Lolo National Forest Campgrounds Open for the Season

Summer recreation season is here, and seasonal campgrounds across Lolo National Forest (Montana) are beginning to open for the season. 

As per a report, although most campgrounds are expected to open this Memorial Day weekend, some will be opening later in June, depending on elevation and accessibility due to snowpack.

Last summer, the Lolo National Forest offered River Point Campground on the Seeley Lake Ranger District for online reservations and other campgrounds in different Districts.

Online reservations can be made through http://www.recreation.gov. The Forest will provide additional online reservations to select campgrounds on the Superior, Seeley Lake, and Missoula Ranger Districts this year.

These new additions to the reservation system offer the public expanded trip planning options and are part of our continued commitment to providing high-quality recreation experiences on the Lolo National Forest,” said Kate Jerman, Lolo National Forest Public Affairs Officer.

Most campsites on the Lolo National Forest are still available on a first-come, first-served basis and will continue to utilize volunteer camp hosts throughout the summer to serve as caretakers of the facilities and provide visitor information.

Online reservations continue to be required for all Lolo National Forest lookout and cabin rentals.

Savenac Historic Tree Nursery recreation rentals and Double Arrow Lookout will be closed for all or part of the season due to maintenance funded by the Great American Outdoors Act.

The Lolo National Forest is buzzing with exhilaration as the campgrounds gear up for the summer season! It’s marvelous news that more campgrounds will offer online reservations this year, making it so much easier to secure a spot in this beautiful forest. If you’re planning a trip, I highly recommend checking out the Superior, Seeley Lake, and Missoula Ranger Districts. It’s the perfect time to plan an unforgettable camping adventure!
