Here, you can learn all about this location’s history, its operations today, its origins within the Harvest Hosts community, and what future visitors can expect to experience.The beautiful Mission Mountains make for excellent views at Silver Knot.

The History

The Silver Knot gives visitors a true “Montana Welcome”. Kurt and Traci Johnson, the owners, offer visitors a scenic drive as they travel past Crow Creek, up the drive towards a view of the breathtaking Mission Mountains. For years, the location has been operating as a destination wedding venue. However, because of COVID-19, their wedding bookings have dwindled. As a result, in the summer of 2020, they have decided to branch out and build a small campground. This camping area will eventually be made available to wedding families and their guests in future wedding seasons.The SIlver Knot wedding venue sits lit up against a night sky.
