Wild Bill Lake

Wild Bill Lake Professional Review and Guide

"Wild Bill Lake is a small but charming threeacre lake in the Custer National Forest at the southern base of Grizzly Peak. The lake sits in the West Fork drainage, nestled into a glacial depression and surrounded by mountains. “Wild Bill” Kurtzer created the lake in 1 902 by building a dam at the outlet. He stocked the lake and rented boats as a commercial venture.

This trail circles the perimeter of the lake. There are two fishing docks with benches extending out into the lake. A picnic area sits among the lodgepole pines on the east side of the lake by the parking lot. Wild Bill Lake, regularly stocked with rainbow and brook trout, is a popular children’s fishing area and is wheelchair accessible."
