Discover Missouri Headwaters State Park, MT

The Missouri Headwaters State Park is situated in west-central Montana, just north of I-90 and the small town of Three Forks. The nearest larger town is Bozeman, at about 30 miles to the southeast. The state's capital, Helena, is the nearest true city, at almost 100 miles to the north.

The park is located in a fairly rural part of this very large state. It sits in a flatter, lower-lying, plains region, surrounded by mountains, where the Gallatin, Missouri, and Madison Rivers all meet. This is the origin of the Three Forks' name. As the name of the park would suggest, this is where the mighty Missouri River, which eventually becomes a major tributary to the Mississippi River, is officially recognized to begin. Outdoor activities are easily available here, including hiking, camping, winter and water sports.


Renting an RV at Missouri Headwaters State Park will allow you to enjoy many different recreational activities. Water sports are options on any of the nearby rivers. Fishing is primarily enjoyed here, though there is also swimming access in the warmer months. These waterways also make for a fine way to explore the nearby region by paddling a kayak or canoe.

There are plenty of trails available throughout the park, as well. They are offered in a variety of lengths and difficulty levels. These are primarily enjoyed by hikers and mountain bikers, though they can be converted for winter use for activities such as snowshoeing as well. These are also good places to spot local wildlife.

Another activity that people engage in at Missouri Headwaters State Park includes birdwatching. There are also plenty of scenic places to rest awhile and enjoy a picnic lunch. These locations make for fine photography opportunities as well. Historical information on the Lewis and Clark Expedition is also available throughout the park grounds.

Camping at Missouri Headwaters State Park

Exploring the Area

When you book an RV in Gallatin County, you will find activities that everyone in the family can enjoy nearby. The Headwaters Heritage Museum is located in Three Forks.

This locale even features a unique exhibit highlighting the different types of barbed wire! State park RV camping will make it easy to explore any unique sites you may find nearby.

The Montana Grizzly Encounter is found in Bozeman. This is a rescue and sanctuary for bears who are unable to remain safely in the wild any longer, some due to injury, others to behavior (such as being known as "problem bears" in places like Yellowstone National Park). Visitors are able to observe the bears safely, up-close, in their natural environment. Educational information about the species is offered as well.

Lewis and Clark Caverns are located in Whitehall, around 25 miles to the west. Cave tours are offered here, as are hiking trails on the surface. There are even slides in the caverns that provide a fun way to navigate their unique structures.
