Stay on an Old Trout Farm and listen to the water flow through the property. The property has been in my family since 1890 and we are the original founders of the McLeod Ditch which allows for a canal and creek to run water through and fill the trout ponds. I do have renters living on the property so two of the ponds are currently private property but you are welcome to take a jog or walk up the road to the canal and forest area. This spot is great for fishing and I can take you on a hike through a canyon to a waterfall. We are only 15 minutes south of Flathead Lake.

We stayed two nights and would have stayed longer if we weren't moving on! We did not use the shower but the toilet was clean, and potable water was readily available. We also had somewhat reliable phone reception (both AT&T and GoogleFi). The property faces west so you can watch the sun set, and see all the lights come on in the valley. The pond is picturesque, too. If you're lucky, you'll meet a very curious cat!

Mere is a wonderful Host. Me and my wife stayed at mere’s magic rainbow trout farm with our camper van. When we arrived Mere welcomed us with yummy cookies. We were doing a 12 days road trip, we stayed in many places but this was the place we felt so welcomed and the farm is really Beautiful and just behind the farm you can see a Gorgeous mountain and there is a small pond where you can paddle a boat and there is a cooking area as well.. Mere briefed us so well about the property and she did a small tour for us. We highly recommend this place.

Truly magical! Also very comfortable, beautiful, and well organized from the instructions to the simple (but much appreciated) amenities.

It's hard to describe this place simply with words. As described, Meres place is magic. A gorgeous pond sits center to a well groomed hunk of land with all sorts of nooks and cranny's to park, pitch a tent, and enjoy the incredible big skies of Montana. There is a super sweet cat named "Covi" who helped show us around the property. during dinner at camp, we ate while deer grazed the fallen apples just yards away from us. Mere was more than accommodating, and is an "above and beyond" type of host. We lucked out and had the whole place to ourselves, but could imagine this would be a wonderful spot for a group campout. there is a great community kitchen area, streams of water surrounding the property, beautiful horses across the field on the neighbors land, and overall, a lush landscape that is fit for a postcard.
the sunset over the mountains of Montana was breathtaking, and the Stargazing at night is some of the best on the planet.
groceries and camp supplies are within easy proximity, considering how peaceful and secluded the space feels.
This space is so beautiful, it makes it hard to leave. if you stay here, stay a day longer if you can!

Beautiful spot! We could pick where to pitch our tent on a wide lawn around the pond, gorgeous views of the mountain.s Portapotty was serviceable, and we didn’t see a tap for drinking/bathing water but might’ve just missed that—we had brought water in anyways that was plenty for one night. Meredith was super responsive and had some great recommendations for things to see and do in the area!

We spent two night here and it was wonderful.
All the running water and lush vegetation made this spot an oasis.
It was nice and quiet at night and outdoor shower was nice to have.

There are lots of small creeks with bridges and this spot was great for soaking my feet after a long day in the heat!Right next to where we put our tent, it was magical! Had great views of the mountains and sunrises.

Mere is a wonderful host. Staying here felt like family. It was calm and relaxing, I always felt safe, and I was lucky enough to meet other campers who made the experience even better. Plus, her tea shop is adorable!

We’ve used HipCamp before and this experience at Meredith’s place was not what we were hoping for. The “sites” weren’t designated and we felt like she was fitting us into a spot that didn’t really have room for us. Right next to the only level place for a tent were two large anthills and there were ants everywhere. We chose not to stay.

The canal was beautiful! The farmland was pretty.
