Off Cave Falls Road to the north is Horseshoe Lake. This is an excellent place for camping and fishing. Since the lake has a gentle sloping floor, it is a good place to take children camping or fishing. One of the most scenic views of the Tetons can be viewed from this area. It is a beautiful lake with plenty of lily pads. The Fish and Game Department plant fish in this lake as soon as the snow conditions allow. It provides camping spots in a leisure environment.

Several trails start at the campground and go into Yellowstone Park and surrounding canyons. Power-driven watercrafts are not permitted on Horseshoe Lake, only rowboats, canoes or rafts.
