Blackfoot Canyon campground is a little secrete Forest Service campground west of Lincoln Montana on the Blackfoot river. Secrete in that you will not find this campground on the Forest Service's web site, no signage along highway 200 to indicate that it is their. You can't find this on a map unless you look at an old map. Old maps list this as Blackfoot Canyon Campground but you will not find that name on the sign for the campground when you reach it, the campground sign says“Moose Creek Campground” but this is not Moose Creek Campground, that campground is an hour away from this location and on the other side of the continental divide. This campground has 8 sites with concrete Forest Service picnic tables, fire rings are made of rocks. Other pull outs are through out the campground area but with out tables or rings. A small vault toilet is available and was very well stocked with toilet paper and was clean. The campground does have one garbage can, it is located in the vault toilet, so be sure to close the door to keep the animals out. Campground is on the Blackfoot river, and if you like to fish there is a great fishing hole with nice large trout in it. I caught a 14½ inch Brown trout and spotted many more. You will need to bring your own water or a filter to get it from the river. The best thing is that this secrete campground is free. Campground was located 1/10 of a mile off of Highway 200, but the tree cover is so thick you can barely hear the traffi
My husband and I stayed here for about 14 days in July 2017. It is free to stay here. The campground has vaulted toilets. There are at least 2 camp sites that are literally on the banks of the Blackfoot river. My husband caught several nice trout while we were there and if you walk down river a bit by a bridge there are a few nice swimming holes. The campground is not that far from Lincoln for a quick trip to the grocery store.
