Great views

This is a great campsite. You are along a fast moving creek and the campsites are well spaced out with trees, vegetation or roads between each site. The sites themselves are well sized. Roads are narrow and curved- would not be good for a trailer unless you really knew what you were doing. Each camp site has a fire ring with grate for cooking, picnic table and plenary of room for a tent or two. We enjoyed a chilly overnight and woke to the geese nearby flying overhead. Excellent fishing opportunities as well- just bring waiters!

Great horseback, hiking & bicycle trails

This is one of my favorite local riding spots. The trails are well used and vary from flat and easy to moderately difficult. Lots of bicyclers on the trails. There are some camping spots.

Very lovely city camping

We enjoyed one night of winter camping here while passing through. There weren’t any amenities during winter, but it was quiet and private if you are a self contained vehicle. The steakhouse around the corner was also delicious and convenient. Nice stream next to camo sights.

From sways away

It’s a cool looking place from a distance then when you get close it’s not so cool

Montana FAS by Yellowstone River

This is a free Montana Fishing Access Site next to the Yellowstone River north of Big Timber. There was one clean single vault toilet for about 5 sites. No water or garbage available but each site has a picnic table and fire ring. There is a boat launch for fishing. It snowed when we were there in very late September 2019. We were the only ones there the two days we waited out the snow. This is a campground where there are few public campgrounds.

I added another star as this is a quiet campground in an area with few public ones available. And, it was free.

One of few campgrounds in this area

We stayed here one night while traveling on Highway 12. This is a city park in Roundup, a small town along with a string of smaller towns along Highway 12. It is called Cow Bells

The cost is by donation that you place in a pay station near the entrance. There are flush toilets, a little dated but clean and functioning. There is a dumpster for your trash near the restrooms. I believe this is the campground for the Musselshell Rodeo.

The sites are spread out with picnic tables. You are sheltered by huge cottonwoods. While it was windy while we stayed, none of the branches fell. We were there mid September when the cottonwoods turn gold.

This was a godsend to us as we tried Deadman’s Basin but there were signs warning of rattlesnakes. Also, there was little shade there. There are few other public places to camp and in this part of Montana there is little public land.

Convenient to highway

Close to interstate and one of MT busiest truck stops. Bathrooms and laundry rooms were dirty. Sign on office door indicated that the office would open at 9am, but by 11:30 am it had still not opened. RV sites were level and clean.

A delightful refuge.

A very nice small town town campground east of Montana’s front range. Several level pull-through RV sites with electricity. Dumpster and water hydrant near by in the campground. Large new community playground adjacent to the RV sites. Sparsely used in October/November. 14 day limit. We look forward to staying here again.

Beautiful

I love this place so much. This was my first time camping in Montana. It was breathtaking for me. The lake was so peaceful and clear. The trail around the lake is a nice walk to see all the different views around it. The meadows were full of wildflowers in the summer. The campground is a small loop and spaced out, the lake trail also had a couple of backcountry spots to set up. There’s also a few more trails in the area that were very pretty!!

Great spot

Found this last minute. Wide open space and also spots right next to the Yellowstone River. You can park anywhere where. We parked in the open field with lots of privacy. Has vault toilet. There are some siyrs with stone made camp rings.
