Overview

Lakeview Campground is located on Meadowlark Lake about 50 miles east of Worland, Wyoming on the west side of scenic Cloud Peak Skyway, near the Cloud Peak Wilderness Area.

The Bighorn National Forest offers a wide variety of activities, including hiking, fishing, scenic driving and a number of historic sites.

Natural Features:

The campground overlooks scenic Meadowlark Lake, which can be viewed from several sites. A forest of lodgepole pine and Douglas fir trees covers the campground. Many additional lakes and streams are found in the surrounding area.

Recreation:

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

The nearest dump station is 12 miles away on Powder River Pass.

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 This old fire lookout was built by the CCC decades ago and is no longer active.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 Meadowlark Lake 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.
