There is a full service RV park on the south west corner of I-15 exit #59 (south exit into Dillon, MT) For a REAL TREAT go about 21 miles west from that intersection on hwy 287 then left about 4 miles to Bannack State Park. Bannack was the first territorial capital of MT. There are still about 50 buildings still standing. Nonresident dry (one H2O faucet, CLEAN pit toilet) camping is $23/day including entry into the town. We are going up there 5/28-6/1. The best thing about camping there is that there is NO security lights, if it is the dark of the moon when the sun goes down it gets DARK! The other thing is that even though you are only about 25 miles from Dillon there is NO cell phone, hard wired phone, off air antenna TV or off air radio reception (the rangers in the VC have a radio phone to Dillon for emergences)!
Then it is only a 25 mile drive (good dirt road) to Lehmi Pass where, after looking west at mountain range after mountain range Lewis and Clark decided that there was NO easy water route to the Pacific Ocean!
An interesting fact- One of the things that President Jefferson charged L&C with was to discover the head waters of the Missouri River. At the top Lehmi Pass (also a nice picnic area) there is a Spring and a Monument which says that L&C determined that “Farthermost Spring” is the head waters of the Missouri River. However, About 70 miles N/E of Dillon at the town of Three Forks where the Jefferson, Madison and Gallatin Rivers come together is considered to be the headwaters of the Missouri River for modern day folks and map makers!
