We stopped by here on our way to Bozeman to inquire about the amenities and to maybe buy a postcard or a souvenir. The lady inside was very nice and gave me lots of good information, including that she traveled with her dogs, as we did also. I left and decided to take our dogs for a walk around the...

Visited with our one year old and stayed in a cabin. Staff was friendly and helpful. Overall the stay was comfortable; however, Maintenance and visual appeal could have been improved. Back of trading post facing the campground was cluttered but material was there to make improvements with effort. Also, the pond could be much more inviting and enjoyable to spend...

As a Great Divide Mountain Biker, this stop is a must. Located just 3 miles off the famous GDMBTR. You don't have to go primitive if your still want excellence in facilities and service. It's quiet yet allows easy access to the Lake and forest roads. The Yurt is a awesome exchange for tenting on the ground. You get a...

We decided on a last minute weekend camping trip and were lucky enough to get the last cabin. The cabin is small and cozy with a bunk bed and a couple of comfy chairs. The beds were surprisingly comfy too. The cabin has a small deck with a table and chairs, and a large picnic table with a fire pit...

The cabin we were in was the very last one that you would have to haul all your things to because there isn't a road going back that far to unload. Having a knee problem, walking that far and hauling everything is more than frustrating. Cabin was good and they provide a lamp, but water is another haul. Be pre-paired...

Enjoyed this property! Fantastic people from my same neck of the woods. Easy to work with, able to move from a yurt to a cabin, no fuss. Loved talking football with Joe, loved the East Coast personality!

Joe cooked up some excellent sandwiches for these two hungry bicyclists. And hot showers! So nice after 50-60 miles on the road with high speed traffic in a hurry to get "somewhere". This was a wonderful quiet little oasis.

We were on a cross country cycling trip this past summer and stopped at the Swan Lake Trading Post for supplies on our way to camp at the USFS campground up the road. We didn't make it that far because, for $5 more we could stay in one of their new yurts and have wifi! Such a treat, not having...

We stayed in one of their newly acquired yurts and had a great time. It was a wonderful experience for my husband and I, who are normally tent campers, as the yurts are raised off the ground and have cots -- a nice change from sleeping on the ground and a cool experience overall. The owners are super friendly, really...

Joe and Jocelyn are 2 of the nicest people. The cabin I stayed in for the night was so cozy. The food that is made in the cute kitchen is delicious, from the cold sandwiches too the hot lunch and dinner specials. We also stayed there with our 5th wheel. All around a great stay.
