Small but works!

Nice campground with a kids fishing pond

This is a nice campground just outside of Townsend Montana. Good information signs about the area and the Lewis and Clark journey. A nice fishing pond is available for children 14 and under. Campground is on the edge of the Missouri river. The only draw back is noise from the nearby highway.

About This Campground

Indian Road Group Use Shelter is located at the very southern end of Canyon Ferry Reservoir at Indian Road Campground. Indian Road Campground and Group Use Shelter is located just north of town of Townsend on Circleville Road. Indian Creek was named by the first prospector on the creek, who had an Indian wife. Placer mining occurred here during the 1860s and 1870s. Near the Townsend turnoff for Indian Creek Road were the mining camps of Hog ’Em, Cheat ’Em, and Rob ’Em. Natural Features: Indian Road Group Use Shelter sits along the Missouri River at the south end of Canyon Ferry Reservoir between the Big Belt and Elkhorns Mountain ranges. Recreation: Canyon Ferry Reservoir offers a wide range of year-round recreational opportunities. Water related activities include everything from swimming and fishing to sailing and motor-boating. Canoeists and kayakers explore the many quiet backwater bays. Jet skiers, windsurfers and water skiers skim the summer waves, while winter draws ice fishermen, ice boaters and skaters. Facilities: Indian Road Group Use Shelter is a 30 X 44 shelter with eight picnic tables. There are four accessible vault toilets along with a small fishing pond for children. Nearby Attractions: Indian Road Group Use Area on Canyon Ferry Reservoir is located about halfway between Yellowstone National Park and Glacier National Park and 30 miles south of the capital city of Helena, Montana.
