Overview

Willow Park is located 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 is situated in an open meadow surrounded by a forest of lodgepole pine. Many lakes and streams are found throughout the Bighorn Mountains.

Recreation:

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.

Meadowlark Lake is within a couple miles of the campground. This small lake allows motorized craft at a no-wake speed. West Tensleep Lake, a few miles north of the campground, is open to non-motorized craft only.

Facilities:

The campground offers one group site that can accommodate up to 150 people for day-use picnicking and up to 60 people for overnight camping. The site is equipped with several picnic and serving tables, grills and a campfire circle with benches. Accessible vault toilets, drinking water and trash collection are provided.

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 This old fire lookout was built by the CCC decades ago and is no longer active.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

Deer Haven Lodge and Meadowlark Lodge are nearby, offering dining options, lodging, guided horseback riding and fishing and camping supplies.
