Pete Creek Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Three miles west of Yaak, Pete Creek is a quiet spot just off MT 508. It sits back far enough from the road that only a few sites may have bothersome road noise. Sites are well spaced, and many have a cozy, secluded feel due to the cedar, fir, larch, and spruce trees. Huge rock walls provide a dramatic backdrop and a place to challenge a budding rock climber interested in some bouldering (behind large, wooded site 8).

Sites 9–11 are three secluded and wooded walk-in sites for individuals or couples traveling light and not needing a car close by. They sit on a hilltop above Pete Creek, with a trail leading down to a nice swimming hole complete with a small beach area. Site 11 is the best of the trio, set farther off the trail and offering a little more privacy from other campers using the trail to access the creek and the Yaak River. Site 1 is small and right off the road, but it is on the creek, and a waterfall dampens the road noise."
