Very Quiet Campground

THIS CAMPGROUND IS IN MONTANA, NOT IN IDAHO It’s 15 miles down a well maintained road with beautiful views of the cabinet mountains. I was there a Saturday in July and only two campsites were being used. There is a 1.7 mile “nature trail” that circles the lake, and there is also a trail head to a more substantial hike with reportable good views. The campground is free and has a 16 night maximum stay. There are two vault toilets at the campground supplied with tissue.

Nice campground, inexpensive

There's a public access gold panning area near this campground. There's also a nice little lake here. There is a pit toilet a short distance from the campground. The only water source is the pond but it's easy to get to. There is no cell phone service.
