    Rainbow Point Campground is located on the banks of scenic Hebgen Lake, in southwestern Montana. It is approximately 10 miles north of West Yellowstone and the West Entrance of Yellowstone National Park. Visitors enjoy the area for its boating, fishing and hiking opportunities, as well as its close proximity to Yellowstone.

    Hebgen Lake is considered Montana's premier still-water fishing lake. Anglers will find a healthy population of brown, cutthroat and rainbow trout. Boating and swimming are popular activities on the lake. A boat ramp is located within the campground. Hiking, biking and off-road vehicle trails crisscross the surrounding area.

    Bakers Hole is a nice place if you're just passing through and don't mind stopping in on a whim without a reservation. Rainbow Point is nice because you can reserve. The recreation.gov reservation system lets you reserve up to six months in advance but Rainbow Point is such a large campground that I was able to get us sites for the height of tourist season less than six months in advance.
