    Is there a pump for water near the campsites? Where is the drinking water located?

    Can you swim in the lakes?

  4. Lorraine says:

    I have lived in the state of Wy my entire life. I have never been so unhappy with the camping at flakes as I am now. It is not fair to us that make last minute plans due to jobs etc.

    Some of the causeway campsites are listed as walk in, but the maps appear to have roads leading to them . . . anyone have any help here? We are tent campers, but with the car . . . I don’t want to have to haul our gear a long distance.
