Lookout Boat Launch and Campground is found on Blue River Reservoir. The campground includes picnic sites, a boat launch, floating dock, and a day use/overflow parking area. It is located on a beautiful open meadow with plenty of sunshine. Lookout Campground is popular for group camping, as there are no designated sites. There is room for about 20 vehicles. Some sites have tables and fire rings while others do not and are more primitive. Drinking water, vault toilets, and firewood for sale are provided. There is a host onsite. While the day use parking and boat launch area is paved, the campground side is gravel.
At a Glance
8/30/2016: The water levels on Blue River Reservoir have been drawn down to the point where boat launches are no longer available. With a four-wheel drive vehicle, boats may be launched at nearby Saddle Dam (2.5 miles away). There is still plenty of water at Blue River Reservoir for kayaks and rafts.
