Camping in Southeast Montana

East of the divide and bordering Wyoming, southeastern Montana offers a variety of locales. Though often overlooked for the mountainous west, there are actually more options for camping in a wider variety of locales in this corner of the state than in any other part of Montana.

The most options favor tent campers, who are welcomed to both private campgrounds and federally managed sites. While some of the higher-end campgrounds with the most amenities generally require a reservation and a fee – even for tent campers – there are plenty of beautiful spaces to spend a night beneath the stars, even if you’re planning a last minute trip, especially near Custer National Forest.

With much less mountainous terrain and therefore easier to maintain roads, it’s much easier to bring an RV to eastern Montana in the winter than on the other side of the continental divide. If you’d like to take a winter road trip, you’ll be pleased to find out that this also means that there are plenty of facilities available to host you with full hook-ups that are open even in the snow. While reservations are practically necessary in the summer because of demand, you’ll have a much better chance of finding a place to park your RV on the fly in the winter.

And if you have neither a tent nor an RV, there are tons of beautiful places to rent a rustic cabin. To make them easier to find, Visit Southeast Montana has compiled a list of rentable cabins in the area that you can choose from.
