The best camping near Lake Louise Recreation Area guide



Once upon a time, in 1932, the south fork of Wolf Creek was dammed, and Lake Louise was born. Okay, so it’s not exactly the most exciting bedtime story, but we promise you that visiting is way more fun than reading a quick blurb about this awesome place’s history. Pheasant and duck hunters in particular will totally want to come check this recreation area out—it’s well-known for its plentiful game. Anglers can get in on the action, too. Naturally, swimming is another big draw out here. If you’d rather spend some time on solid ground, then you might be interested in the Pheasant Run Trail. It’s a super easy hike that will get you up close and personal with wildlife, and even Indian burial grounds. And, lest we forget, there’s tons of camping options, including rental cabins for all of our fabulous glampers.

When to go

The ideal time to visit Lake Louise Recreation Area is during the warmer months, from late spring to early fall, when the park is in full bloom and the lake's waters invite for a swim. Winter brings its own charm, though some activities may be limited by snow and ice.

Know before you go

  • Check the weather forecast and pack accordingly, as conditions can change rapidly.
  • Ensure you have a valid park pass and are aware of any park-specific regulations.
  • For those planning to fish, a state fishing license is required.
  • Accessibility varies across the park, so inquire ahead if you have specific needs.
  • Remember to leave no trace and dispose of trash responsibly to preserve the park's natural beauty.
