Overview

Sibley Lake Campground is located at Sibley Lake along the Bighorn Scenic Byway (U.S. Highway 14) near the Burgess Junction at an elevation of 7,900 feet. 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 is situated near Sibley Lake and Prune Creek in the Bighorn Mountains, where craggy granite peaks rise over 13,000 feet above sea level. A forest of lodgepole pine covers the area, creating excellent wildlife habitat.

Recreation:

Sibley Lake is open to non-motorized craft and offers an accessible fishing dock on the shoreline. Anglers fish for rainbow, brown and brook trout.

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.

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

Nearby Attractions:

Burgess Junction Visitor Center is 5 miles away. Shell Falls Visitor Center, at the overlook of Shell Falls, is about 25 miles southwest. Both centers offer interpretive trails, scenic views and educational displays about natural features like flora and fauna, and area history.

The Medicine Wheel National Historic Landmark is about 30 miles from the campground. This unique geoglyph signifies all creation,and according to tribal beliefs, the circular shape of the wheel represents the earth, sun, moon, cycles of life, seasons and day to night.
