Red Lodge campground contains 41 campsites located within a mature spruce forest
that provides good privacy. There are few choice sites located on the bank of the
Little Red Deer River. Amenities include hand water pump, toilets, showers,
playground, telephone, power, sani dump, refuse containers and fire wood
sale. The campground is located in a protected natural area that was once owned
by an English settler name Mr. Crichly. He owned a red colored log
cabin, hence the name Red Lodge. The trail following the
river is very nice, several park benches
can be found offering nice views of the area. Mountain bikers will find a few off road
trails nearby. Fishing can be good also. The little Red Deer
River holds Brown
Trout, Brook Trout, Burbot and
Whitefish. You'll need a
license to try out your luck. Night skies here rank #
4 on the Bortle Scale. See the official web site link below for fees, opening and closing dates.
