Whether it's a day hike, picnic, fishing expedition, overnight camping trip, or just a chance to walk the dog, folks are venturing into Montana's state parks and fishing access sites. Each year, there are millions of visits to these sites. To help protect the resources for your next visit and ensure that every outing is a quality experience, certain rules and regulations have been established. In addition, certain standards of behaviors should be followed to help protect the places and experiences you value.
The five-member Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) Commission approves certain rules of the Department as provided by statute. These include fees that are charged at all FWP sites.
