Right on the road, the lake has a picnic area and wheelchair accessible trails. A restroom is also available. Some people were fishing in the lake.

If you are staying in Red Lodge for a day and want to entertain your kids, ages 4 to 11?, get worms and take them to Wild Bill Lake for an hour or two of trout fishing.

The lake was smaller than I thought it would be but it was a pretty lake. Great place for kids to fish.

I would hardly classify this as a lake. It was a small pond. It was great for kids, but for adults I don't think it was worth even stopping.

Wild Bill Lake is a beautiful and easy stop, just outside of downtown Red Lodge. Greater and more secluded spaces abound, however, and are just found just a short drive further down West Fork Road. I'd recommend those looking for adventure explore other nearby access...More
