Overview

Overview

Lost Cabin Campground is located 29 miles west of Buffalo, Wyoming on the east 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 is situated on a hillside above Highway 16. A dense forest of lodgepole pine covers the area and North Fork Creek flows nearby.

Recreation:

Scenic off-road driving is available on nearby Elgin Park, Pole Creek and Crazy Woman Canyon Roads. Hiking and mountain biking are allowed on these roads as well.

Many additional hiking trails are available in the Cloud Peak Wilderness. A short trail leads from the campground to a scenic creek below.

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 12 miles away on Powder River Pass.

Nearby Attractions:

Meadowlark Lake is 20 minutes west of the campground, and Tie Hack Reservoir is 20 minutes north. Both lakes are great locations for canoeing and fishing.

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 This old fire lookout was built by the CCC decades ago and is no longer active.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

South Fork Lodge is nearby, offering dining options, lodging, guided horseback riding and fishing and camping supplies.
