Our family had a great time at the park. Parking is a bit expensive if you do not have a Montana plate; however, we didn't mind. You are given a map and historical information on the buildings. So rich in history! My children were excited...More

I would give this place six stars. Slightly off the beaten path but worth the drive. The ghost town has 60 structures. The tour is self guided with an informative pamphlet provided for the stroll. Great experience! They have a simple boy/girl scout and junior...More

I concur with Debby G, the Countryside RV park outside Dillon is a nice place to stay and just a short beautiful drive to Bannack.
