The Nodust family (me, Mrs Dust, and two boys 14/11) are planning a two week trip to Montana in July. Plans are to fly into Salt Lake, Spokane, Missoula, whatever is cheapest. Right now Spokane is the cheapest tickets. Planning to see Glacier and Yellowstone parks. Also spend a few days in Anaconda where we lived after first getting married. We are taking our hammocks and backpacks and would like to stay at campgrounds and do some backpacking, nothing to extreme. I would like to camp in Yellowstone and Glacier but due to work can't nail down dates until April so we will be at the mercy of walk up permits for back country. I really don't know how that system works so any advice would be great.
So if any Montana hangers have some good campgrounds or other things to do chime in. I haven't been back to Montana since 2000 and looking forward to seeing everything again. We may try to work in climbing Mount Haggin on the outskirts of Anaconda. I can't believe I never did this when living there. I know of a few campgrounds around that area that would be fine for us.
Also thinking of a rafting trip, if anyone knows a good outfitter for a day or half day trip.
Thanks in Advance
