7 Last Minute Montana Camping Trips You Can Take This Weekend
Depending on what part of the Treasure State you call home (or like to camp in), this could end up being a beautiful weekend. And although many Montanans wait until later in the summer to dig out their tents and campers, there’s no harm in getting an early start. These seven spots happen to be fantastic places to enjoy nature and make perfect last minute getaways.
1. Swan Lake Trading Post & Campground, Swan Lake
With a beautiful park-like setting, a peaceful pond and a store with plenty of supplies (and huckleberry ice cream), it's really no wonder the Swan Lake Trading Post & Campground is a popular stop for summer travelers on their way to Glacier National Park. There are 8 shaded, grassy RV sites and plenty of grassy tent sites near the pond, so it's a perfect place to camp for those not quite ready to rough it.
2. Travellers Rest Cabins and RV Park, Darby
If you prefer cabin camping to sleeping under the stars, this little property will win your heart. It's a small, quiet oasis that's kept nice and clean, and a perfect blend of getting back to nature and enjoying the comforts of home.
3. Rustic Wagon RV Campground & Cabins, West Yellowstone
The summer crowds are starting to pass through West Yellowstone, but you can still enjoy a little peace and quiet here. This quirky campground has something for everyone, from furnished cabins to RV and tent sites. Rustic Wagon is a true gem.
4. Holland Lake Campground, Condon
The Holland Lake Campground is located deep in the Flathead, encompassing 24 acres. With 40 clean campsites, a day use area and a group site available for tent and RV camping, it's the perfect place for some lakeside relaxation this weekend (or any summer weekend).
5. Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park, Whitehall
When was the last time you took a trip down Montana's fascinating limestone cavern? The seasonal guided tours have already started, and the hiking trails, rental cabins, and campground are open all year long.
6. Butte KOA
Everyone in Butte knows that the local KOA campground is home to some of the best friend chicken in the state, which you'll find at the Chicken Shack. But it also happens to be a pretty great place to camp out for the weekend, whether you bring a tent or trailer or decide to rent a rustic cabin. But wherever you sleep, you won't want to miss out on the chicken. Trust us.
7. Conestoga Campground, White Sulphur Springs
The serene and relaxing Conestoga Campground is open for the season, and it's a great place to get away from it all while still enjoying a few basic amenities. This is a membership campground, but they're open to the public as well.
If you haven’t camped in Montana, well, you haven’t really camped at all. If you’re looking for a more rustic and secluded experience, check out this
