The name says it all—camp here to discover rolling mountains and wide open skies.
With a name like Big Sky, it's easy to imagine pitching a tent under the Milky Way in the Montana Rockies. This ski resort town puts you at the foot of looming peaks and Gallatin Canyon. The best part—it's just a stone's throw from Yellowstone. It may be a vacation hot spot, but Yellowstone National Park has no shortage of camping options. Choose from over 2,000 campsites across 12 campgrounds, or bask in the isolation of a remote backpacking site. For secluded camping in the wilds of Montana, venture into Gallatin National Forest. The whopping 3.1 million acres of rugged mountains and buttes are home to endless wildlife. Keep an eye out for moose, mountain goats, and bighorn sheep. Want easy access to Big Sky? Discover the seasonal campgrounds of Gallatin Canyon. The towering rock walls invite you to enjoy world-class rafting, fishing, and hiking. Just over 6 miles from Big Sky Montana on the Gallatin River, you find Red Cliff Campground. Another popular spot is Swan Creek Campground, where you can sleep under fir and spruce trees at 5,800 feet. While Big Sky campgrounds lend themselves more to tents, you can still find RV camping. Just keep in mind the closest dump stations are in West Yellowstone and Bozeman. For no-stress camping, you can always hunker down in an RV park with Wi-Fi, private picnic tables, and fire rings. Want to enjoy Big Sky skiing in the winter? Get cozy in a heated cabin.
