About
Nestled between two rivers, Collins is roughly 5 miles from the interstate, albeit mostly gravel. There are two railroad trestles, the Muddy Creek Railroad Trestle to the north and the Teton River Railroad Trestle to the south. Wildlife frequent the area, so bear safe food storage is required . Wildlife that surround the area include mule deer, whitetail deer, antelope, coyotes, foxes, pheasants, turkeys, rattlesnakes and the occasional moose or grizzly bear. This area is the heart of Montana's Golden Triangle, so there are fields, both in crop and fallow, that surround the area. Collins started out as a place to fuel the steam trains of the late 1800s, early 1900s with water. Water was pulled from the Teton River to the rail station in Collins. Originally there were wooden trestles over the Muddy Creek and Teton River. These wooden trestles were eventually replaced with the steel ones still present today. Some of the infrastructure to accomplish these engineering feats are still visible. You'll have a quiet parking spot to yourself. Our neighbors are quiet, but there may be some light traffic on the county road if you are visiting during harvest or hunting season. You will have great views of the sunrise, sunset and stars. There is not a lot of light pollution in our slice of Big Sky Country. Weather in our area can be quite volatile; drastic change in temperatures, wind, smoke, and snow. However over half of the year, 60-70% of the time, the skies are sunny. Cell phone coverage: Decent Verizon and AT&T available at the site (not experienced with Sprint or discount networks). Cell signal will drop when traveling into the river bottoms and coulees. Local amenities Conrad: approximately 20 miles to the north - Transportation Museum, restaurants, grocery and fuel available Choteau: approximately 25 miles to the west - Old Trail Museum, restaurants, grocery and fuel available Great Falls: approximately 45 miles to the south - Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center, CM Russell Museum, restaurants, and major retailers Port of Sweet Grass & Canadian Border: approximately 80 miles to the north East Glacier & Glacier National Park: approximately 100 miles to the northwest St. Mary & Glacier National Park: approximately 120 miles to the northwest West Glacier & Glacier National Park: approximately 160 miles away to the north and west

HOST
We are from North Central Montana. We RV as a family and have gradually increased our RV size as our family has grown over the past 10 years. We have 2 kids. We are pretty accustomed to boondocking as most camping in Montana is "dry" camping. Depending on the season and weather we utilize our generator and solar panel for additional power needs. We sometimes pull double and bring our boat for the adventure.

House Rules
No smoking or open fires as the location is surrounded by wheat, barley and hay fields. Propane fire pits may be used depending upon local burning restrictions. Oddly enough, Grizzly bears do frequent the area, so bear-proof food storage is necessary. Quiet hours from 10 PM- 7 AM to be cognizant of neighbors.
