Not too far a drive into Yellowstone, but if you can do without the geysers, I much prefer to hike/camp in the Gallatin National Forest where pretty much anything goes.

    Forget the name of waterfalls, but ask some of the locals where the big ones by the dam are. Thats a great place to hike and get soaked too.

    You can also float the madison near Three Forks for some of the best fly fishing in the world.

    Montana is an awesome state that really feels like your in a different world. Its getting alot of rich retired folk moving in and becoming more yuppy, but not near as bad as places like Colorado.
    I believe you are thinking about the Hialite creek and lake area where Bozeman gets it's water supply, I fished that creek hard with my tenkara. Great fun catching little brookies, browns and rainbows!! Spectacular fishing and camping area. I didn't see the waterfalls but I know they have em there.

    Oh, and p.s. If you can't get permits for GNP in the backcountry, go check out "The Bob" aka the Bob Marshall Wilderness. No one goes there. It's close to GNP and has lots of bears and other wildlife. If you go there, I imagine a bear can is required. You'll have to go to the USFS website to get details.

    Fronkey, just make sure you have about 25ft of cord to hang your food bag. While bears are definitely present, I was more worried about critters like marmots, chipmunks, squirrels and birds.

    I'm sure you've already looked at this link but this has all the info you'll need for your visit if you want to go into the backcountry.
    I've been looking it over. Just hard to decide what would be a good trail and campsite for us.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I'm looking up all the campsites and trails listed so far.

    Is early July too early for Glacier? The crowds should be slim but trails will be slim also due to snow.

    It looks like most campsites have a spot for two tents, like on a pad. Did you have to hang inside a certain area or just found some trees close that worked?

    I am reading the Glacier backcountry guide. In the campground information section they state
    in the table to
    the right, lists the total number of sites (first
    number), the number of sites that may be
    reserved in advance (second number), and the
    first date that the campground is available by
    reservation.
    For example: sperry Campground is 4 - 2 - 8/1.
    the campground has four sites, two of which
    may be reserved in advance, but not for dates
    prior to august 1.
    Is one site for one person or how many people can one site hold.

    Never mind I found it.

    4 people per site, two tents per site.
