...or in the adjoining field anyway! We are 20 miles east of Missoula, MT near the Kettlehouse Ampitheater in Bonner. Our location is halfway between Yellowstone and Glacier National Park. There are mountain bike paths, river access points for paddling, rafting or fishing within minutes of our land. We can even help you know where to go. Our land is surrounded by Nature Conservancy land with a public recreation easement, so you can hike and take your horse for a ride very easily.

In a vehicle, you can pull into one of our pastures for your stay. Where you are depends on which field the sheep are eating! Tents also work in the field. We do not have any hookups. The fields are that - pasture fields. There are quiet neighbors across the fence. We are happy to offer advice about local attractions via messaging due to covid (rather than in person).

This is pack it in, pack it out

During the pandemic we ask that you wear a face covering if you have a reason to talk with us, even across the fence out of an abundance of caution since most of you are traveling from out of state. Tours are also temporarily suspended.

Convenient location but no privacy

Very convenient location off i90 but not very nice or private. The field is surrounded by houses and shared with a mobile home making it extremely lacking in privacy. Instructions were ok but not sure I’d recommend this one. Would plan to stay at one of the number of state parks in the area if I did this trip again

A great place to stay for a night or two! The directions for which pasture to sleep in were a bit confusing but the host was responsive when we needed help. Highway and train noise was fairly loud but manageable. Overall we loved our stay with the sheep!

The accomodations were basic and exactly what we were looking for. Lisa was casual and inviting when I contacted about our arrival plans. It is a great place to set up for a few days if visiting the area, or just off the highway if needing an overnight. Our children enjoyed the animals and highway noise was minimal.

Great little spot! East, quick camping right off 1-90. IF you are camping in a structure with screen (tent, pop up, etc…) it is noisy. Trains, highway, roosters in the morning in the field. Just a heads up! Otherwise super easy to access and fun to watch the sheep herd!

It was nice to wake up with the sheep talking to each other. It was quiet, despite being off of the frontage road.

Site had a nice creek in back and the animals were fun to watch. The host was freindly and helpful. However, the was animal poop everywhete and the freeway noise was loud.

The animals are very friendly and plentiful. Turkeys greeted us, chickens flocked and geese gandered.
We slept well - I only heard the train twice; once as I was falling asleep and once during an early morning bathroom trip.
This location is very handy to I-90.

We had a great time at Sleep with the Sheep! The campsite is close to Missoula and has a lot of fun animals. We woke up and hangout with the turkeys which followed us around. You can hear the main freeway from the spot but it isn't too loud. I would recommend this place :)
