Nearby Attractions

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 This old fire lookout was built by the CCC decades ago and is no longer active.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

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.
