What a beautiful place to spend time when you are in the area. We loved the peace and silence and we were lucky enough to see moose - about 7 of them in total.

The mountain is what is best of summer & winter sports, camping, fishing, hiking. We love it so much we want it to stay un-crowded!

Drove from Pittsburgh PA to Bighorn. The campground we stayed in was awesome! 5 campsites on a forest service road 20 miles long. It took it almost 2 hours to drive in. Well worth it! Solitude
