Discover Helena, MT

The capital city of Montana, Helena was founded in 1864 and is one of the most populous cities in the state. Founded as a trading, fur trapping, and gold rush outpost, Helena was once considered the wealthiest city in the world at the height of the American Gold Rush in the late 1880s and early 1890s. Many of the ornate and stylized buildings erected during this period still stand proud and tall throughout the city, making central Helena a beautiful place to walk around. Nowadays, Helena is world renowned for its natural beauty and various outdoor recreational activities. Along the Continental Divide about 90 miles southwest of Great Falls and 100 miles northwest of Bozeman, this mountainous region is the ideal place for outdoor adventurers, making Helena the perfect place to rent an RV.

If you don’t feel like driving your Helena RV rental by owner around the city, you can hop on the Capital Transit public transportation system. With two, far-reaching routes, you’ll have no problem getting to most of the points of interest in and around Helena.

After you book an RV in Helena, all of western Montana opens up to you. You can explore the magnificent peaks, the untouched wilderness, or just take in some of Helena’s city culture as you explore the wonderful world of Montana.

The Great Outdoors

If you don’t want to stray too far from the city, Mount Helena Park is conveniently located within Helena’s city limits. Visitors can hike up one of the six trails to the summit, depending on what you want to see along the way. The 1906 Trail will get you up and down again in as little as two hours or you can opt for a longer trail that’ll take you through scenic grassy woodlands and give you a variety of outlooks, such as the Prospector Shafts Trail.

If you want to get a little farther out of town, take your Helena RV rental about an hour’s drive to the northeast to Helena National Forest. This is a perfect destination for those who enjoy long hikes as roughly 80 miles of the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail is within the park’s boundaries. You can also spend some time on one of the lakeshores and soak up some sun. There are nearly one million acres of mountains, waterfalls, lakes, and forests to explore in this picturesque example of Montana wilderness.

Roughly two hours northeast of Helena, and named after the some of the most famed explorers in American history, Lewis and Clark National Forest is a wonderful place to spend the day or even set up camp. At just under two million acres, this mountainous terrain is home to peaks from eight different mountain ranges, such as the stretching Rocky Mountains and the more local Elkhorn Mountains. This vast array gives avid hikers challenges while the less hiking-inclined can rent a boat and explore the lakes or rivers that snake through the mountains.

Maybe you just can’t hike anymore, but you still want to explore the natural wonder of Montana. You can reserve a seat on one of the many boat tours that will take you through the intimidating, yet awe-inspiring Gates of the Mountains. This impressive geologic formation looks as though it’s been cut in two by the Missouri River and seeing it from the river offers some of the best scenic views of western Montana.

RV Parks

After long days of hiking and mountain climbing, you’re going to need a place to park your RV rental near Helena. Luckily, since it is known as an avid outdoor recreation destination, there are plenty of RV sites and campgrounds in and around Helena that offer wonderful accommodations.

Just north of the Helena city center, Helena Campground & RV Park is a spot to consider setting up camp. Here, you’ll find full hookups, showers, laundry facilities, and even some nearby lakes. The park is also pet-friendly.

Also located just north of the Helena is Lincoln Road RV Park. Here, you can choose from full hookups or just electrical sites as well as enjoy access to laundry facilities, bathroom and shower blocks, an on-site library and convenience store. You can also bring your furry friends.

Explore the City

After you’ve explored the natural beauty of Montana, it may be time to turn your Helena camper rental back to the city and explore some of the manmade beauty of this vast state. There is so much to see and do in this state capital that if the stunning wilderness of the region doesn’t entice you to come to visit again, then the city just might do the trick.

You can learn more about the history of Helena and Montana by visiting the Montana State Capitol. This stunning building opened in 1902 and is outfitted with local sandstone and granite and is topped with a stunning copper dome that has turned green with age. You can take a guided tour through this historic building and view the various art pieces that chronicle Montana’s history.

If you want to learn more about Montana’s history, spend the day at Reeder’s Alley. A preserved and recreated section of original Helena, you can learn about the early days of Helena’s gold rushing prospectors and other early settlers. You can walk among historic buildings or enjoy a meal at the on-site restaurant.

Branch out a bit and head 35 miles southeast with the Helena motorhome rental to the picturesque railroad town of Townsend. Walk the charming downtown streets or take a tour of the Broadwater County Museum to gain some insight into the Gold Rush history of this tiny town. Just north of Townsend, on the southern point of Canyon Ferry Reservoir, you can immerse yourself in river activities like kayaking, canoeing, and other water recreation.

After an exhausting day of mountain climbing or a long day of walking downtown streets, the best treat to reward yourself with is a heaping scoop of huckleberry ice cream.
