Come walk the deserted streets of Bannack and discover for yourself the realities of the 'Old West.' Bannack is the best preserved of all Montana ghost towns. It is unique.preserved rather than restored.protected rather than exploited.'

Bannack State Park is a registered historic landmark and the site of Montana's first major gold discovery on July 28, 1862. This strike set off a massive gold rush that swelled Bannack's population to over 3,000 by 1863. As the value of gold steadily dwindled, Bannack's bustling population was slowly snuffed out. There are over 50 buildings that line Main Street with their historic log and frame structures that recall Montana's formative years.

Bannack Days with historic displays, activities and events is held the third weekend in July each year. The visitor center does tours and is open from Memorial Day through Labor Day. A tipi is available to rent from the center.

The park is 5,800 feet in elevation and 1,254 acres in size. The campground has 28 sites and a group picnic site. A 14-day camping limit is in effect. The campgrounds include vaulted toilets, grill/fire rings, firewood, picnic tables, trash cans, drinking water, and access to Grasshopper Creek for fishing. Flush toilets are located in the visitor center.

Many more amenities are available in nearby Dillon.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
September 29 Along Grasshopper Creek! by wagonfullofflowers
This place has a quiet feeling and it was nice and shady at the campground. I have visited this place and traveled through the town, only park rangers live within townsite or have offices there. It is a out of the way place to get away from the fast past lifestyle. Come and visit and maybe stay awhile.
