Lookout Campground

Lookout Campground is on the 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. There are no designated sites (except 4 picnic sites) but the area can accommodate about 20 single camp sites. 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.
