Free Dispersed camping in the Custer Gallatin National Forest’s Hebgen Lake Ranger District. Reservations are not accepted at this campsite. This is a high elevation location.

This was a nice area to camp in, and had several campsites along the road, with very few campers. We stayed 1 night, and saw there were 4 campsites that I saw (at night) with one vehicle per site. There were two tent campers, one car camper, and a larger RV. We parked next to the RV, which had a fire ring and a nice creek next to it which helped put us to sleep.

This was a very secluded area, so it was quiet and didn’t have a cell signal (T-Mobile or Sprint). The road going in is gravel, and is somewhat bumpy, but not overly long. Just be careful if you vehicle might get stuck.
