Big Bull Elk Creek

Big Bull Creek Campsite
There is an abundance of camp worthy sites in this area. The sites farther back offer a bit more privacy and protection from the elements. These sites are in a bay on the East side of the lake in-between dayboards 10 and 11. There is plenty of firewood and a few rock fire rings. This is a large area without much human impact to date so it is important to follow the seven principles of Leave No Trace when camping here. Once again this area gets a fair amount of bear activity and there are no bear boxes so a bear canister is suggested. It is possible to find space for up to ten tents regardless of water level. The Crow Indian Reservation surrounds most of the northern end of the Recreation Area and is closed to all public use. Within the Recreation Area, lakeshore camping is permitted up to full pool plus 30 elevational feet unless otherwise posted.
