As part of the greater Custer Gallatin National Forest, Pine Creek Campground is surrounded by opportunities for recreation. Just a short distance away are many miles of hiking trails, various lakes and ponds, and several opportunities to explore historical structures as well as learn about the surrounding wildlife and scenery.
A total of 27 sites are offered in Pine Creek Campground. These sites offer a combination of modern amenities and more primitive fare, so make sure to ascertain precisely which type of site you're reserving as prices vary between options. If you've booked a standard site but are coming in an RV, be sure to double-check that your spot has a parking spur that accommodates your vehicle. Electric sites are unavailable, and water taps can only be found adjacent to the vaulted restroom facilities. Visitors with canines are welcome in Pine Creek, although pets must be either leashed or caged during their overnight stays.
Hiking is a big attraction for campers at Pine Creek. Several different trailheads are nearby, including the Bacon Rind, Battle Ridge, Sheep Creek, and Eldridge entrances. If you're just looking to get Fido out for a quick walk or potty break, you might try the Creekside Trail, a half-mile interpretive nature trail that runs along the creek through the campground. This area is stocked with refuse bins, which makes it especially easy to dispose of any waste left by your canine companion.
If you're looking to fish while staying in Pine Creek, you'll have several lakes and ponds within walking and driving distance of your site. The nearby Pine Creek has a fishing dock within the campground itself, which makes enjoying the sport quite convenient. Dogs are welcome to stay with their angling owners while they catch dinner for the evening, provided they're kept on restraint and away from other fishers.
