  Montana offers more uncrowded hiking and camping opportunities than most of us can enjoy in a lifetime. From the plains and badlands of eastern Montana to the majestic mountains and National Parks in the west, Montana offers amazing hiking and camping opportunities for everyone. This site provides first-hand information about camping in Montana, great Montana hikes, Montana travel tips and general information about camping, hiking and enjoying Montana.

     Montana is a huge state and there is no way I will ever be able to discuss every (or even very many) camping, hiking and traveling opportunities in the state. However, I will continue to add hikes and other specific information through the years. I have been hiking, camping and enjoying the outdoors in Montana since the mid 1970's and have visited a lot of places and I hope to share information about some of them.

     Besides providing "where to" information about camping, hiking and traveling in Montana, this site provides basic information about how to camp in Montana. If you are new to camping you will find info about a lot of basic camping information. If you are an experienced camper you mightfind suggestions that help you to better enjoy your camping experiences so be sure to check out our section on Camping in Montana.
   
If you want to learn more about hiking and camping in Montana I recommend you buy a copy of the excellent book Hiking Montana by Bill Schneider. This is the classic hiking guide for Montana and in 2004 the 25th anniversary edition was released.  I can't begin to tell you what a great tool this book is. It provides an excellent overview of hiking and camping in all parts of Montana. The hikes described are very representative of what you can find in an area and I consider this book to be a "must have" for anyone interested in camping and hiking in Montana . For information about purchasing this great book visit Hiking Montana: 25th Anniversary Edition.

     Montana is an amazing place and I hope you will have many opportunities to get out and enjoy all that thestate has to offer. from the first time family car camper to the veteran backpacker, Montana offers experiences of a lifetime. All you have to do is get out and enjoy them. I hope that this site helps you to do just that!
