I would think you either need to decide this campground is a destination or, like us, pick it as a midway point between Yellowstone and Glacier. 21 sites, no reservations but was told the campground rarely fills. I really did not feel the love when we arrived here. We didn’t know the layout and after Sites 1-6, the (gravel) road seemed to go on for quite some distance without seeing any additional sites. We settled into Site 4, which was very close to Site 5. This would be good if you were with friends, but we hedged our bets that after 5 pm on a Sunday, no one would take that spot and we were right. These sites have no shade, however, and it was very hot until the sun dipped below the rock walls surrounding the campground. Only pit toilets but they were exceptionally clean. Early the next morning, I set out for the mile walk to see the rest of the park. Site 7 is about a quarter-mile from Site 6 and has a seemingly private pit toilet as Sites 8-21 are another half mile up the road from Site 7. Sites 8-21 have a few pit toilets (also clean) and drinking water (Sites 1-7 do not). They are also more shaded. There is a nice waterfall accessible via a short, paved path from the end of the park as well as an additional trailhead (this I did not explore). Two small day-use areas; one between sites 6 and 7 and one at the end of the loop. The host was very friendly. There is a pack-in/pack-out policy. By the time we left, I was loving this place much more and might have given it five stars except for the steep price: $28 for non-residents for basically dry camping– compared to what we got in Idaho, this price is very high!
quick stay overnight. Wish we could stay longer.
We stumbled on this campground by accident but were very surprised by how wonderful it was. The campground is tucked between two imposing rock walls that deliver wonderful sunset and sunrise scenery. The camp spots are really nice with level spots for parking or tents, lots of nice tall trees (for hammocks!), easy access to a beautiful trail with stunning sights and some relic surprises and nicely positioned boulders for privacy between spots. We're definitely going back there!
