Love this campground !

Nice campground! We stayed in Space #1 which is the most private! Picnic tables and fire pits are provided. They have pit toilets and our space was nicely shaded. Our 5th wheel is 28 feet long. The road is paved as are the sites! Interesting history on the campground name.

Nice, quiet, peaceful

I enjoyed staying here, the hot springs/campground nearby were closed (and for sale) so this was a pleasant suprise and respite. The spaces are far enough apart that you feel like you have privacy. The history here is the Indians would strip the bark from the ponderosa pines to get to the edible…

Quiet and clean

Amazing drinking water, very clean bathrooms, nicely kept sites. There are 5 FCFS sites and the others are reservable. The camps hosts are a little quirky but very nice and informative. Most sites are a bit hilly and you either have to walk uphill or downhill to your table and fire pit. Beautiful…

About This Campground

Indian Trees Campground is a quiet place to stay 3/4 miles off of Highway 93 in the mountains of southwest Montana. It provides access to a number of enjoyable recreational activities, as well as the vast scenery of the rugged Bitterroot National Forest. The area boasts wild game, high quality water and wild and scenic rivers.

Recreation

Visitors enjoy a variety of recreational opportunities, including hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding. A number of trails can be accessed near the campground, including the Nez Perce National Historic Trail and the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail. The Nez Perce NHT is a 3.1-mile trail begins near the turnoff to the campground and follows a portion of the original Nez Perce route. Explorers in the early 1800s also used the route, and wagon ruts are still visible along parts of the trail. The Continental Divide National Scenic Trail is also nearby. Fishing is available in nearby Camp Creek. Anglers will find mostly cutthroat trout but other species are available. A variety of wildlife, including big game like mule and white-tailed deer, elk and moose, makes its home in the area.

Facilities

The campground offers 15 single-family campsites, available for tent and RV camping. Most sites can accommodate up to 10 people and two vehicles, however, one site can accommodate up to 15 people. Site #6 is accessible, while Site #2 is designated for use by bicyclists. Each site is equipped with a table and campfire ring with grill. Accessible vault toilets and drinking water are provided. A campground host is on-site. Utility hookups are not available.

Natural Features

The campground is conveniently located near Highway 93, at an elevation of about 5,100 feet. It is named for the numerous scarred ponderosa pine trees in the area. Native American populations that once lived in or frequented the area stripped the trees of bark to expose and extract the tree's sweet cambium layer for food. The trees remain historically significant and provide shade to the campground.

Nearby Attractions

Popular Lost Trail Hot Springs is located less than a half-mile from the campground. Unlike the majority of natural hot springs, Lost Trail lacks sulfur, making it odorless and very comfortable for swimming.

A general store and lodging is located in Sula Store, about 5 miles north.
