Out of the way hiding spot

 Great little hidden gem. Just a handful of spspots to camp but absolutely beautiful!!

Kreis Pond

Great secret camping spot. There’s only about 5 spots and summer will be crowded when it’s hot and awesome weather! Bring tubes to float around the water and hammock to hang around. Neat, fun area especially with the Sleeping Woman hike so close. Once you drive up the mountain, the trailhead is off to the left and it’s a heavy incline to the top so be prepared with lots of water and an awesome view at the end. 360 view of the Missoula Valley, Bitteroot Mountain Range, Flathead in the distance and Mission Mountains as well.

Ok stopover

Nice little lake, was there in fall so not busy. Wooded and sites are along the lake, but views aren’t fantastic. Saw bear prints, definitely lock up foods. Bring water treatment methods.

Good for the Ease of Drive, but not the Best

The pond is small and prone to very dense algae blooms. Campsites are very close in and very busy by Montana standards. Good for a quick jaunt out for one night if you don't mind making new friends but it isn't a good place for an extended stay. Speaking as a former member of these hooligans, it's a common spot for high school students to be hooligans.
