Bad Medicine Campground Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Driving the densely forested access road to this campground provides a strong contrast to the dramatic peaks you see to the east along MT 56. Part of the 94,000-acre Cabinet Mountain Wilderness, these mountains top out at under 7,000 feet but seem to tower over the landscape. It’s not an optical illusion. The fact that their base elevations are so low provides 4,000 feet of visible mountainside, making them just as impressive as the 10,000-foot peaks around Red Lodge.
In this peaceful setting on the southwest corner of Bull Lake, you’ll ﬁnd a variety of options under the conifer canopy. The well-spaced sites are level, and tents deﬁnitely rule the upper bluﬀtop loop. The sites there are plentiful and spacious, and it’s easy to orient your camp to create privacy. Sites 3, 4, and 12–15 are best for tenters, especially family groups."
