Okay Campground, Great Hiking!

To me, the best part about camping is just being outside and also hiking! If the campground is mediocre but the hiking is fantastic, then its a win-win for me. This campground was "okay," nothing really special about it. It was clean, but a bit small. Thankfully we went during the late week, so it wasn't too busy. We honestly stayed here because it had the nights we wanted available and it was close to a few hikes we wanted to do. The campground, like I said above, is smaller but it was clean and well kept. We got in a bit late, and our campsite was tagged for us so we knew which one was ours. We got up that morning and did a great hike (can't remember name?) that was about 10 miles roundtrip. Some of the best views! Beautiful wildflowers throughout the hike, which I always love. The campsite is pretty basic, with a fire ring and table in your campsite. The table that was in our campsite was a bit beat up, we were a little afraid to all sit on it because we thought it might break! No water spigot, so definitely bring enough water and filtration system if you plan to do some hiking. We stayed here 2 nights, and did 3 different awesome hikes! Probably wouldn't stay here again, but definitely would come back to this area.

Hot Springs and Primitive!

This campground is centered between a bunch of private land, but we are lucky enough to have found it. We heard about a hot spring called “Pony Potosi” in Madison County and that is exactly what it is. The campsite we chose required driving over a small creek, but no worries to those of you who don’t drive a Jeep or a truck- we saw people drive over in small cars with campers too! You have to hike about a half mile to access the hot spring but it is definitely worth it. On the way to the campsite is sort of scary in some spots but very beautiful. A narrow dirt road will lead you to one of the most beautiful sites in Montana! Here, you have the reassurance of other people around, but it is still very quiet. There’s also a lot of boy-scout traffic but they keep fairly quiet. There are sites on either side of the creek but we preferred to drive over. Great trees to hammock from, my friend actually slept in her hammock all night with no issue. Just the stars, a babbling brook and the moon all night! Highly reccomend.
