Dry Head Creek

Dry Head Creek Campsite
There are a couple of small one or two tent sites at the head of Dry Head Canyon. On the way back into the canyon you will pass a floating vault toilet that should be in the third week of May until the end of September. The sites are approximately 1.5 miles from the main canyon. There is space for 5-6 tents with a good amount of shade and plenty of firewood. There are some underwater rocks near shore so a careful approach is necessary. The best sites are a short walk up the creek at the end of the canyon. This area supports both bighorn sheep and black bears. There are no bear boxes so a bear canister is suggested. There may be rattlesnakes in this area, watch where you put your hands and feet. 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.
