Description

Free camping from the Wildlife Management. Road in is great. Came in our 30ft Class C with no issues. It's in a bird habitat area. we parked in the picnic area on grass. Highway is 1/4 mile away but little noise from the cars. perfect spot. 4 out of 5 bars of LTE from Verizon.

SUPER windy in the evening, but it gave way to a lovely sunset. We ended up camping in the spots near the pit toilet and the bushes to hope for some wind shelter. We had the area to ourselves.
We were only passing through, but it would certainly be a sight to come through during the migration.

Loved it here but the bugs are terrible - so if you don't have a screened rig or enclosure you may be very uncomfortable.

There are actually multiple places to camp. The actual campground is in another location at 47.6699590, -112.0168446. It is a little closer to the highway but is surrounded by trees so it is more private. It is also closer to the boat launch. The kayaking in Davis Lake was great! You can also camp at one of the many parking lots around the lakes. Each has a pit toilet. Our favorite spot was at 47.6833977, -112.0452452. It is nestled between 3 of the lakes/ponds but the bugs seemed to be worse there.

Freezout Lake is a great area for birding and wildlife watching. Watch out for the snakes. We almost stepped on a couple.

We use Google Fi for our internet. Freezout Lake is the best data/phone reception we have had in Montana so far.

2 camping areas with multiple sites available: one on gravel, one on grass. All sites have picnic table. Pit toilets. Trash container at entrance. Several trails between ponds. Supposedly great birding mid March and October (migrating snow geese). Quiet. Can get windy.

BTW the location is a bit inaccurate, the coordinates are 47.66537, -112.0171. You need to take a gravel road next to some Wildlife Management buildings, and drive for around 500 yards, the lot will be on the right

Lovely, very quiet spot! Almost no mosquitoes. The birdwatching season is in thw spring and fall - in the summer we had the place for ourselves. There is quite big gravel lot, pit toilets and a few picnic tables. Definitely recommended!
