We departed northern Idaho and made our way east into Montana and then south on I-15 heading to Dillon. Along the way we stopped at our usual spots such as the rest areas in Anaconda and Alberton. Of course, we saw some wildlife along the way with the pronghorns and coyotes.
The Clark Canyon Reservoir recreation area is managed by the Bureau of Reclamation and is located about 20 miles south of Dillon, Montana. It includes not only a reservoir for rainbow and brown trout fishing but boat launches, picnic areas, and 9 campgrounds. The entrance fee, launch fee, and camping fee is $0. We have stayed here a number of times before and never tire of the beauty, the ease of accessibility, and the price!!
Campground: Clark Canyon Reservoir – Beaverhead Campground

Site: 6 (a back-in but we just drove in and it became a pull thru)

Comments: Our favorite “go-to” campground in the Dillon area.
We only stayed one night as we were just passing through but it was enough time to sit outside, have a drink, watch the sunset, and make dinner on the BBQ. A beautiful place.
