Bull Trout Campground lies adjacent to the 100-acre Bull Trout Lake and 6-acre Martin Lake which offer great fishing from shore or non-motorized boat. The campground offers group sites for that special reunion or company retreat and equestrian sites for the horseback riding enthusiast. Use is high during the summer months and the campsites are usually full on weekends and holidays. The road into the campground is usually not clear of snow until the middle of June, please check with the Lowman Ranger District for current road conditions.
The campground is situated in a mixed-growth forest of Douglas fir and lodgepole pine, which offers partial shade. Summer wildflowers are abundant.
Bull Trout Lake offers excellent canoeing and kayaking opportunities, as the lake is for non-motorized watercraft only. Anglers fish for brook and rainbow trout. A primitive boat ramp is located on the west side of the lake.
Martin Lake is nearby, offering canoeing and fishing. The lake is stocked with rainbow trout.
Many miles of trails can be found in the area, including the 11-mile Warm Spring Trail for hikers. The 35-mile Kirkham Ridge Trail is open to hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding and dirt biking.
