Three Popular Campgrounds in Montana Open Advanced Campsite Reservations

Outdoor enthusiasts can now plan their summer getaways early as the Seeley Lake Ranger District of Lolo National Forest (Montana) reveals advanced reservations for three popular campgrounds.

Big Larch and Lake Alva campgrounds are accepting reservations from May 24 through September 3. Meanwhile, Seeley Lake Campground will start taking bookings on July 1.

For both planners and spontaneous travelers, the reservation system will become accessible via www.recreation.gov on April 24 at 8:00 a.m. It will offer a mix of reservable and first-come, first-served sites.

“A lot of visitors expect an online reservation system to plan ahead and ensure they have a spot before they get here,” Quinn Carver said in an interview with NBC Montana. Carver is the district ranger for Seeley Lake Ranger District, Lolo National Forest. 

Big Larch Campground, known for its scenic beauty and recreational opportunities, will offer reservable sites in Loop 2, Loop 3, and Bicycle Sites while maintaining Loop 1 and Loop 4 for first-come, first-served campers. 

Furthermore, Lake Alva Campground is a favorite for its serene lake views and hiking trails. The campground will have Loop 1 available for reservations, leaving Loop 2 for walk-in campers.

Meanwhile, Seeley Lake Campground will have all its sites available for reservation once it reopens. This campground, nestled near the picturesque Seeley Lake, is a haven for water sports enthusiasts and nature lovers.

The Forest Service’s commitment to modernizing recreation reservation services is part of a broader effort to enhance public service and ensure high-quality recreational experiences. 

For payment options, visitors can pay for first-come/first-served campsites using a credit card by scanning a QR code with the Recreation.gov mobile app. 

The Seeley Lake Ranger District’s initiative to offer advanced reservations reflects a commitment to providing accessible, convenient, and enjoyable outdoor experiences for all visitors. 

For more information on the campgrounds and the reservation process, visitors can access the Lolo National Forest website at https://www.fs.usda.gov/lolo or follow their updates on Facebook and Twitter.
