Beautiful hike with breathtaking views!

By far one of my favorite Mt lake hikes! With great camping at both the lower and upper lakes, I recommend using the trails app to help navigate through the switch backs, and have lots of water! Me and my friends stayed at the lower lake, both hammock and tent camping.

8 miles in and worth it!

We like the more remote and peaceful campgrounds. We took a chance and got off the i-90 at cataldo and drove 8 miles into the woods. The road started out paved then went to a nice gravel road in the last 2 miles were pretty bumpy. Then we arrived at lost moose campground. Peaceful and in the woods.…

Saw a train drive by

Super dope spot. Just past the national forest sign on the left. Goes down a trail marked with a sign that says 83525 or something. Just keep going down you’ll be fine and there’s cool spots just above the river

Lovely hosts

Small RV park, with a few tent sites. Hosts were lovely people. Large clean bathrooms and showers. Park like environment.

Was warned a Moose family likes to walk through, but didn’t see them.

Great spot to enjoy peace.

It was a fond memory as a child. Going to the water pump and enjoying natural mineral water. It's nestled a little ways back so it can be missed easily if you are not paying attention but well worth the trip.

Location differs from map

Great spot! Plenty of tree cover and great views. Minimal highway noise. Right off 135, don't trust map location on this app. 2 bars 4G Verizon. Right on the water.

Very spacious!

Easy access road and clean spots with plenty of space between sites (until towards the end of the road). Had great cell service too. Saw a black bear one morning near our campsite.

Great Spot

We loved this spot! There were maybe 6-7 dispersed camping areas next to the river (some had metal fire rings, some didn’t). The ground was pretty flat and it was super quiet minus the sound of the river. We didn’t see the pit toilets, but they may have been further down the road. Definitely would…

Thanks Dyrt! I can’t believe this exists.

From other guests it sounds as if there are several sites at this location. The first one was taken and we passed under the railroad trestle and drive 1/4 miles to a pull in place that sits in an embankment overlooking the Clark Fork.

Beautiful and secluded spot. No amenities other than a fire…

Backcountry!

My favorite spots are these back country spots with my partner.

There are several sites near here and it’s remote enough to sight in your guns and do a little practice.

Bring all your camping supplies, as there are not services like water, which is just how we like them! 

As you would expect…

Peaceful, great campground!

This was the last stop on our 2 week summer road trip.  We wanted something quiet in the trees, and this was perfect!  There are some really great, secluded sites. Bathrooms were clean and well maintained.

Very friendly staff

At first we were a little taken aback by all the train noises (the puppy wasn’t too excited about it) but they didn’t run too late into the night. Close to town and when we stayed (early October) there were plenty of open RV sites. It almost felt like we had the place to ourselves. The facilities…

Great introduction to backpacking, beautiful location

This was my first ever backpacking experience and was a great introduction for me. We did the 3.5-mile trail. It was challenging and encouraging. My dog loved it too, and she's a larger breed! I would recommend this trek for anyone who is wanting to learn and practice backpacking skills. There are…

Train noise was no joke but otherwise great

Nice campground, privacy btwn sites was good, right on river, beautiful scenery. We were there late September and it was pretty vacant. The noise from the trains was no joke. Woke us up about 5 times overnight, fortunately toddler slept through it. Overall would stay again.

Perfect camping layover spot

Lots of camp sites right on the river. Spaced out very nicely. You can hear some highway traffic and the train does com right up next to the river. Not too busy but we were there on a weekday.
