Where can I park my truck camper around big sky
Going on a 3 week ski road trip, leaving Feb 15th. Plan to go wherever its gonna snow the most but would really like to hit up big sky if I can, never been. Have the ikon pass will be rolling in my F150 with a slide in truck camper. Is there any lot or anywhere someone knows I can park overnight in big sky without getting yelled at? From posts on this forum it seems like its getting harder to do?
I was just there a few days ago. I saw truck campers overnight on the access road up to moonlight on the outside of some of the bigger turns. They were parked up.
Also saw semis parked in the turn outs/pull outs on the road south to west Yellowstone. So I’d assume that’s fair game.
There's a trailhead south of town, maybe 15 minutes out that I camped at last year, no problems.
Thanks my dudes i think I found what you guys are talking about on google maps. I will definitely be giving it a shot
I spent multiple nights there last season in a camper van. Of the 20 hills I went to on that road trip Big Sky was the worst for the "No overnight" parking rule.
That being said, if you look on google maps there is 3 completely empty cul-de-sacs side by side with zero traffic or houses.
Road names are Speaking eagle, spotted eagle and black moon road.
I slept there 3 nights in a row with no problems. Very quiet and peaceful!
However if you're like me when I was doing the trip, I much preferred sleeping parked next to others that were camping, made me feel more safe. If you drive Lone mountain trail, which is the road between the ski hill and the town, there are multiple pull off spots along the way, it wasn't hard to find a spot where another camper had pulled off for the night.
I would recommend doing what I did, when your ready to go park for the night drive Lone mountain and see if you can see someone else parked for the night, and if you see nobody go to the quiet cul-de-sac.
Hope this helps!
Enjoy Big Sky! its still to this day my favorite of 50 hills i have been to.
I go on free campsites . net to find spots when I’m car camping. Always works pretty for finding good spots.
