Campsites increased at Henrys Lake State Park

Additional campsites are now available at Henrys Lake State Park, located 15 miles west of Yellowstone National Park and known as a world-famous trout fishing hole.

The popular park now offers 83 campsites and three ADA campsites, an increase over its 44 past sites. A new loop was added at the campground to almost double the number of sites available.

With the announcement of the new sites, there's still time to get a campsite at Henrys Lake for the Fourth of July weekend as of early July 1.

“One of Idaho's great high mountain lakes, Henrys Lake is the kind of place that fishers dream about,” said Jennifer Okerlund, communications manager with the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation. “Anglers fish for cutthroat, brook and cut-bow hybrid trout in what is considered one of the finest trout fisheries in the West.”

Reservations for stays within Henrys Lake State Park can be made as late as one day prior to arrival online at www.parksandrecreation.idaho.gov or by calling (888) 922-6743.
