Flickr album link: Rombo Campground
The Rombo Campground is located a few miles north of Painted Rocks state park on Highway 473. The West Fork Bitterroot River parallels this highway and large reservoir is featured in the neighboring Montana state park, so a camper will find many good fishing opportunities in this area. River rafting is also a summertime activity option and there are many hiking trails in this remote mountain wilderness.
The best part is since the state park camping facilities attract the big crowds, the lesser known camping spots in the Bitterroot National Forest are often overlooked by mainstream tourists. This presents an opportunity to find some peace and quiet, even during a busy holiday weekend. The Rombo Campground features 14 cozy campsites nestled in the shade of tall pines. Basic facilities, picnic tables, chargrill pits and drinking water are available. It is a very lengthy trip back to civilization, so stocking up heavy prior to arrival is necessary. This section of the Bitterroot National Forest is famous for being a premium large wild game viewing area, so it goes without saying that bear safe food storage will be necessary. For those who wish to escape from the big crowds to find a cozy place for rest and relaxation, be sure to chalk the Rombo Campground high on the list!
