Nestled next to an old ghost town with a creek flowing around it. No att coverage, super quiet. No hook ups. Vault toilets, community water faucet. Plenty of room for our 30’ trailer and truck. Just empty your tanks and fill up on water, food and supplies in Dillon. Heavily shaded. Bring a generator to charge you bank, though I felt bad about running them because of the disruption in the serenity.
Wonderful location with very little wifi services. If you want to relax in a very nice, park setting, surrounded by mountains, this would be your place.
Big spaces in the middle area. Smaller spots on the river. Modest but competent shower and laundry room.
Would stay again.
If you want complete solitude from the internet and TV this is the place for you to reconnect with nature. (see video)
Being new RV'ers we didn't do our due diligence before booking, we went by pictures and the park did their part. They said poor internet and poor cell service we just didn't believe them. There was internet at the office but it was 56k speed.
Having to run our company from the road, traveling with three kids under 5, 3 dogs and a cat, all over 5 we need to be able to work.
Here's what we loved:
- Beautiful and clean
- Quiet and close to the river
- Incredible dog area
- Level parking
- Staff was incredible
We weren't fond of:
- No cell service (AT&T & Sprint)
- Poor WiFi
We gave this a 4-star review because it's exactly what it said it was and the staff was very kind.
If you are a digital nomad and stay here then go to Salmon (30-minute drive), turn left, and a few blocks down on your left is the public library. It's the best wife you'll find and you can access it from the street.

Went on a last minute get away for the weekend. Loved the spot camped right on Grass Hopper Creek and its walking distance to Bannack Ghost Town. Friendly Camp host and you can buy firewood from him as well!
Stayed at wagonhammer campground in September. Great location & super clean! Our campsite was right next to the river. Dog friendly and there is a dog island that your fur kid can run around off leash! They also have bathrooms, showers (on demand hot water), laundry mat, fire pits,and a small store in the office.
The staff is super friendly! Great spot for my quick couple day trip to the hot springs!
If you like history, ghost towns and camping then Bannack State Park is for you. Bannack Montana was the 1st Territorial Capital of Montana. The Ghost town allows you a look at how settlers and miners leaved in the early day of Montana. See the 1st Territorial Governors Manson (ok, small cabin). Almost all of building you can enter. The best times to visit is when reenactments are happening at the park. The state park has two small campgrounds, Vigilante Campground with 15 sites and one Tipi site. One of the sites at the Vigilante site is only for bikers. Vigilante campsites can be reserved. The other campground is Road Agent Campground. Road Agent has 8 sites. Both sites have Vault Toilets, water and trash bins.
Vigilante campground at Bannack State Park is perfect for those who like ghost towns. The Campground has 16 sites, one site is just for those arriving by bike. A tipi is available for $30 a night for Montana residents or $42 for non-residents. Sites are a little pricey starting at $18 for residents $28 for non-residents. Kids visiting the park can work on a Jr. Ranger program. Great time to visit is when they have volunteers dressed in period clothing. You can go in to and check out just about every building in the town. The state park has a second campground, Road Agent, near this one.
You can stay in a teepee. Excellent campsite right next to a ghost town.
Campgrounds are right by the creek, awesome 100+ year old buildings. Check out Bannack Days!
This town holds quite a lot of history. It's open to exploration by the public. Every building is a slowly fading time capsule of a long forgotten time. I enjoyed trekking up and down the single street - investigating at my leisure. The campground itself was clean and safe.
