“Beautiful Camp on the Missouri Headwaters”

Reviewed Sep 15, 2016

Overall Rating

I camped here in my fifth wheel, enjoying a three day stay as I moved North in Montana. Great place to relax on the Canon Ferry Lake. This lake was created when the Missouri was dammed up here as a reservoir for water, electricity and to control flooding. Almost all of the campsites are right on the water. A few have trees, but in general not much shade is provided and it can get warm here during the Summer. If you have a boat, you could keep it in the water right next to most sites. Fishing is supposed to be good here, as well as water sports. It can get a little noisy due to the speed boats, but not bad.

The weekends fill up here as it's only 25 miles from Helena. Nearest small store and gas station is Townsend, Mt, about 20 miles. You can make reservations well in advance, but walk-ins prevail in numbers. They have several nice group areas you can reserve too.
