Overall Rating

This place is a little bit harrowing to get to—you've got to travel down a 7-ish mile dirt road to get to this spot (including a few dips, cliffs, and rutted-out road), but you'll be greatly rewarded when you do. I would not bring anything larger than a 28 ft travel trailer to this spot. A lot of the spots are a bit tight.

Make sure to stay to the right on the first split of the road (don't ask me how I know this). Go all the way until you get to the bridge and there you have a choice of about 3 camp sites. We parked at the last one (where the latitude/longitude shows on this map). Get there early in the day to make sure you snag a spot. We arrived on a Sunday night and ours was the only vacant spot.

There is zero useable data, even with a booster, but you can get a little talk on Verizon with a weBoost. Only about 30 minutes from downtown Missoula, so you can't beat the location/price if you're willing to sacrifice cell signal. We just went into town during the day to work and then came back in the evenings to enjoy nature.
