    Fishtail, Montana

    Welcome to Itch-Kep-Pe Park, a charming spot near Columbus, MT, perfect for a laid-back camping experience. This place is open from April 1 to October 31, and it's a great spot to unwind by the Yellowstone River. The park offers a mix of tent and RV accommodations, making it a versatile choice for different camping styles.

    One of the standout features here is the easy access from I-90, which makes it a convenient stop for travelers. The campsites are nicely spaced out, each equipped with a picnic table and a fire ring. You can enjoy a peaceful walk along the river trail, especially if you have dogs—they'll love it too. Fishing is a popular activity, so bring your gear if you're into that.

    While the park is free, it's donation-based, so consider leaving a contribution to help maintain the area. There are vault toilets available, but don't expect luxury—some visitors have noted they're not the best. The park can get a bit noisy due to the nearby highway, train tracks, and occasional generators, but the beautiful river views and large trees make up for it.

    If you're into nature, you'll appreciate the scenic walks and the chance to spot wildlife like bald eagles. Just be prepared for bugs, especially mosquitoes and ticks. Despite some minor drawbacks, many campers find Itch-Kep-Pe Park a pleasant and convenient place to stay, especially for a quick overnight stop. Enjoy your stay and don't forget to take a stroll down to the river for some stunning views!
