“Spectacular dry camping on gravel sites next to blue ribbon trout fishing on the Madison River”

Reviewed Feb 12, 2015

Overall Rating

Located near the Varney Bridge, one of the few river crossings between Ennis and Yellowstone Park, 50+ miles. C/G is far enough off the highway (#287) to be quiet and relaxed. Fishing is excellent right outside your door. Hungarian Partridge plentiful for the upland bird hunter. Driving farther up the roads into the Gravely Mtns you will see signs about "Fair Chase" lion" (mountain lion) hunting.

Sites are well separated, gravel and a bit dusty when vehicles come thru sight seeing. Otherwise, it is very remote. One morning we awoke to noises: Barking, whistles, yips and shouts sounded out of place. A look outside brought into view a cattle drive with horses, herding dogs and P/U trucks driving several hundred cows next to the c/g headed to the bridge. The cattle were going to their winter range. Yee Haw little doggies!
