Lake Como Forest Service Campground, Darby MT

Stay Date:  June 2006
Our Rating:  GOOD – 9
A beautiful Forest Service campground in the trees near the magical Lake Como.  Three Lake Como Campground2miles off Highway 93 on good paved roads, the campground has a number of pull-thru loops that easily accommodate a big rig.  30A power only, with water hookups & no sewer, but bring lots of hose as the hookups are not centrally located.  Lots of large pine trees, very difficult to find a clear shot at the satellite, no Verizon Cell or Aircard, and no broadcast TV, but who cares?  The sound of rushing water from the stream below the dam, the smell of the outdoors, and the deer that wander the campground provide enough entertainment.  A short walk takes you to the Lake where you can fish, swim, or just stare at the Bitterroot mountains.   Busy during the summer, but fairly easy to get a site when school is still in session.  $16 a day for a hookup site, but only $8 with the senior  “America the Beautiful” card (“Geezer Pass”).
