Overview

Half Moon Lake campground is situated just off the northeast shore of Half Moon Lake at an elevation of 7,600 feet in the Bridger-Teton National Forest, Wyoming.

Natural Features:

Half Moon Lake was created by glacial movements and is now surrounded by the foot hills of the Wind River Mountains. Along the lakeshore and the hillsides you will find lodgepole pine, Douglas-fir and aspen stands interspersed with sagebrush and rocky outcroppings.

Recreation:

This lake provides many recreational activities. Anglers enjoy fishing for rainbow trout, brown trout, lake trout and other various species of fish native to the area. Visitors also enjoy water sports such as boating, swimming, canoeing and paddle boarding. Two miles down the gravel road is an excellent hiking trail for users of all abilities.

Facilities:

This campground offers 17 sites; three of these provide direct lake access. Each site is well screened by willows and equipped with a picnic table and a fire ring. There are two vault toilets on site and a dumpster is provided during the operating season. Approximately 1/2 mile down the main road is the boat launch site, with a dock and additional vault toilets. No drinking water is available. Proper food storage is required.

Nearby Attractions:

The Museum of the Mountain Man, located in Pinedale, features a large collection of Rocky Mountain fur trade artifacts, Native American displays, as well as history of the settlement of Sublette County. In July look for the annual Green River Rendezvous. For more information please see the Sublette County Chamber of Commerce or pinedaleonline.com.
