Natural features you'll find at Willow Point in Montana.
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
The spot was so beautiful! Walter was very kind, helping us get parked at Willow Point and giving us a heads up about wild horses in the neighborhood. We also saw lots of wild turkeys!
Note that the hill down to the beautiful willow point is not accessible by vehicle, so to set up camp near the water you'll be carrying things down and back up.
However, it worked really well for us to keep the camp kitchen up above at the tailgate and just bring the tent down. It's a gorgeous place.
River front and great location
Great location, just outside of Missoula. The campsite itself is down a bit of a hill, which was not an issue for us at all.
Just wished we had more time to spend the day in the water.
A lot of thoughtful touches by the host and easy to communicate with.
The drive down to Walter's property was beautiful. Walter was very kind, flexible, and responsive as I approached my arrival time and was running late.
The river was great to soak your feet in and the scenery was fantastic. The campsite where I placed my tent was flat and clean. There are two chairs you can sit in too by the water. The spigot was a good water source and the site had everything I needed. My stay was wonderful and I loved the spot.
A couple of things to be mindful of:
1) You can't drive your car down to where you pitch your tent but it is not far away (60 feet downhill on a dirt path and another 60 feet after?)
2) You can hear the freeway more than the waterway but it is a constant white noise that isn't bad. I slept well but don't expect complete silence with just the sound of a babbling creek.
Highly recommended stay close to Missoula!
Willow point - beautiful river camp
Beautiful setting on Bitterroot River, private and clean. We arrived later than initially hoping for and Walter was quick to respond with additional and useful instructions. Portapotty was clean and path from parking area down to riverside camp spot was lit with solar to help us find our way with late arrival.
Walter's spot on the Bitterroot River is just beautiful. After a lot of car camping at National Forest campgrounds, this place felt really private and special. It is fairly close to town--a few planes landing at night, dogs barking in the distance--though it feels really magical. We'd stay again for sure.
What a great spot! We spent two nights at Willow Point and it was amazing. We had everything we needed - running water, a picnic table, a fire ring - and plenty of space to spread out. It's a little private slice of the river. So peaceful, and a quick jump to get into town.
