Overview

Boulder Park Campground 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 sits on the banks of West Tensleep Creek in an open meadow surrounded by a forest of lodgepole pine. Many lakes and streams are found in the surrounding 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 wake-less speed. West Tensleep Lake, a few miles north of the campground, is open to non-motorized craft only. Both lakes are great locations for canoeing and fishing.

Facilities:

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.

The nearest dump station is 15 miles away at Powder River Pass.

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 This old fire lookout was built by the CCC decades ago and is no longer active.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