Bismarck Lake Campground is set amidst a scattering of aspen groves and Ponderosa pine on the southeast edge of Bismarck Lake at 5,000 feet. This is an ideal setting for guests seeking recreation and relaxation in the Black Hills National Forest. Sites in the campground are widely spaced and open up to views of lakes, providing adequate privacy for visitors.
