The sites are mostly large and level and many are quite private. Very scenic setting with well-groomed trails to the rivers/river confluence. My only complaint is the nonresident price of $23, which I feel is high for a no-hookup state park. Five dollars was the entry fee which can be used again in another Montana SP if you happen to be going to one. Good Verizon signal. We camped at Missouri Headwaters State Park in a Motorhome.

We both really loved this spot. There is really only one site that can handle a large rig. We are 38 ft and were in site 15. We had plenty of space and it was a very beautiful private location. All of the sites are lovely but some are very small. The park is very well maintained by the fantastic hosts who have spent many hours improving it. No one told us about generator hours so we ran ours during the day hoping it wouldn’t bother anyone. There are nice walking trails and a paved biking trail that we took into Three Forks for lunch one day. There is so much history in this area I would never tire of returning. I would go back in a heartbeat! We camped at Missouri Headwaters State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

As a non-resident of the state, I would have paid $20, but I happened to mention that I had been at Lewis & Clark Caverns that day so they said to take off the $5 parking fee from there and write a little note on the green envelope. Good deal! The campground is small, but pretty. The pull throughs are more like pull offs and vary in size. But each has a bit of lawn, kept clipped by little brown rabbits, and a picnic table. Pretty close to I90, but quiet just the same. We camped at Missouri Headwaters State Park in a Motorhome.

Park Ranger and camp hosts were friendly and helpful. Being able to walk to the nearby rivers to go fishing...was a nice "plus". We were able to run our generator with ease...although we were "disturbed", one night...about when we were going to turn off our generator even though we were well within the campground's rules for running/using our generator. I probably wouldn't camp here, again...simply because of tight squeeze we had with our 38 ft. fifth wheel and/or our 36 ft. motorhome. We camped at Missouri Headwaters State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A gem of a campground if you aren't afraid to dry camp for a few days. Fresh Montana water is available along with the beauty of our home state. We're older and residents, so the fee is dirt cheap. We camped here decades ago in our Westfalia, but now the CG is much more developed and a real beauty. We camped at Missouri Headwaters State Park in a Motorhome.

We rate this park as a 4 in terms of facilities. It seemed like a lot of money to pay $23 for no facilities whatsoever. Camping at this park means boondocking. However, we rate this park as an 8 for its trails and scenery. Hence, our overall rating of '6', we averaged those two numbers. There were some really nice walking trails, the bathrooms were clean, the rivers were pretty. But there were no hook-ups and the pull-through sites were basically part of the road. In most cases there wasn't even a little patch of grass or anything separating the pull-through sites from the road. We lucked out by getting spot number 17 down at the end of the road and ended up staying for a few nights. If we had been in one of the other spots we probably would have only stayed for one. We would stay here again if necessary, but not one of our favorites. We camped at Missouri Headwaters State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice campground. Very friendly campground host. We stayed here in July and it tended to be windy. Also the mosquitoes are a problem. Lewis and Clark camped here 205 years ago and complained about the mosquitoes too. We camped at Missouri Headwaters State Park in a Truck Camper.

Lovely, (no hook-ups) otherwise a 9! Our 38' 3-slide Moho backed in fine, 2-3 other pull-through sites would have worked as well. Need to release your dinghy first as we got stuck on the end loop (just unhooked, no big deal). Vault restroom was spotless. There's moose and bald eagles, no skeeters (could have been with all the marshes). Located only 4mi NE of Three-Forks, MT. $15, 1/2$ GA. There is cell phone service, so we also had internet. At least drive in to the interpretive site and great picnic! We camped at Missouri Headwaters State Park in a Motorhome.

This park is located at the confluence of the Jefferson, Madison and Gallatin Rivers which form the headwaters of the Missouri River. It is rich in history as Lewis and Clark camped very near here in 1805 with the Corps of Discovery. It is a beautiful, relatively undeveloped park that features outdoor interpretive signs explaining the geological history as well as that of the Native Americans and white settlers who came through this area. There are many scenic hiking trails and a nice day use area. Some of the campsites lie right along the Madison River. My indication of the number of campsites is an estimate - there are not very many. It is open May 1 - September 30 and is not suitable for big rigs. We camped at Missouri Headwaters State Park in a Motorhome.
