The staff was helpful and friendly. The tent campsite was right next to the nature preserve and it was wonderful waking to all the birds.

There’s also a yurt on-site which was offered to us at no additional charge. Portable bathroom was clean.

Firstly, the property has AMAZING views! My dog and I enjoyed a wonderful evening in my truck camper here. Devon was an incredibly kind and helpful host, and even made sure I had a freshly mowed spot once I chose a place to set up camp. The property is as private or social as you’d like it to be... you can choose to camp close to a fire pit with a yurt and other campers nearby, or you can choose to camp in the meadow for a quiet secluded spot with lots of privacy. I watched white-tailed deer in the meadow during the day and listened to all kinds of wildlife at night. I never felt unsafe, and Devon is close by if ever you need something. Oh! And the night sky here is BRILLIANT. I saw the full Milky Way, and the viewing of stars is spectacular.

Highly recommend! You won’t be disappointed.

Beautiful view of Lee Metcalf Wildlife Refuge, and the Bitterroot Mountains! Super clean port-o-potty, nice fire pit/hangout area, and plenty of spots to camp close-in or out in the field for a little more privacy. Dogs are very happy here. Bring mosquito spray! :) Would highly recommend!

BEST CAMPING IN MONTANA one of the Best experiences I’ve had! The host Devon, was awesome and super accommodating. He let me stay in the Yurt one night and it was beyond perfect. I ended up staying almost a week I loved it so much. This place is so special & the views are epic. Devon and Des make you feel at home & very safe on the property! You will def wanna stay longer!

A good value for the money. Devon is friendly and helpful. We enjoyed hanging with other campers around the campfire. The site is 100 yards from a pretty busy and noisy road—bring earplugs.

Devon was an amazing host and his property gave my fiancé and I a one of a kind experience. We were planning on sleeping in the truck, however because it wasn’t being used, Devon offered us the yurt which was even more comfortable than most hotels we’ve been in! He took the time to stop by each of the camp sites to introduce himself and made sure that we had everything we needed. All in all this was an amazing experience and I would highly recommend this location to anyone who is passing thorough the Missoula area.

Gorgeous views and great camp setup with fire pit and spread out spot even though it was empty when we stayed. Was convenient stop off from I90. Downside was its close to a road that didn’t quiet down until fairly late and some folks drove through camp and stopped for a bit noisily chatting in the middle of the night. All in all a great spot to camp if you bring some bug spray and earplugs.

The previous reviews are very helpful to know what you’re getting into. It’s a piece of land that doesn’t look lived on by the owners (I could be wrong) on the side of a road. It goes pretty far back so you literally drive wherever you want, park, and sleep. If you don’t have a suv or truck I wouldn’t go back far as it’s super bumpy. The views and sunset are great. We would stay here again.
