No fees announced for some western Montana campgrounds

Wait! Don’t leave the western Montana area to head south just yet. You can still get in some late season camping at some Montana campgrounds with a perk that will be music to RVers’ ears – NO FEES!

The Seeley Lake Ranger District has announced that no fees will be charged at several campgrounds beginning on September 4th, reports KPAX.

Fees will no longer be charged at the Seeley Lake, River Point, Lake Alva, Lake Inez, and Rainy Lake campgrounds remaining open after the Labor Day weekend.

There is a new area closure that will be in place for the Big Larch Campground Complex starting September 5th. The closure is due to the tree removal contract work currently occurring in the area. Access to the Big Larch boat ramp will remain available until reconstruction work begins on the boat ramp.

The boat ramp at the Seeley Lake campground will remain open during the Big Larch boat ramp closure to accommodate boating use.

Lake Alva Campground is expected to remain open while thinning of small diameter subalpine fir is resumed in mid-September along the main access road and around the outer circle of the campsites. This work is aimed at continued treatment of dead and dying subalpine fir trees. It’s expected that the campground, day use area, and boat ramp will remain open during contract work.

More information can be found by contacting the Seeley Lake Ranger District at (406) 677-2233.

I wonder what’s behind this freebie. We drove by several of these campgrounds earlier this year and they looked pretty well filled up. Room for big motorhomes too.
