Greek Creek Campground is a small 15 site campground in the Gallatin National Forest. The campground is located on both sides of U.S. Highway 191. The West portion of the campground has 6 sites and sits on the shore of the Gallatin River. The East portion has 9 sites. The campground is paved with gravel parking pads. Each side of the campground has ADA accessible vault toilets. Sites are$20 per night and all sites can be reserved so the chance of finding a spot available on the weekend will be difficult unless you have reserved a site. I was unable to find an available site and I arrived at the campground at 9am on a Friday morning. This is going to be a loud campground at nice with the busy U.S. Highway 191 running through the campground, so unless you are a sound sleeper you might just want to pass on this campground. All campsites are equipped with a picnic table and metal fire ring. Both sides have water and trash service, including recycling. The campground is nicely wooded with Fir, Spruce and Cottonwood trees. The Gallatin River is a popular Rafting and Kayaking location with numerous outfitters available, the river is also a popular fly fishing destination. If you enjoy hiking many trail heads are available in the area.
Greek Creek is a fantastic place to camp if you want a convenient place between Bozeman and Big Sky. It was easy to find and right off the highway. However, that is also its biggest downfall. All of the campsites are very close to the highway and you can hear the vehicles driving by at all times of the day. The noise is the only reason I give it 3 stars.
The campground itself is nice with some beautiful trees and shading. We stayed on the side across from the river but were able to easily cross the highway to go over when we wanted. Biggest fault is the noise from the highway, particularly the semis driving by at night, which made it hard to sleep.
Greek creek is a great spot if you looking for river activities! This campsite is split by the hwy so head towards the river side it boasts great fishing and boating access. If heading to the park it's only 40 mins away!
Despite the lack of some amenities (e.g., no showers and no firewood for sale when we were there), we greatly enjoyed our stay at this National Forest campground located right on the Gallatin River. As kayakers, we were there to paddle the river so we couldn't have asked for a better location. We stayed in tent site #11, right on the river, which also served as our put-in for the class III-IV Greek Creek to Spanish Creek whitewater run. The campground is easy to find right on Hwy 191 but once off the road and down by the river, it has a more remote feel to it. Campsites are wooded and we saw bighorn sheep right along the road! Groceries are available about 5 miles away. Reservations for this campground can be made online at www.recreation.gov or by calling 1-877-444-6777.
