Bozeman, Montana

We are picking up our new Escape in Bozeman in late June/early July. Any recommendations on where to stay? We will need hookups as we won't have solar panels.

I did not know Escape would deliver to Bozeman? Why not continue onto Chilliwack?

Sometime life gets in the way of living.......

You do have a battery...unless you have something that draws a lot of June/July you should be able to get along a few days without hookups.

Yes, Bozeman is a delivery hub for Escape. Go to the Escape website, click “Get Started” on the header, then “USA Deliveries.” You will see all the delivery hubs and their associated costs.

We are doing the same as Julia, having our 21C delivered to Bozeman (in late May/early June for us). We decided this for a few reasons: 1) It is another 800 miles (13 hours or more) from Bozeman to Chilliwack, 2) We have never towed anything before and there are some pretty steep grades out that way (right?), and 3) We want to make this trip a vacation and stay in nearby Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks (unless delivery logistics scramble those plans).

We have reservations at Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park just outside the West Yellowstone gate. That is about 90 miles from Bozeman. We have heard good things, and they have full hook ups. For Grand Teton, all we could find for pull-through sites with full hook ups (we are chickens and do not want to do the whole backing in thing right away ) is Headwaters Campground at the North entrance. Not ideal, but it will do.

Good luck on your travel plans and Bozeman delivery, Julia!

I always stay at Bozeman Hot Springs Campground. It's not the cheapest, but while you stay you get a free pass to the hot springs, which are fabulous. The facilities are nice and the staff friendly...I highly recommend it!

Lewis and Clark Caverns state park was one of my favourite spots when we passed through that area several years ago.

I stayed at Lewis and Clark State park in 1969 in early June. I had a Honda motorcycle and was on my way to Idaho via Lolo Pass. I stretched a tarp off the Honda and crawled in my sleeping bag. The earth moving under my head the next morning woke me up. I rolled over. A western pocket gopher was pushing up a mound in its search for food. It was snowing. As I packed up and left the park down to where interstate 90 was being built snow turned to freezing rain. By the time I got to Deer Lodge there was about three inches of wet snow on the road. But by about 6 that evening I was at the confluence of the Lochsa and Selway Rivers and checked into the bunkhouse at the Fenn Ranger Station which was to be my home for the next three months. I been there numerous times since. Still love that Selway Bitterroot wilderness area. I’ve not camped at Lewis and Clark since. Probably a fear of revenge of the pocket gophers but that’s a story for another time.
