BILLINGS – June is a beautiful time of year to camp in Montana – or at least it usually is.
But this year, getting to campgrounds this year can be impossible after this month’s major floods.
“The East Rosebud has significant road damage throughout the drainage,” Mariah Leuschen-Lonergan, the public affairs specialist with the U.S. Forest Service (USFS), said Tuesday.
The USFS now expects many popular campgrounds near Red Lodge to be closed for the entire summer.

“Sheridan, Rattin, M-K, and Limber Pine are all campgrounds that we anticipate are going to be closed for the season,” said Leuschen-Lonergan.
As you head down the Stillwater Valley, it’s similar sight. Woodbine, Jimmy Joe, and East Rosebud campgrounds are also expected to remain closed for the year.
