Four Day Pack Trips

Campfire Lake

Campfire Lake

Ride up the breath-taking Sweet Grass Canyon to a pristine alpine lake high in the Crazy Mountains, one of the most beautiful spots in Montana. Pitch camp amongst the wild flowers and snow-capped peaks and enjoy hearty meals cooked over a campfire. Explore the surrounding valleys and lakes on horseback during your stay at camp. Swim, fish or just sit back and appreciate the peaceful tranquility of the mountains.

All food and supplies are carried by a pack horse, accommodations are shared traditional canvas wall tents.

Pack trips are available throughout July and August, we like to keep group numbers between four and eight.
