Camp in a grassy valley next to a bubbling creek and steep forested mountains, but very close to Wallace city limits. Once part of the Sunset Branch railroad that serviced local mines, this camping meadow is skinny and long. The train used to stop here back in the early 1900s but there’s little left to show it except the memories of a bygone day.

You’ll have a steep forest on one side and creek on the other. On the other side of the creek is a road that’s not busy and trees line the creek blocking the view of the road for privacy, but you’ll still hear cars going by. Picnic table, stone firepit, and a couple wooden camp chairs provided. Very private spot! Keep an eye out for wildlife including elk and deer. You can also take a little dip in a wading pool in the creek on hot days.

This campsite is at the end of our property; no one should be driving this gravel road except for rarely a utility company vehicle (and occasionally trespassers on ATVs that might not realize it's private land).

Very long RVs/trailers may have difficulty turning onto the bridge to the site. At the site there is enough space to circle around so RVs shouldn't have to back up, etc.

Located close to Wallace with all of the town’s fun shops, bars, restaurants, and tourist activities easily accessible. It’s an easy bike ride (or long-ish walk) to town and especially the City Limits brewpub. Or bring your UTVs and head the other way for hundreds of miles of gorgeous trails to ride. Or bring a kayak or tubes to float the river, about a half hour away.

No services provided, including no bathrooms, but you can pay to use the shower house at the RV park just down the road.

Located near highway 90 and very easy to reach for those looking for a place to crash on a road trip.

** PLEASE NOTE: This site may not be accessible during winter months; check with us first for snow conditions between November and May.**

Great little spot , private enough and the cars going by occasionally did not bother us . All the already cut wood was wonderful for our fire pit . Picnic table and seating very convenient. We would stay again

Nice secluded campsite. Lots of firewood and a rushing creek, but close to town.

Cute meadow with a nice fireplace with chairs and picnic table. It rained all weekend so we didn't get to enjoy those amenities tho. We lived the sounds of the water rushing by in the crick.

Easy to find. Lovely quiet and private space close to town of Wallace. The running stream was lovely. The meadow campsites are not in view of one another. Barbara had set out chairs and picnic table next to a welcoming fire pit with plenty of wood. Looking out of our van at trees and grass was so much nicer than the local RV park just down the road. We would stop here again.

It was clean and private. Nice chairs,table, fire pit. Close to town. Easy to find. Not especially interesting but Wallace was and that’s were we spent our time. Also close to great biking spots.

The camp spot was great for our overnight trip. The instructions made it easy to find and the spot is so close to town. It is also far away enough that you won’t hear the highway at night. We will stay here again during our next stop in Wallace!

Nice quiet spot. We have a 24’ trailer (27’ overall,) a little tight to turnaround. Pull in/back out or visa versa recommended.
