By the time you turn off scenic Highway 191 onto Storm Castle Creek Road (Forest Road 132), you may be wondering whether great tent camping awaits you. The turnoff comes a little more than 10 minutes after you enter Gallatin Canyon from the north, where you left the busyness of the Bozeman Valley. The thickening spruce-and-fir forest along the Gallatin River is appealing—but what’s with the U.S. Forest Service helipad and riverside pullouts and, where the road bends away from the river to follow Storm Castle Creek, a parking lot with two trailheads receiving a fair share of attention?
