Camp Creek Recreation Area

Friday, March 31, 2017

Alt Names

Little Rockies, Camp Creek Campground, Horse Corral Campground, Buffington Day Use Area, Little Rocky Mountain, Beaver Mountain, Old Scraggy Peak, Shell Butte, Green Mountain, Zortman

Last Known StatusOpen

This remote recreation area offers two campgrounds and a day use area that provide direct access to miles of designated ATV trails that wind through the Little Rocky Mountains. The trails are mostly hardpacked but some sections follow a shallow creek that is surrounded by various aspen and pine trees.

There is no fee for using the day use area or for riding the trails but a small fee is charged for camping. The area is very quiet and secluded but the campground offers some basic amenities that include picnic tables, fire rings, restrooms and three drinking fountains.

Basic supplies, lodging and RV hookups can be found at the nearby town of Zortman.
