Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park

Arriving without reservations, we find only a single electric site available for 2 nights at the Lewis and Clark Caverns campground – a state park campground in south central Montana.  Set in a meadow with a few trees, only 9 of the 40 sites offer power connections.  We snag electric site P4, a pull-through site along the outside edge, and D4, a nearby site without power.  Each site also provide a picnic table and fire pit.  There is a threaded fresh water fill and dump station.  Electric sites are $34/night including the state parks nightly fee.

Of course, the attraction here are the Lewis and Clark Caverns, never actually visited by Lewis or Clark.  But, for a $12 fee, you can hike up the ¾ mile trek to the cave entrance and enjoy the history, facts and a few jokes about this beautiful underworld.  In addition to the tour, the cool 50 degrees inside the cave is a welcome relief to the hot temperatures hovering in the low 90’s outside.   The Canada Road Trip is about to come to an end as we spend one of our last nights under the dark, starry skies of “Big Sky” country.

Tomorrow we’ll be in Sheridan, Wyoming, with a quick overnight at the Sheridan KOA before arriving back home in Colorado.  On Thursday we’re off to Taos, NM – more from there…
