Overview

Overview

Aspen Grove Group Campground sits in forested mountain terrain on the banks of the Blackfoot River in the Helena National Forest.

At an elevation of 4,800 feet beneath a canopy of cottonwood, aspen, juniper, Lodgepole pine and Douglas fir, this campground is an ideal setting for larger families or groups seeking relaxation and recreation.

Natural Features:

Visitors to Helena National Forest are treated spectacular scenery as well as an abundance of natural and cultural resources in the area.

Rugged ridges, alpine meadows, forests, grasslands and rivers provide wildlife diverse ecosystems. Grizzly bear, lynx, wolverine, deer, elk, gray wolf, moose, black bear, mountain lion, mountain goat and mountain sheep all call the area home.

Recreation:

Aspen Grove Group Campground offers outdoor enthusiasts the opportunity to hike, fish, bike and enjoy a long list of outdoor recreational activities throughout the year.

Indian Meadows Trailhead, located approximately 9 miles from Aspen Grove, offers access to a number of hiking trails in the Scapegoat Wilderness. Alice Creek Trailhead, located approximately 15 miles from Aspen Grove, also offers hiking opportunities into the Scapegoat Wilderness and along the Lewis and Clark historic trail to Lewis and Clark Pass.

The Blackfoot River, adjacent to the campground, is renowned for its recreational opportunities, most notably fly fishing. Blackfoot is a fast, cold river with many deep spots, making it prime habitat for populations of cutthroat, rainbow and brook trout.

Nestled in the upper Blackfoot River drainage, Lincoln is a popular destination for big game hunting and snowmobiling.

Facilities:

Aspen Grove Group Campground has six sites, able to accommodate 40 people and a maximum of 15 vehicles, including trailers up to a maximum of 20 feet. Space is available for 10-15 four-person tents.

The site is equipped with picnic tables, campfire rings, drinking water and vault toilets.

Access to Blackfoot River is within walking distance from the campground.

Nearby Attractions:

Located in Northwestern Montana on both sides of the Continental Divide, the Scapegoat Wilderness-Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex is more than 1.5 million acres, the third largest in the lower 48 states.

The Lewis and Clark Expedition of 1804-1806 spent many months traveling through the varied scenery of Montana. Many areas of the landscape along the expedition's route on the Helena National Forest look much the same as in 1805-1806.
