Nestled on the shores of the Cooney Reservoir, the Cooney Campground lies just 40 minutes’ drive south of Billings in south-central Montana. It’s just a stone’s throw from the border with Wyoming and the iconic Yellowstone National Park. The Cooney Reservoir is renowned for its boating, walleye, and rainbow trout fishing during the summer months, as well as ice fishing and cross-country skiing during the winter months.
Camping at the Cooney Campground offers access to RV sites, tent camping, yurts, and cabins, some of which are ADA accessible. Pets are welcome to stay with you but must be kept on a leash. Campfires are permitted in designated areas. There are toilets, drinking water, and picnic tables available, as well as a children’s playground. A fish cleaning station is provided for anglers, as is a boat ramp for getting out on the water.
Roberts campers are on the doorstep of the Cooney State Park, which hugs the shores of the Cooney Reservoir. The Cooney Reservoir was created in the 1930s with the impounding of Red Lodge Creek and now encompasses more than 1,000 acres for boating, fishing, and water pursuits. Take advantage of one of the three boat ramps to go walleye and rainbow trout fishing or explore the scenic hiking and biking trails that wind through the surrounds. It’s also possible to swim in the Cooney Reservoir if you’re visiting during the summer months.
The Cooney Campground is also just a short drive from the Custer Gallatin National Forest, which sprawls across nearly two million acres along the northern edge of Yellowstone National Park. It includes parts of Absaroka-Beartooth and Lee Metcalf Wilderness areas, as well as numerous mountain ranges and the highest point in Montana - Granite Peak. More than 2,000 miles of hiking trails traverse the forest and link with those in Yellowstone National Park while tributaries of the Yellowstone River carve through the landscape. Keep your eyes peeled for grizzly bears, bighorn sheep, deer, and moose, as well as bald eagles and peregrine falcons.
If you’re after a challenging hike, attempt the summit of Big Pryor Mountain, which forms part of a large mountain range in the Crow Indian Reservation and Custer National Forest. It rises to 8,786 feet at the northern end of Wyoming’s Big Horn Basin and features an impressive ice cave near the summit that can be explored with the help of a head torch. The mountain range is also home to the Pryor Mountains Wild Horse Range, a protected area inhabited by a herd of free-roaming feral horses that’s a “must” for equine lovers.
The campsites at the Cooney Campground are just a 15-minute drive from Roberts, where you can find a supermarket for stocking up on supplies. There’s also a gas station here if you need to fill up your RV rental and a handful of eateries that include a cafe, a saloon, and a bar. While visiting Roberts, stop in at the Kevin Red Star Studios, which is home to an artist who grew up on the Crow reservation in southern Montana. Here you can browse the works on display in various stages of creation.
Camp in an RV near Roberts and you’re just 30 minutes’ drive from Red Lodge, a resort city in Montana’s magnificent Beartooth Mountains. It’s a popular hub for a range of outdoor pursuits, including white water rafting, mountaineering, and skiing. If you’re after a cultural fix, visit the Buses of Yellowstone Preservation Trust, which preserves a range of vehicles and artifacts used by the national parks before World War II. Alternatively, head to the Beartooth Gallery of Fine Art on the main street of Roberts, where the works by local artists are displayed. Aside from painters, the gallery also showcases sculptors, glass blowers, potters, and furniture makers.
Also in Roberts is the Carbon County Historical Society & Museum, which details the people and events that have shaped the region. It was originally established in 1959 by Alice Greenough to house a collection of objects belonging to her renowned rodeo family and later moved to the early 20th century Labor Temple that’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Browse the rodeo, weaponry, and mining exhibits on display, then shop for Old West-related historical books and gifts in the small store.
