Langohr Campground is located in scenic Hyalite Canyon on the Bozeman Ranger District of the Gallatin National Forest. It is located just 12 miles south of Bozeman, Mont.
The surrounding area offers many outdoor recreational opportunities, including fishing, hiking and climbing.
Hyalite Creek provides great fishing for Yellowstone cutthroat, Arctic grayling and brook trout. Many hiking trails can be found in Hyalite Canyon.
The campground offers several single-family campsites. A GROUP PICNIC AREA (SITE 20) for DAY USE ONLY is also available and can accommodate up to 50 people. Tables and campfire rings are provided, as are vault toilets, drinking water and trash collection.
The campground sits next to Hyalite Creek, at an elevation of 6,200 feet. Most campsites are situated in open meadows along the creek. Some are located among scattered pine and fir trees.
Hyalite Reservoir is just 3.5 miles from the campground. The scenic 206-acre lake offers many recreational activities, including boating, canoeing, fishing, hiking, climbing and picnicking.
The popular Hyalite Peak Trail begins near the reservoir. The 7.5-mile one-way trail gains 3,450 feet in elevation as is climbs past numerous waterfalls to beautiful Hyalite Lake and Peak.

About 20 minutes south of Bozeman, MT on scenic Hyalite Canyon Road sits Langohr Campground. There are 19 spacious single sites and the 20th site is a group picnic site for day use. Langohr Campground runs along Hyalite Creek and is tucked inside Custer Gallatin National Forest in a small open meadow with Douglas fir, Lodgepole pine, and Englemann Spruce.
I was fortunate to find a campsite as a walk-in even after arriving mid-afternoon at the beginning of June 2019 because it was too late to reserve online. Each site does have a picnic table and fire ring, and electrical sites are available. Some are drive-in or back into sites, and a few are literally next to Hyalite Creek which is an added bonus. A heavy snowfall occurred a week before and remnants of it were scattered along the campground. Good thing I brought a snow scraper to clear the picnic table of snow. The fee is $20.00 per campsite for two vehicles and $8.00 for any additional vehicles. The group picnic site is $45.00 for day use. I paid cash for the site, but I believe you may also pay by credit card.
Many of the campers were settling in and had parked RVs and pop-ups. Pets are allowed but must be on a leash as wildlife such as bears, deers, moose, and elk frequent the area. Bear lockers should be used for food storage or properly stored in vehicles. There are huge bear safe trash and recycling containers near the entrance for campers to use. The bathroom is clean, free of odor and bugs, and it is a vault toilet. There are no showers, dump station, or camp store, but you are close to Bozeman. The camp host was settled on site 11 and sells firewood for $6.00. You can take a walk along the Hyalite Creek or drive 3.5 miles south down to Hyalite Reservoir for other activities such as fishing, kayaking, canoeing, climbing, hiking, and boating. The night sky was pretty spectacular especially with the trees around on a clear day.
Beautiful, well designed campsite. Short drive to hylite reservoir for swimming fishing, boating, picnic area etc. Plus the mountain views are amazing.There is a nearby stream with great fishing. There are several short stroller or handicap accessible hikes or awesome single track hikes or mountains biking. Must reserve like 6 months ahead.
Not bad but better option if you continue up to the lake.
Langohr Campground is a nice campground besides Hyalite Creek, it was even better when I camped here about 20 years ago during the summer months, this last visit was in the snow, but we won't let the snow affect this review. The campground has two different sections to it. While most sites overlook the willow lined Hyalite creek, turning to the left or the right once you enter the campground will give you different camping experiences. If you turn to the left you will find most of the campsites are in a grassy open area with little shade. If you want a campsite with two picnic tables a the site then go to the left as sites 17 and 18 have two tables each. If you turn to the right the campsites tucked in among a stand of pine trees and would provide lots of shade. The campground also has a large day use picnic area, and a trail head. The campground and parking pads are paved through out the campground. The campground has 19 sites, water, trash and service. This is bear territory so all food must be locked in a car or the provided bear proof lockers provided. Our October visit was after the mid September shutting down of the campground, but we could still gain access as their was not a closed gate like the other campgrounds further up the road, this was likely due to a trail head located in the campground.
I stayed here on a 3 day weekend camping trip to just get away. It was amazing. Most sites are by the creek even though the website says different. We took site number 5 and I was extremely happy with it. it was peaceful and close to all the major hikes and waterfalls! The campground host was amazing! He brought us firewood and kept up to make sure every thing was okay!
This campground is very nice, next to Langohr Creek. Kids play in creek and build rock dams. Nice walk around campground. Camp host was very cool. Mountain wildflowers abundant! Got to camp next to Alpen Girls outdoor youth camp, which was cool to see youngsters learning outdoors skills.
We camped here for one night in May. The road is easily accessible. All of the river sites were taken. Our campsite was along the hillside. there are pit toilets and picnic tables. A thunderstorm rolled through the canyon the night that we were there. fortunately we stayed dry inside of our tent. This is a beautiful area and I would love to return to explore the canyon further.
We were looking for a campground near Bozeman and a friend recommended Hyalite Canyon. We lucked out finding Langohr! Wonderful and secluded camping spots, and we found one right by a river. This was probably the best campsite of our week-long Montana camping excursion.
This is a fun campground, albeit a little difficult to find a spot unless you reserve one ahead of time. This campground offers large sites (some are pull in and others are pull through), water sources, pit toilets, hiking access, electrical hookups, fire pits, tables, and some nice views. Depending on which site you get you can camp on a hillside above the river or right next to the river. The Hyalite reservoir area offers many opportunities to have fun. Some of the noteworthy hikes in the area are Hyalite Trail and Emerald Lake Trail (these are both part of the trail share program so watch out for bikes on certain days). If you desire getting out on the water Hyalite Reservoir is a perfect place to float or paddle. There are also some trails that leave directly from the northern end of the campground. Overall, this is a wonderful place to stay.
