Montana is well known for two big National Parks, Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park. But all across the state there are smaller state parks that offer excellent outdoor activities. This includes Lost Creek Falls, a great place for camping, fishing, picnicking, bicycling and wildlife viewing in Montana.
At this Montana State Park, you’ll find stunning limestone cliffs with pink and white granite rock formations shooting 1,200 feet above the narrow canyon floor. In the northwest corner of the park, a waterfall cascades over a 50-foot drop to provide one of the most scenic and popular spots in the park.
Here you’ll find great wildlife viewing, particularly for mountain goats and bighorn sheep which can often be seen on the cliffs.
The Lost Creek Falls park has 25 sites in the park that offer vault toilets, grills/fire rings, picnic tables, drinking water and interpretive displays. RV/trailer size is limited to 23′ and maximum length of stay is 7 days during a 30 day period. Pets must be on a leash. The park itself is 502 acres in size and is 6,211 feet in elevation.
You’ll find Montana hotels, Golf courses and museums located nearby in Anaconda. This park has been designated ‘primitive’ so there are no fees and facilities and services are limited. Remember to pack in-pack out your trash!
