Welcome to Rabbit O'Brien Camp!
( see Rv site for more tent sites)
Nestled in the depths of the Kootenai National Forest in far northwestern Montanais where you will find a true Montana experience. When you think of Montana this is the area you dream about, Plain and simple! Rabbit O'Brien Camp is a world away from the beaten path in a valley well away from the nearest town. Still it"s only 15 minutes to the nearest store, coffee shop, and restaurants. Here you can find everything from solitary natural campsites, to parking for campers in an area with a communal patio that overlooks a small valley with commanding views of the Cabinet mountain range. Speaking of creeks, we have 2, and a small waterfall to enjoy that is right where the small creek [Rabbit] winds its way into the larger creek [O'Brien]. On the main lawn you can star watch and see the occasional meteor shower, sattelites, passing overhead, and a few times a year if you're really lucky you will be witness to the northern lights. Our camping is off the grid, and we can give you an education in off grid living based on our experiences. [its really not too hard to live an on the grid lifestyle off grid and enjoy the benefits and freedom of being OFF THE GRID]. Nice and GREEN! In the immediate vicinity you can hike the many trails, enjoy a drive up the mountain,and pick huckleberries when in season. For those ATV and bike enthusiasts opportunities abound!
Right from the property you can explore on your ATV the many miles of mountaintop viewsA little further away you can drive to Yaak falls, and farther north to the Canadian border area. Also Kootenai falls is nearby and was recently featured in the movie The Revenant. There are guides available locally for the amazing fishing opportunities in the rivers, and beautiful lake Koocanusa that streches 90 miles from Libby up into Canada. Dunno bout you but we ABSOLUTELY LOOVE fresh trout on the fire! We are a new camp and are still evolving so we ask for your patience and understanding. So come on over! Just getting here is an interesting adventure, and when you do arrive, just relax, and enjoy the peace and quiet of a Montana mountain getaway. You'll never forget it! P.S. Well behaved pets are very welcome and usually get lots of treats!

The vibe at Rabbit O'brien Tent Site
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
The Rabbit O'brien camp hosts are incredibly friendly and welcoming! They have worked hard to make their land special and inviting! There is a nice RV area, an RV on the property you can rent, and if you are tent camping, they like to tell you to pick a spot that feels right! They thoughtfully set out chairs in locations that are perfect for relaxing and enjoying the beautiful views. The patio they hand built is a great place to hang by the fire, watch the sunset over the Cabinet Mountains and star gaze. This is a great jumping off point for exploring all of the adventures the Kootenai National Forest and Cabinet Mountains can offer! Definitely check this place out!
Some of the nicest people you'll meet and a very special property. We pitched our tents down by their creek and had it all to ourselves. Sleeping next to the creek I had some of the best sleep of my life. The property has a lot of thoughtful details useful for a weary traveler, like a nice clean outhouse with shower, and a place outside to charge phones etc. David and Donna went out of their way to welcome us and we are still remembering our time there fondly!
David & Donna we’re such great hosts! I would highly recommend this campsite. It sits on their private property and feels very safe and home-like. There’s a nice creek that runs behind the campsite that you can set your tent up next to. There were all of the amenities, shower, toilet, fire pit, bbq, etc. Beautiful spot to camp! Thank you David & Donna for being so wonderful!
David and Donna are the kindest humans ever!!! They gave us a tour of the property when we arrived. There’s a bathhouse with restroom and shower. There’s a nice fire pit with plugs they set up if you need to charge a phone or whatever. Also they have a very nice grill they allow you to use. We picked the spot down by the creek which is sooooo peaceful and nice. We were the only ones staying during our time so we were spoiled with having the entire space to ourselves. The first night we got in it was raining and they so kindly offered to let us stay in their camper to avoid getting drenched! True angels! They use solar, wind and hybrid battery power for everything around the property. We felt so safe the entire time we were there so whether you are a single male or female or a couple you will feel right at home and welcomed. You can just stay on the grounds and enjoy solitude but there is PLENTY to see and do around the city of Troy if you feel like driving! In town you MUST go to Main Street Perk they recommended it to us and I can’t push it more for coffee and breakfast sammies and burritos. David and Donna are so warm and welcoming and truly amazing people!
