Big Sky Camp Paw

June 27-30, 2019

An Unforgettable, Unspoiled, Montana Furry Experience

This year we are at the Larry Creek Group Campground south of Missoula! This is a large campground with picnic tables, a shelter, volleyball court, large campfire circle, and a creek! Best of all we have no neighbors, we are thrilled to be moving here and hope you all are too!

So come howl with the wolves at night, watch for elk, moose, coyotes, and grizzlies, swim, hike, fly fish, and frolic with furries in The Last Best Place.

What to Bring

Any supplies you would need for normal camping, that is tent, food, sleeping bag, sleeping pad. In June the average low is 40 and the average high is 72. Saturday night dinner is provided as part of your registration, there will be a section on the registration form to indicate if you have any dietary restrictions. Other important items of note:

  1. Four-legged furry friends are welcome as long as they are well-behaved around all people and other pets.
  2. Bring bear spray if you have it. This is prime grizzly bear country and food storage is required, all attractants must be in a vehicle or bear storage box before you go to bed.
  3. Bring a chair, not having a chair to sit in sucks. :P
  4. Don't transport firewood, this is bad juju.
  5. This is an 18+ event, 21 to drink.

What to Do

Montana contains some of the most remote and rugged country in the United States.

  • Hiking- a paved nature trail circles the area, and the adjacent Lee Metcalf National Wildlife Refuge has miles of hiking trails. The Stevensville Ranger District has a PDF of trails around the campground.
  • Mountain Biking and Four Wheeling- numerous trails abound in the area, contact the Stevensville Ranger District for more information and current regulations.
  • Simply Hanging Out- sit back, relax, and unwind while enjoying the beautiful open country surrounding you.
