Mud Lake Campground is located across from the Anthony Lake Ski Area and near Mud Lake in the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest. Some campsites are tucked beneath dense pine and fir forest, while others sit in an open meadow.
A reservable group camp for up to 60 people is available, and additional standard sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. At an elevation of 7,100 feet, Mud Lake
Campground offers comfortable camping during the hottest part of the summer.
Each site has a picnic table and grill. Vault toilets are available at the campground, and drinking water is available at the Anthony Lake Recreation Area.
Mud Lake Campground has gone through some changes and will no longer be available as a group site. Mud Lake Campground will now be a reservable electrical hookup site for RVs.
Mud Lake Campground is located in the Southern Elkhorn Mountain/Powder River Basin Area. Picturesque views of the ski area, Gunsight Peak and the Elkhorn Mountains are only a short hike across Forest Road 73, which is part of the Elkhorn Scenic Byway.
The Elkhorn Scenic Byway is a 106-mile drive through the Elkhorn Mountains. Along this drive are ghost towns and an abundance of lakes and rivers.
