If you were going from Montana to the Beartooth Pass or on to Yellowstone Park you
may want to stop along the way if you were taking your time so I decided to look for
places you might stop over night between Laurel, MT at the start of Hwy 212 going to
the pass or the park and Silver Gate at the entrance to the park and what I found is
a lot of places to stop for the night or longer, here is what I came up with. First is
Laurel MT Walmart
Water Birch FWP access site by Roberts MT is a good site.
3 FWP sites just north of Red Lodge MT, they are not that good.
4 USFS campgrounds just outside of Red Lodge MT they are:
Sheridan with 9 sites, Rattin with 7 sites, Basin with 30 sites & Cascade with
30 sites they are in the Custer National Forest.
At the junction of Hwy 212 and Lake Fork Rd. is a dispersed site with about 6 spots.
About 5 mile South of Red Lodge you find 3 more USFS campgrounds they are
Parkside with 26 sites, Limber Pine with 13 sites & Greenough Lake with 18 sites.
You have to go up over the pass to get to more spots there are 3 side roads on the
south side of the pass with possible spots to park.
Next there are 2 USFS campgrounds in the Shoshone National Forest they are:
Island Lake with 21 sites & Beartooth Lake with 21 sites.
There are 3 side roads after the campground with possible dispersed sites and
2 roads #136 & the Lily Lake Rd #130 that have sites.
Crazy Creek Campground with 16 sites is next it is past where the Chief Joseph
Hwy comes in.
There is a large dispersed site down the road from here on the left just past where
Pilot Creek meets the Clark's Fork river.
Next you come to the USFS Fox Creek campground with 33 sites.
Next you go back into Montana and the Custer National Forest and you have
2 USFS campgrounds they are:
Coulter with 18 sites and Soda Butte with 27 sites.
After these campgrounds you will come to Silver Gate this list dose not include
private campgrounds or RV parks along the way.
