Nice campground with great hiking oppertunity

Located in the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument at river mile 56.0. Eagle Creek is a very popular camping location on the river. The site has two vault toilets and five metal fire rings, several more rock fire rings are also available. Large cottonwoods provide shade and good locations to set up a hammock. Plenty of room to set up tents. Good hiking through a slot canyon is possible. Lewis and Clark camped near here on the other side of Eagle Creek on May 31, 1805.

Good spot are to find

This is a good primitive spot to camp at river mile 103.1 along the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument. However the location can be a challenge to find as the sign can't be seen from the river, small take out location. Site has 1 metal fire ring.

Lewis and Clark's May 27, 1805 campsite is located a few hundred yards down stream, just follow the trail to the marker.

First to Review
Great campsite along the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument

Nice campground with lots of room. Very clean Vault Toilet. Fire rings and picnic tables available. One downside is that their is not a good location to land a canoe at the campground, need to use the boat launch 2-3 tenths of a mile further down river. No water available. dumpsters are available.

Lewis and Clark's May 28, 1805 marker is a few hundred feet from the Visitor Assistant station.

Nice but very busy campground

A very popular developed boat camp at mile 76.8 of the Upper Missouri River Break National Monument. Site is an fenced area with two vault toilets, one shelter and five metal fire rings. Site is very busy, but is large and can handle a lot of campers.

Corps of Discovery camped here on both their western and easter journeys on the Missouri. Site can be found a short distance upriver from the camping area, a trail leads to the site and is marked with a brass marker plate.

Nice camp with shelters

Nice developed camp site at river mile 63.0 on the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument. Site has two vault toilets and four metal fire ring, no tables but several benches. Shelters provide the only shade for the camp. Just down river is Hole-in-the-Wall. Nice trail leads to the hole-in-the-wall. To get to trail canoe down river another 0.8 mile, stopping at the first large cottonwood, you will find a trail here.

Very nice site canoe site

This is a very nice camp location at around mile 48.8 of the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument. Site is in a grove of large cottonwoods. One fire ring and one outhouse at the site.

Great camp along the Upper Missouri River Breaks

This is an enjoyable campground along the Upper Missouri River Breaks on river mile 41.5. Site has two vault toilets, 13 picnic table, and 9 firer rings. Visit Center provides WiFi. This is a major launch area for floating the Upper Missouri Rive Breaks National Monument. Very friendly camp staff with vast knowledge of the river.

Campsite are in a parking area

We gave this 2 stars as the camp areas are just fire rings along the edge of a parking area. Does have a outhouse. Located on the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument rive mile 20.3

Nice Primitive Boat Camp

Site is located just upriver from the Wood Bottom Developed site and is a nice camp site, nicer than the sites at Wood Bottom. Located along the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument in a stretch of cottonwoods at river mile 19.4.

Nice primitive camp

We give this our highest primitive camp review of 3 stars. Site had one fire ring that would be safe to make a fire at as the area around the ring is free of vegetation. Nice camp locations under the cotton woods. No outhouse or tables. A bonus is the swim someone has made in a large cottonwood. Located at Upper Missouri Rive Breaks National Monument river mile 16.2.

Don't camp here

This is a primitive boat camp along the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument. Would not spend the night here. The site is listed as having 2 fire rings, but we could not find them due to the 3 foot plus high vegetation. If you did find them you would start a wild fire with all the high vegetation. With all the vegetation couldn't locate a place that we would want place a tent. Being just 5.7 miles down the river to early to stop for the night

Great little campground at begining of Upper Missouri River Breaks Natl Mon

Nice small campground is the launch point for starting at river mile zero for floating the 149 mile Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument. Has 25 tent sites and 7 RV sites with hook-ups. Showers are available in the fairgrounds for those staying at the campground. Jointly run by Chouteau County and the BLM. Tent sites $10, RV's $22, full hookups $22.

Floating that Mighty Mo?

This site is used almost entirely for people floating the wild and scenic Missouri River past the White Cliffs and the Hole-in-the-Wall. The site has a vault toilet, lots of room for your rig and obviously has river-front access. Bugs can get horrendous here in late summer. It's in the open with few trees, but it is what it is. It's the spot to rest/put-in/take-out on a float.

Largest County Park in the Country

This isn't one campground, its dozens. Beaver Creek is the largest county park in the nation. It technically requires a $55 annual park pass for camping or usage of the park. The pass can be purchased at Stromberg Sinclair in Havre or other locations in Havre. There are two lakes with decent fishing in the park and a lovely stream. Mount Otis has a well-maintained trail to the top, and there is a 3 mile nature trail. I use this park all the time! Perfect for picnics, camping by RV or tent, hiking, fishing and bon fires.

Fish, don't Camp

This is a great place to catch Pike, Walleye and Crappie. I would not want to camp at the tailwaters, but I recommend fishing.

Not fun, but it is a campground

If you're doing the Northern Tier and need somewhere to stay, this counts as a place to stay. If you are looking for an adventure, this isn't the spot. Good for RVs at events.

Of all the places to camp in the Beaver Creek, Don't Camp Here

It's a good place to put in for fishing, but it's really exposed without great views. Camp by second lake or the creek. See other Beaver Creek post.

Summer on the Hi-Line

Tons of people love to camp by Fresno in the summer. It's typically a boating/rv spot - some park their RV all summer at Fresno. It's a huge reservoir with great walleye fishing. Not pristine or tranquil, but a good time. Not for ideal for tent camping.
