Wild Bill Lake is a man made lake stocked with whitefish. It is set in beautiful country 5 or so miles outside Red Lodge Montana. You can fish, relax or, as we did, walk round the lake - which takes about 25 minutes. The Wild Bill lake walk is an ideal warm up walk if you are thinking of more... More

Really lame and small, thought it would be better. We were told by a native that it would be amazing, but all there is is a couple picnic tables and a big pond.

We parked by the gate as the road is still closed. It was a perfect walk, a gradual grade on the road and one small climb to the lake. We are just getting back in shape and walked it easily. I am from So. Calif, and even though I live in Washington state, I had never seen a frozen lake!... More

You should definitely stop by Wild Bill Lake if you are in the area. Our family has such great memories from our visits. We took both our Son's on their first fishing trips there several years ago. We were fortunate to schedule time for a visit there this year and enjoyed a picnic lunch. A great place to visit!

I heard from lots of people that this is a great pond/lake to take kids learning to fish. I agree with that, but it was just too crowded for my taste. It was hard to find a spot with my 2 girls.

Nice lake close to town. Nice well kept trails make walking around Lake easy. Water is so clear you can watch the trout chase your bait. Perfect fishing for the young ones. Took my Grandson here for his first Fly Fishing trip and we had a blast!

Nice walk, went off the CC ski road and perhaps should have stayed on it to stay along the steam. Good pics of a nice wooded, shaded walk. Saw lots of families and dogs.

Take the kids here for good fishing. Use corn and bobbers, the lake has small trout that are stocked. There are picnic tables for day use, it is bear country so be aware

Been fishing here since I was a child. Took my dad here this past summer and even in his wheel chair we could access both picnic tables and make it up and around the lake.
