Snuggled beside a hay shed, beside (summertime) running water and edged with cottonwoods and hay bales for privacy, three miles from the village of Harrison, MT, this campsite provides spectacular views of the Tobacco Root Mountains smack in the middle of a working cattle ranch. Harrison Lake Reservoir is close by for fishing and boating adventures, the Tobacco Roots are filled with hiking trails, and Yellowstone National Park is only 90 miles away through gorgeous country. Lewis and Clark Caverns, Headwaters State Park, Canyon Ferry, and Bozeman are all within easy driving distance. This is a working cattle ranch, raising heritage Red Devon cattle and commercial blacks and reds. Many days during summer the cattle herd grazes in the same field in which the campsite sits. Bald Eagles nest nearby, coyotes sing overnight, and trout abound in South Willow Creek (which runs through the property). The Town Haul Diner in Harrison serves breakfast and lunch, and Three Forks, Ennis, Willow Creek, and La Hood all have restaurants within an easy 30 minute drive. Hikes on foot are permitted in fields on the ranch which do not contain livestock (our cattle vigorously protect their calves against roaming coyotes, the occasional wolf, and visiting dogs, so ALL visiting dogs be leashed at all times on the ranch when they are within any field containing cattle (or confined to vehicles). Harrison Lake Public Access, 5 miles east, and the Tobacco Root Mountains (3 miles west) provide plenty of space for dog exercise. Bicycles are welcome on the gravel roads of the ranch, and there are good public trails into the mountains behind the village of Pony, 3 miles from the ranch.

Beautiful stay, beautiful hosts!
Our stay was perfect! The location is very private, and the ranch itself is wonderful to walk through. Kiril is an amazing host, ensuring that all of our needs were met and that we were happy & comfortable.
We will definitely stay again in the future :-)
The most amazing montana night sky!
Absolutely loved this camp site. We were totally alone under the AMAZING Montana night sky with a warm fire and the sound of rushing water. Site is located in the middle of a cattle ranch in a hay storage area. Best privacy we've had at a campsite. No one else around to see or hear. Site was pretty level but with a leveling block we were square on. Nice little fire pit and I was able to forage some kindling and found some logs nearby. There's a picnic table with a water container and hand sanitizer and soap. Bathroom is a little rustic, a composting toilet with a view of the field, but worked great for me. Can't say enough nice things about this secluded little spot.
