North Camp - Polaris
Montana vacation rental. It's not the Hilton, but it is a nice little place to land for a few nights or a week's stay. Sleeps 5 comfortably, completely furnished. Minutes from Maverick Mountain, hot springs, hiking trails, cross-country and more. Step out the door and you're practically in the Beaverhead/Deerlodge National Forest! Points of interest, places to go and things to do. Beaverhead County is rich in history and culture. If arriving in the spring, summer or fall, you may want to check out the museum in downtown Dillon. A wonderful collection of mining, ranching and Dillon history awaits you there. Bannack State Park is a 20 minute drive from North Camp. Bannack was the territorial capitol of Montana in the late 1800s. Many of the old buildings are still in place. Each year around the third week of July, Bannack holds its annual Bannack Days.
Fun for the entire family! Dillon hosts one of the biggest rodeos in Montana each year around Labor Day and a county fair that runs a week prior to the rodeo. Lewis and Clark journeyed through the area and Beaverhead County boosts two locations, Jackson Hot Springs and Beaverhead rock, where the expedition stopped. The famous Loop takes off right outside North Camp's door. You can travel over the Pioneer Mountain Scenic Byway to small rustic towns like Wise River, Wisdom and Jackson and be back before dinner! North Camp is located at the entrance to the Beaverhead/Deerlodge National Forest but there are also other day trips to wilderness areas outside of Jackson, Wisdom and Wise River. Arrangements can be made for horseback trips in the surrounding mountains. There are about 150 miles of groomed trails in the area and snowmobiles are available to rent in several locations or bring your own.
If you enjoy skiing, Maverick Mountain is less than 5 minutes from North Camp. Lots of trails for the experienced and beginner skier alike. Family atmosphere. Seldom are there lines at the lift. Bunny hill for the kids. Head out on your cross-country skis if you prefer the solitude of the back country. If you enjoy hiking, Coolidge Ghost Town located on the Byway, is worth the walk, or just head out the door at North Camp, Sawtooth Lake trail is a 10 minute drive away and the lake is about a 3 mile hike up. Crystal Park is located on the Byway, a unique wooded area where crystals of all sizes can be dug up. The area is rich in trout streams either on the Byway, around Dillon or fish one of the many other river accesses near Wise River and Wisdom. Attention Hunters! The Grasshopper Valley is a popular area where elk, mule deer and antelope abound.

This is a great place to relax. The area is wonderful. So much to do. We stayed 5 weeks, July 5th thru Aug 15th. We still did not have enough time to see everything in area. The home was just the place. We would for sure come back to North Camp.
Owner's reply: Thanks for the nice review Jim. Glad you and Sue enjoyed your stay.
