This once lovely campground that was aptly named Big Larch, had been logged until almost unrecognizable. The campsites that are somewhat close but used to feel private because of the dense foliage are now out on display. You can easily see/hear all your neighbors. Not to mention the mess left from the recent logging. Sad to see such a beautiful campground reduced to this.
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.
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.
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.
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!
