My wife likes the water...we have spent many summers on the Oregon Coast near the ocean. Now we are looking for nice RV parks on rivers/lakes in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming etc. (would like to get away from the fog and wind for a few summers)

Anyone have a favorite campsite near the water?

Wallowa Lake in NE Oregon and Phillips Reservoir west of Baker Oregon. No wind, no fog, lots of sun, beautiful water, lots of activities in both areas.

Wyoming State Parks with Lakes

Glendo State Park is located off Interstate 25, Exit 111. We have driven by this one many times, my son stayed at it a year or so ago. Very nice campgound he said.

Buffalo Bill State Park Headquarters, nine miles west of Cody on US Highway 14-16-20. The majestic peaks of the Absaroka Mountains dominate the scenery. We drove by this lake & campgrounds last Aug. 2009.

Boysen State Park is one of the larger parks in the State Park System. It is a lake-orientated park at the south end of the Owl Creek Mountains at the mouth of Wind River Canyon now part of the Wind River Canyon Scenic Byway. And offers 3 entrances: U.S. Highway 20 (east side), U.S. Highway 26 (south side) and Bass Lake Road (west side). It was very near Hot Springs State Park in the town of Thermopolis. There is no fee for using the State Bath House. Very neat. We over nighted in the Wind River Canyon in Aug. & at one of the campgrounds by the lake some years ago.

Key Hole State Park is located on the western edge of the famed Black Hills, between Sundance and Moorcroft, and is easily accessed off Interstate 90, Exit 165, or take Exit 153 or 154 in Moorcroft, then U.S. Highway 14 north 6 miles, then take State Route 113. We used it years ago to over-night & base to go see Devil's Tower on our way to Yellowstone.

A smaller lake, but very neat one: Guernsey State Park provides seven campgrounds. Five are around the lake; located off Interstate 25, Exit 92 to U.S. Highway 26 and then State Route 270. We stayed at this one years ago near the canyon area of the lake. Close to Ft. Laramie and Oregon Trail sites. **** Oregon Trail Wyoming ** Trail Ruts WY & Ruts Site & nearby Register Cliff *** Idaho's Massacre State Park & Oregon Trail Idaho

An even smaller lake, but in a neat setting: Curt Gowdy State Park located just 24 miles west of Cheyenne and 24 miles east of Laramie; seven sections of richly varied landscape, flora and fauna decorate the foothills of the Laramie Mountains. The beautiful attractions within Curt Gowdy State Park are near the crossroads of two major interstates, I-80 and I-25. There are three reservoirs, Granite, Crystal and North Crow. Granite offers excellent rainbow trout and kokanee salmon fishing as well as space for water sports. Crystal, the smallest of the reservoirs, has shoreline fishing for brown trout, rainbow trout and kokanee salmon. Also, enjoy boating while at Crystal (15 horsepower limit). North Crow Reservoir is located 5 miles west of the Headquarter's Building. This is an unimproved fishing area. There are no picnic tables, water supply, comfort stations, and is day-use only—very natural. We stayed near the small lake years ago, the park was fairly new at the time.

There are many campgrounds by lakes at Glacier National Park .
Such as Many Glacier and Two Medicine and I believe Sprague Creek. Also St. Mary is close to St. Mary Lake but not right on it as I remember.

Tons of great camping in the North Idaho Panhandle. Twin Rivers Resort near Bonners Ferry is a beautiful place. Great camping at Priest Lake in a heartbreakingly beautiful setting. Sam Owen campground near Sandpoint, Idaho is another favorite. Farragut SP is one of the most outstanding parks anywhere. We also love Heyburn SP at the south end of Lake Couer D' Alene.

This is a great place to visit. Great lakes and rivers. Cool artsy towns in CDA and Sandpoint. Fabulous bike trails on old RR grades.

Virtually any campground along Flathead Lake in MT. Haven't been to Seeley Lake in MT, but I have a cousin with a marina there and he keeps telling me how nice it is!

If you get into the southwestern corner of Montana, by all means stop at Bannack SP - along side a nice creek and next to a real mining ghost town with more wild west history than you would ever want to know!

See my travel website and/or Picassa album site for more information on it. Great stop!

Oh, yes, We spend a couple of days at Massacre Rocks State Park in Idaho overlooking the Snake River. A very neat place with the camping sites up on the "bluff" over the river. There is another state park by American Falls as well on the way to Pocatello both off the interstate.

We have never been to this one, but it might have what you like.
Bear Lake State Park a large scenic lake often called "Caribbean of the Rockies" for its intense turquoise blue water. As visitors catch their first glimpse of the lake, they marvel at its color and wonder what makes the lake so blue. Sitting on one of its many white, sandy beaches, you can imagine yourself on your own little island. Offical Site
