Overview

Overview

Hunter Peak Campground is located on the Chief Joseph Scenic Highway/State Highway 296, approximately four miles south of the junction with scenic Beartooth Highway/U.S. Highway 12. The campground is about 60 miles northeast of Cody, in northwestern Wyoming.

Natural Features:

The campground sits on the banks of the Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone River, at an elevation of 6,500 feet. A mixed conifer forest covers the campground. A variety of wildlife, including grizzly bear, deer and elk makes its home in the area.

Recreation:

The Clarks Fork offers outstanding fishing opportunities for rainbow and cutthroat trout. Many hiking trails are located in the area, including the Clarks Fork Trailhead, which is across the highway from the campground.

Facilities:

This small campground contains single-family campsites, each equipped with a table and campfire ring. Vault toilets and trash collection are provided. A host is on-site. Firewood may be gathered in the area.

Fuel, sundries and a dump station are available in the nearby community of Crandall.

Nearby Attractions:

The Beartooth Highway was deemed "the most beautiful drive in America," by the late Charles Kuralt. It snakes across the rugged Beartooth Mountains from Red Lodge to Cooke City, Mont., and is the highest elevation highway in the Northern Rockies. Along the way, visitors are treated to sweeping views and plentiful outdoor recreation opportunities.

Yellowstone National Park's northeast entrance is approximately 24 miles from the campground via the Beartooth Highway. The park offers unparalleled wildlife viewing opportunities, as well as breathtaking scenery and unique geological features.
