This sun-drenched campground sits between Upper and Lower Cow Lakes. The area is surrounded by sage tablelands and the Jordan Craters Lava Flow. Upper Cow Lake is a fluctuating, 1,000-acre reservoir that attracts anglers with catches of white crappie, largemouth bass, and brown bullhead. Besides fishing, guests can swim, bird-watch, or hunt. People interested in exploring the lava beds should contact the BLM for information. North of Danner, history trackers may seek out the grave of Jean Baptiste Charbonneau. He was the son of Sacagawea (formerly written Sacajawea) and Toussaint Charbonneau of the Lewis and Clark exploration party.
