Where is Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park?
Montana’s first and best known State park features one of the highest decorated limestone caves in the northwest. Naturally air-conditioned, these spectacular caves lined with stalactites, stalagmites, columns and helictites date back to the time.
The hiking trails, huts and the campsite are open all year round. Guided tours of the caverns are available from 1 May to 30 September. Plan at least 2 hours to take a guided tour of the caverns. The Park also offers hiking trails, a brand new visitor center, an Amphitheater, picnic areas, a large campground, showers, RV dumps, Tipi and 3 cabins. Please note that the water is closed from 1 October to 30 April. Toilets, showers, drinking water and the RV landfill are only available in summer.
It is always a good time to explore the colorful limestone formations with a knowledgeable and friendly guide. See the geological evolution, learn about the history of early exploration, and gain insight into the delicate ecology of this world without light. If you’re in the Park, you might also want to explore the extensive trail system, visit an interpretation program, or purchase a unique product at the gift shop. You can use this Park as a base camp while enjoying several nearby state Parks, attractions, and the adjacent Jefferson River.
