Description

This short, 1/2 mile trail leads to the first of 3 campsites found on Fan Creek. The campsite is about 3.5 miles from the highway and has the advantage of being just before the trail makes a difficult ford of Fan Creek. The creek can be thigh-deep till mid-July, and this spring-fed creek runs fairly high even into August.

The campsite itself is nicely situated among an unburned spruce-fir forest, and is just a short distance from the banks of Fan Creek.

This campsite is favored by anglers pursuing illusive 9-10 inch cutthroat and rainbow trout in the creek.

Thanks to guidebook author, Tom Carter, for sharing this trail description. To learn more about visiting Yellowstone, check out his book, Day Hiking Yellowstone.
