Lewis and Clark Caverns

Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park is a popular destination for visitors.

Camping reservations at some Montana State Parks can be made as little as one day before arrival this summer.

The campgrounds include Beavertail Hill, Black Sandy, Lewis & Clark Caverns, Placid Lake, Salmon Lake, Tongue River Reservoir, and Whitefish Lake state parks. In past seasons all campsite reservations had to be made at least two days before campers arrived.

“The change will let our visitors be more spontaneous when planning their camping trips, while still providing peace of mind that there will be a campsite waiting for them when they arrive,” said Pat Doyle, marketing and communications manager.

The summer reservation season runs from the third Friday in May through the third Sunday in September. Campsites may be booked up to six months in advance. In recent years reservations were available up to nine months in advance, but reducing the booking window will allow Montana State Parks more time to add new sites and make other updates to the reservation system between seasons.
