There’s a reason that Missoula is a regular on “best places to live” lists. It offers the best of all worlds — the arts, craft breweries, rich history, and of course, outdoor adventure. Surrounded by mountains, forests, and rivers, Missoula is close to some of Montana’s best campsites.

Close to downtown Missoula, several private RV parks offer year-round camping. Comfort is king at these parks; enjoy Wi-Fi, full hookups, and cozy cabin rentals.

Prefer the wilderness? Head into the Lolo National Forest, where 28 Forest Service campgrounds offer RV and tent camping. At Lolo Creek Campground, spend the day birdwatching and finish with a dip in the nearby Hot Springs. Bring your fishing gear to Bitterroot Flat Campground, which features a Blue Ribbon trout stream.

If you’re heading to Glacier National Park on Highway 93, be sure to stop at Flathead Lake. Waterfront sites at Flathead Lake State Park are perfect for kid-friendly swimming, boating, and hiking.

Tucked away in northwestern Montana, Missoula is a four-season destination. Summer days are warm and sunny, and autumn brings stunning fall foliage. In the winter, locals love cross-country skiing and high-speed snowmobiling. Warm layers are a must year-round, especially if you’re heading for high-elevation campsites.
