Overview

Overview

Moose Creek Flat Campground is located in scenic Gallatin Canyon on the Bozeman Ranger District of the Gallatin National Forest, in Montana. It is 32 miles south of Bozeman.

The surrounding area offers many outdoor recreational opportunities, including fishing, rafting, hiking and viewing local wildlife.

Natural Features:

The campground sits next to the Gallatin River near Moose Creek, just off Highway 191, at an elevation of 5,700 feet. A forest of pine and fir trees covers the surrounding mountainsides, but the campground itself lies in an open meadow.

A variety of wildlife makes its home in this scenic canyon. Visitors can often catch a glimpse of bald eagles, bighorn sheep, moose, elk, mountain goats, deer and coyotes. Black and grizzly bears also live in the canyon.

Recreation:

The surrounding area provides great opportunities for hiking, fishing, scenic driving and wildlife viewing. Anglers cast for rainbow, brown, brook and cutthroat trout, whitefish and Arctic grayling on the Gallatin River. An accessible fishing dock is located at the river's edge. Rafting and kayaking are popular activities as well.

Many trails can be found in Gallatin Canyon. The Swan Creek Trail begins at nearby Swan Creek Campground. Golden Trout Lakes Trail begins about 15 minutes away up Portal Creek Road, three miles south of the campground.

Facilities:

This fully accessible campground offers several single-family campsites, each equipped with a picnic table and campfire ring. A group day-use picnic area is also available and can accommodate up to 50 people.

Vault toilets, drinking water and trash collection are provided. Roads within the campground are paved, but the parking spurs are gravel.
