Beautiful spot just off Hwy 15 about 30 miles South of Helena.

Boulder River runs the backside along the highway. We have a 30’ Airstream and it had no problems finding a spot. Would definitely stay again. And it’s FREE!!! 2 outhouses that are very clean, fire pits at each site.

This is a Pack in Pack out camp ground.

Close to the highway. Easy access to Helena. Of course it's first come first serve, but when we were there was only one other party there. Of course they had some issues, and police were involved, which didn't give me warm fuzzies about leaving the RV alone there. But otherwise the campsite was great. Clean (Pit) bathrooms, right ... more

Even in mid november, with snow on the ground, there were atleast 3 RVs here. There was snow of the ground but it was mostly packed down due to frequent traffic. Campsite had 2 bathrooms that were clean. Even those site was close to highway, it was not noisy. We saw a lot of hunters driving up the road past the site, but we did not hea... more

“Beautiful little spot”

Reviewed Aug 24, 2017

This is a great spot. My kind of camping. And it's free. Even has restrooms. There is some noise from the trucks on the highway about 150 yards away. A booster helps with the cell coverage.

We snuck in here about midday on the Friday of Memorial Day weekend and snagged the last 'legit' spot. The 'rules' clearly state to park only on the prepared gravel spots, but it's small print that the next two folks didn't read. There are two small loops. The sites in the eastern loop are closer together but most of them back to th... more

“Great section of BLM land to stop over for a night”

Reviewed Jul 22, 2015

Overall Rating

Galena Gulch is right off I-15 outside Helena. It's quiet, even with the highway just on the other side of Boulder River, and the majority of sites back up to the river. Mosquitoes were non-existent, and the river provided a nice ambiance for the night. It appears to be a favorite spot with locals. There was a dual rear-axle RV, two la... more
