We went on a two week vacation in August  to the U.S.A. with our camper. We drove 5,000 k.m. in our truck. We left Calgary, Alberta, Canada on a sunny and hot day.  Temperatures during our vacation were between 25-30 ° Celsius plus humidity. We didn’t book ahead, but had no problem finding places to stay, we stayed mostly in state parks, which we prefer, our friends also suggested some great spots. Our G.PS., maps and brochures were also a great help.

We drove via Crowsnest Pass, British Columbia, Canada to Montana, U.S.A. Please click on photos for larger images Nikon D70 ©

We camped for three days at North Dickey’s Lake campground in Kootenai National Forest, Montana, U.S.A. The campground has self-registration and operates on a first come, first served policy, unless occupied or reserved . It was sunny and hot. Nikon ©

The fee was $10 per day, there were Bear-proof food-bins, fresh water, firewood for sale, washrooms, etc.  The camp-hosts were friendly and helpful. There were some Bumble-bees, but our Citronella filled lantern worked, we also covered our food with food umbrellas. The camp-sites are big, with the fire pit and table far from the camper, which we liked. The traffic noise wasn’t too bad, but I think over the weekend motor-bikes can be noisy. Nikon ©

The beach was within walking distance from our campsite. The dogs loved cooling off in the lake. Nikon ©

Welcome to Montana


    • Fortunately our food was in our caravan most of the time, but one had to be careful.
      The garbage containers are also bear proof, I took a photo of them in another camp. One place where we camped, the lids were so heavy I could hardly lift them and I think a bear is stronger than I am.;-)


I would ❤️ to hear from you.
