“"Hidden Gem" the locals would like to keep to themselves, and for good reason!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

Stopped in on our way home from Yellowstone Park, and am I glad we did! We reserved a campsite on line without knowing much about this place, and when we finally found it, the place was awesome! I think it is 6 - 10 miles off the interstate, but the beauty and tranquility made the short drive well worth it. It is a reservoir lake, as so many are, but the shores by Tatanka campground were lined with trees on one side, and granite cliffs on the other. We had a travel trailer, and our site had electricity and water, no sewer, but there was a free dump station at the front gate, with water for rincing etc. Camp ground was full, so having a reservation is a must, especially on a weekend. Don't be fooled as you try to find this place by the farmland surrounding the southern end of the lake, once inside the park it is a whole different world. Our site was treed, level, and had a fire ring and picnic table as well. The other campers were mostly locals out for a weekend of fun and boating/skiing/fishing. One fellow we talked with even offered to take our group of 4, out on his pontoon boat, to see the lake, and take us down to the dam. Unfortunatly we were leaving, but it was a generous offer! If travelling near this state park I highly reccommend spending a nite or two there, We will plan to stay there on our next trip to the area. Bring all you need for your stay, as there is a marina with some convienience items, but not much for groceries. Enjoy!

“Keyhole is always awesome!”

Been going there since I was a child and it has only gotten better. Now I take my children there. Great place to picnic, swim, boat, camp or just relax.

“Beautiful lake. Not much in the way of facilities.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

Easy to get lost both approaching the park and once you're in it.

“The great outdoors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

The best thing about Keyhole is it is large and largely unpopulated during the middle of the week. If you come skiing in the middle of the week you may have the entire lake to yourself. They might be some fisherman you would want to stay away from otherwise the water is yours
