In the last entry we looked at Montana FAS (Fishing Access Sites). They provide access to streams, rivers and lakes throughout Montana. Many sites offer camping for free or a minimal fee.
During our recent trek through Montana, we needed a place to camp in the vicinity of St. Regis and not too far off our I-90 route. A quick search on the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks FAS website brought up Big Pine FAS which offers free camping for RVs up to 23 feet.
With free being my favorite price for a night of camping, we and our friends headed for Big Pine FAS which is just four miles off I-90. As with most places in western Montana, we were traveling in and out of smoke from the numerous forest fires in the state. As we approached the turnoff (exit 66) we broke out of the smoky haze into sunshine.
I grew excited in anticipation being free of the smoke and enjoying the balance of the day camping along a stream under sunny blue skies. Exiting the freeway, still in the sun, we traveled down fish creek road as instructed.
