Beautiful!

One of our favorites places to boondock. Beautiful views, the lake is amazing, and the hike to the ice caves, while difficult, is SO worth it.

Location

Crystal Lake Group Campsite is located in Montana

Directions

From Lewistown, drive west on Montana Highway 200/US 87 for about 8 miles. Turn left (south) on Crystal Lake Road. Continue south, following the well-signed directions to the lake for 20 miles. At the "T" junction, turn left and continue on to Crystal Lake. The last 6 miles is paved and mostly a single lane. On December 1, the paved section is gated, and access beyond the gate is by snowmobile, skis, snowshoes or hiking only.
