On the eastern side of Montana and on the western shore of its namesake Hell Creek Bay is Hell Creek State Park. At 337 acres, it's certainly one of Montana’s smaller state parks, but its seclusion from big cities and its access to the water offers a relaxing look at nature for any traveler. Hell Creek State Park is hilly with unique rock formations. Sitting right on Hell Creek Bay coast, it's well-known for all sorts of water activities.
Several small towns, such as Jordan and Cohagen, are only a short drive away. Hell Creek State Park isn't only isolated from city noise, but also from other state and national parks. Ul Bend National Wildlife Refuge is about a five-hour drive west. Further west is Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument. When you book an RV in Garfield County, you'll enjoy the freedom to explore nearby natural areas without sacrificing the comforts of home.
Unlike most other state and national parks, Hell Creek State Park doesn’t have much in the way of hiking trails. Those who visit Hell Creek visit for a handful of reasons, and almost all of them have to do with access to the water.
Activities in Hell Creek Bay and the adjoining Missouri River vary depending on the time of year. In warmer months, campers enjoy the opportunity to boat, water ski, swim, and fish. This area has become well-known for its walleye fishing, and plenty of people camping at Hell Creek State Park take advantage of it.
In winter when the creek is frozen, visitors have the opportunity to ice fish and even go ice skating. Just be sure to come prepared! Whether you're ice fishing or fishing in the warmer months, Hell Creek State Park has a private marina on the grounds to provide you with necessities for fishing, as well as food, supplies, and gas.
Whether on the water or on land, visitors can take the opportunity to photograph the natural terrain and the many species that call Hell Creek State Park home. The beautiful rock formations surrounding Fort Peck Lake make a picturesque backdrop and the perfect photo opportunity. If you're lucky, you just might snap a photo of an elusive elk or mountain lion.

With Hell Creek State Park so geographically secluded, exploring the area could mean a bit of travel. Just shy of four hours south is Zoo Montana. Located in Billings, Zoo Montana offers a number of exhibits, tours, and even has an outdoor concert area. The zoo houses all sorts of critters, from insects like the black widow and large carnivores like grey wolves and grizzly bears to the exotic Siberian tiger and green aracari. There's plenty for the whole family to see and experience at Zoo Montana.
About 20 minutes northeast of the zoo is Yellowstone County Museum.

The Yellowstone County Museum often hosts events, so you might find something extra special on a visit here.
If you find yourself heading north to Canada, Grasslands National Park is directly over the border and is most accessible by taking Route 191 into Canada. If your travels take you south towards Wyoming, consider visiting Pryor Mountain to visit the wild mustangs that have freely roamed the area of centuries. West of Pryor Mountain is Yellowstone National Park. If you're heading in this direction anyway, it may be well worth your while to see some of Yellowstone’s world-famous geysers, the most famous of which is Old Faithful.
If you need to get groceries or need a place to refuel, the private marina at Hell Creek State Park offers both. There are no large cities nearby, but there are several small towns within a short distance.
