Campground changes in Bannack since 2011

 The accommodations are still beautiful but not modern. There are places for motor homes, trailers, and tents but the hookups consist of one hydrant in the camp with potable water and there is an outhouse. The outhouse is probably as clean as I have ever seen, they do a good job of taking care of them. Grasshopper Creek flows right through camp for a refreshing bath?


NOTE OF CHANGES FOR CAMPGROUND USERS FOR THIS YEAR IN BANNACK:      The Montana State Park System will be going with a campground reservation system this year. Sites will be reservable in the Vigilante Campground (the one the Lodge normals stays in) from Memorial Day to Labor Day. This may make it inconvenient for some, however it will make it convenient for those who come long distances and want to make sure a site is going to be available for them. The total number of sites that will be reservable will be 12. If the sites do not get reserved on a particular night the sites will be first come first serve. This reservation system will not affect the Road Agent Campground since it will be all first come first serve. If you are interested in reserving a site, you can contact Reserve America, at or call them at 1-888-922-6743. They will start taking reservations starting March 16th. The camping fees have gone up for non Montana residents. Camping fees are now $23 per night. However, if you purchase a state park passport, the camping fee is reduced to $18 per night.
