2 Reviews of Colter Campground
Inexpensive tranquility close to Yellowstone & Beartooth Highway

Dispersed camping in great country!  Pit toilets, water available, garbage & food lockers.  Hard side units only as this is Grizzly country!  The northeast entrance to Yellowstone is only some 10 miles away, and the Beartooth highway is one of the most scenic drives you'll find!  We enjoyed the campground immensely for it's quiet serenity after the crowds of Yellowstone.  Climb the cliffs surrounding your site, enjoy the wildlife wandering through, and relax.

Trees with a view

Sometimes you just want to see the mountains.

This campground is set mostly in younger pines, which doesn't provide the most shade, but does provide amazing views of the surrounding mountains. Luckily, it's high elevation Montana, so you don't often need a lot of shade :)
