Deerlodge National Forest, in western Montana, offers camping, fishing, Wildlife Viewing, and hiking.

Developed camping sites usually contain a parking spur, table, fireplace, toilets and water. The developed campgrounds which require a fee are signed and post time limits. For the more venturesome, there are numerous isolated roadside and back country campsites.

Several trout species are found in the region, as well as kokanee, chinook, silver salmon, sturgeon and others. Departments establish seasons, set limits and enforce regulations.

Big game species found in the area include bear, elk, moose, big horn sheep, mule and whitetail deer, and Rocky Mountain Goat. Along the trails, naturalists and photographers can see a variety of songbirds. The forest offers 5 trails ranging from 3 to 10 miles. Most roads, trails, and areas are open to recreation use year round, but some restrictions are needed to protect resources.
