It's easy to get lost exploring in Montana -- the big sky, and untamed, wild and natural land that comprises the state of Montana is breathtaking and all-consuming. With two national parks, Yellowstone and Glacier, and 51 state parks, you'll never be far from somewhere to pitch your tent; and outdoor recreation is abundant.

Montana is an angler's dream, a river rafting mecca, and a hunting paradise. There are plenty of bird species for watching, rocks for climbing and hot springs for soaking.

Popular camping areas along the famed Big Hole River are jumping off points for anglers, and camping on the western slope of the Continental Divide is a great destination for travelers heading to Glacier National Park, Whitefish Mountain Resort and Flathead Lake. But just about anywhere your camping road trip takes you in Montana is another perfect portal for summer camping activities.
