Bannack State Park Changes to Spring Hours

Bannack State Park changes to spring hours on Sunday, March 9. Spring hours are 8am until dusk.

Spring is a wonderful time to visit the park as the weather has warmed, the snow is gone, the birds are singing and the summer crowds have not arrived.

Bannack State Park is one of the best-preserved ghost towns in America, site of the first major gold rush in Montana and the first Territorial Capital. Once home to the infamous sheriff Henry Plummer and his gang of outlaws, the history that occurred at Bannack is incredible.

Tour booklets are available at the gate for self guided tours.

The park and campgrounds are open all year. Bannack is located 25 miles southwest of Dillon, just 4 miles off Highway 278. For information call the park at 834-3413.
