General Information

Description - Located in the Bitterroot Mountains, Painted Rocks Reservoir offers boating, camping, and fishing in a scenic, western pine-forest setting. The park is 293 acres in size and is 4,700 feet in elevation. This area offers 25 sites with vault toilets, grills, fire rings, picnic tables, a boat ramp, drinking water, and limits of RV/trailers of 25 feet. Due to its primitive designation, the park is pack-in/pack-out and there are no fees to use the site. However, donations are accepted to assist with maintenance of the site. Water levels for boating can be poor at this site after 8/1 and there is a 14 day limit for camping in a 30 day period. A museum is located nearby in Darby.
