Description - A small, get-away park, Llewellyn Johns' ten first-come, first-served campsites offer spur-of-the-moment camping.

Or, if you prefer peace and quiet, this is a great campground to just sit back and relax.
Many historic figures have crossed through the Shadehill/Llewellyn Johns area, including Hugh Glass and Custer's 1874 Expedition. In 1823, Glass was attacked by a grizzly bear in this area, which is documented in the novel Lord Grizzly.
