Very Nice Campround

Very clean facilities, friendly owners, and a nice fire pit.

Relaxing and peaceful

It’s $12 a night per campground if you have your Montana’s fishing license, camp spots are right next to the river with easy access.

The campsite comes with a small fire pit and a picnic table there’s also access to restrooms in the warmer seasons.

There are no time restrictions and no gate, first come first served, about 15 spots.

Great friendly place

Great place .has all the hook ups.and public restrooms and laundry room. Place for tents. Great place to stay

Quiet camp with good fishing

Monture Creek Fishing Access site is a nice small campground/fishing access site with five campsites. Two just off of Hwy 200 and three more back away from the highway. Monture Creek has good trout fishing with the creek being only about 100 feet from the campsites. One vault toilet serves the fishing access and camping area. Each campsite has a picnic table and metal fire ring. Sites 1, 2 and 3 sit far enough back that the large pine trees do a pretty good job of blocking most of the highway noise. Like all the fishing access sites with camping in the state, the nightly rate is based on if you have a fishing license and are a Montana resident or not. This is a trash-in, trash-out site and no water is available so come prepared.

Cross country camper

The worst KOA we have ever stayed. Very unprofessional and rude staff, no hot showers, weak wifi, in the middle of a run down mobile home park. Will no ever stay there again.

Camp and fish on the Blackfoot river

Harry Morgan Fishing Access Site provides fishing access to the Blackfoot River and is a small three site campground. If you want a nice quiet camping and fishing trip then you might just want to consider Harry Morgan FAS. Three sites mean that their will not many will be at the campground at any one time, even less when you consider that this site is a dry campground and you will need to take your trash with you. The three sites are well spread apart. Each site has a picnic table and metal fire ring. The campground has one small vault toilet. The FAS has a boat launch, only non-motorized boat use is allowed on the Blackfoot river. On my visit only one other vehicle was at the site and they where their only for a short time fishing, so after about an hour I had the site to myself. This is bear country so you will need to make sure that everything is stored in your vehicle or use the campgrounds one bear proof food locker.

Big Nelson not big no no no it is small very small.

Big Nelson Campground is anything but big. This is a tiny cramped campground. I found 6 campsites, but the Forest Service website list this campground as having four. With the exception of site three, all the other sites require you to park in a parking area. Site 3 was the first site I noticed on arriving at the campground and was located to the left of the parking area. Sites 4, 5 and 6 require parking in the parking area and walking down a set of stairs to access. Sites 4, 5, and 6 can only be accessed from the stairs, driving down the road to the boat launch will only get you to the boat launch. Site 4 is on the left at the bottom of the stairs. Site 4 is tiny, it is a picnic table next to a metal fire ring, if you want to pitch a tent at site four you would need to do it next to the fire ring and skip making a fire or pitch it in a small flat area above the picnic table near the parking area on the opposite side of the fence. Site four really doesn't have much room for a tent. Sites 5 and 6 are fairly roomy, especially when compared to site 4. Site 5 is on the right side of the stairs, plenty of room for a tent, nice view of the lake and has a metal fire ring and picnic table. Site 6 can be reached by walking through site 5 or from the boat launch road. You could unload your gear at site 6 right from your car, but would can not park next to site 6, you will need to drive back up to the camping area. Site 6 has plenty of room for a tent and also has a picnic table and metal fire ring. The campground has one small vault toilet and is at the beginning of the road to the boat ramp. The boat ramp isn't really a ramp, but the shore of the lake with a gradual entrance in to the water. Campsite 2 I found as I was leaving the area, it is just past the vault toilet as you leave. Campsite 2 requires a walk down a few stairs. It is a tight campsite with just enough room for a small tent next to the picnic table. A metal fire ring is on the opposite side of the picnic table. What I guess would be campsite 1 is further down the road and down below the road, I would not suggest using this site as it is a bit of a walk from the parking area, the road is two narrow to park here. Site 1 does not have a picnic table but does have a fire ring, odds are you won't even notice the site coming in or out. During my stay the campground did not have a fee, but the information sign indicates a fee may be coming next year. This is a dry campground, your only source of water is the lake so come prepared, this is also a trash-in trash-out site.

Secrete hidden Forest Service campground

Blackfoot Canyon campground is a little secrete Forest Service campground west of Lincoln Montana on the Blackfoot river. Secrete in that you will not find this campground on the Forest Service's web site, no signage along highway 200 to indicate that it is their. You can't find this on a map unless you look at an old map. Old maps list this as Blackfoot Canyon Campground but you will not find that name on the sign for the campground when you reach it, the campground sign says“Moose Creek Campground” but this is not Moose Creek Campground, that campground is an hour away from this location and on the other side of the continental divide. This campground has 8 sites with concrete Forest Service picnic tables, fire rings are made of rocks. Other pull outs are through out the campground area but with out tables or rings. A small vault toilet is available and was very well stocked with toilet paper and was clean. The campground does have one garbage can, it is located in the vault toilet, so be sure to close the door to keep the animals out. Campground is on the Blackfoot river, and if you like to fish there is a great fishing hole with nice large trout in it. I caught a 14½ inch Brown trout and spotted many more. You will need to bring your own water or a filter to get it from the river. The best thing is that this secrete campground is free. Campground was located 1/10 of a mile off of Highway 200, but the tree cover is so thick you can barely hear the traffi

Holland Lake Campground

Holland Lake is in a beautiful setting with mountains, creeks and lakes. Nice camping spots for most all size vehicles. No electricity, sewer or water hook ups, There is a dump site and standing toilets.

Beautifully tree'd picnic area + frisbee golf

I'm only giving this area 3 stars because I have never seen anyone camp here before, and I'm not sure you can camp here. It is one of my favorite places to have a picnic though. A quick drive from Missoula. Nice and quiet, despite the frisbee golf course. And if you're into frisbee golf then that is a major plus!
