Island Park Campground

Evergreen–shaded Island Park Campground sits on West Tensleep Creek and is within five miles of West Tensleep Lake and trail heads for the Cloud Peak Wilderness, thus offering rich opportunities for the trout fisherman, canoeist, hiker, horseback rider, and off-roader. No-wake Meadowlark Lake is 7 miles distant, and just east of it is an abandoned fire lookout that provides the hiker with a scenic platform for looking into the Cloud Peak Wilderness. Moose frequent the campground.
