Two group camping areas are available for reservation at Big Larch Campground. Individual sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The group campsites can accommodate up to 25 people and about four tents each. Sites are equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills. Accessible vault toilets and drinking water are provided. The campground also offers a day-use picnic area that provides access to a swimming beach, boat ramp and boat trailer parking. The area is equipped with tables and campfire rings, as well as accessible vault toilets, trash collection and recycling bins. Drinking water is also provided.
The campground is a short distance from the Clearwater River Canoe Trail, which offers a prime location to witness the area's spectacular birding and wildlife viewing opportunities in a scenic setting. The water trail is popular with canoeists and kayakers as it stretches 3.5 miles, or a couple of hours, down the river.
The campground is nestled in a mixed conifer forest, including plenty of tall larch and pine trees. While there is ample space between sites, the lack of understory makes for minimal privacy. At an elevation of about 4,000 feet, temperatures are pleasant throughout most of the summer months.
The campground is in a great spot for boating and fishing. Anglers cast for a variety of freshwater fish, including Kokanee salmon, bass, whitefish, pike, trout and perch, among other species. Both motorized and non-motorized boats are permitted on the lake. Water skiing is a popular activity. The Big Larch Nature Trail, a half-mile interpretive trail, begins in the campground and offers an educational look at the surrounding wilderness.
From the junction of Montana Highways 200 and 83 (locally referred to as Clearwater Junction), travel north on Highway 83 for approximately 15 miles to the town of Seeley Lake. Continue north on Highway 83 for 1 mile. The campground entrance is located on the west side of the highway.

What type of RV should I choose?
Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.
You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.
Do the RVs have bathrooms?
Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.
