ANACONDA – The gate and road at Lost Creek State Park will open for the 2021 season on Monday, May 10. The campground will also open at that time.

Snowpack is still covering portions of the park, but it will likely be clear by early May. However, flooding conditions during spring runoff may affect safety on the park road. Park staff will monitor these conditions for public safety.

The park campground is offered on a first-come, first-served basis through October. Please keep in mind that sites that can accommodate camping units more than 23 feet in total length are very limited. The park has one hand pump for potable water, and park visitors must pack out their own trash. Please plan your camping stay at the park accordingly.

Lost Creek State Park boasts spectacular gray limestone cliffs with pink and white granite formations that rise 1,200 feet above the canyon’s narrow floor. Lost Creek Falls, in the northwest corner of the park, cascades over a 50-foot drop to provide one of the most scenic and popular spots in the park. This area also abounds with opportunities for hiking, bicycling and viewing wildlife.

The park is about 12 miles north of Anaconda.
