Louis Lake Campsite

We loved our Summer 2021 stay on Kirwin Trail and almost headed back there, but my goal is to keep discovering new areas. There’s always that excitement of chasing and discovering a new cool place! So happens that Louis Lake Road in the Shoshone National Forest was a perfect (for us) discovery.

Taking HWY 28 south from Lander, WY, you will see a big snow chain parking area and the Louis Lake Road turn off. The road is a maintained gravel road and easy for any rig travel on.

There are sites within the first half mile. We just drove until we found an empty one and was very happy with the location.

Not too far back that we lost cell signal yet well off the main road and distant from other dispersed sites to offer privacy and quiet.
