupine Creek. Scenic off-road driving is available on Hunt Mountain Road or Burgess Overlook jeep trail.

Facilities:

The campground offers single-family sites, each with a picnic table and campfire ring with grill. Accessible vault toilets, drinking water and trash collection are provided.

The nearest dump station is 25 miles east at Burgess Junction

Nearby Attractions:

The Medicine Wheel National Historic Landmark is 4 miles from the campground. This unique geoglyph signifies all creation, all races of people, birds, fish, animals, trees and stones. According to tribal beliefs, the circular shape of the wheel represents the earth, sun, moon, cycles of life, seasons and day to night.

High Country Lodge is nearby, offering guided horseback riding and backcountry pack trips, off-road vehicle rentals and guided fishing trips.
