Park Passes and Fees
There are tons of fantastic parks and public lands in Idaho and Montana. For Montana parks not too far from Idaho, look into Big Arm State Park or Bannack State Park. Both offer campgrounds or nearby lodging, and senior citizen discounts. For Idaho, try Bear Lake State Park or Castle Rocks State Park. Senior discounts are available but please note that discounts must be processed by phone. Idaho is also full of national forests--a great destination while you're in the area--such as Clearwater National Forest. Click on the parks' Official URLs for more details about discounts and lodging. Enjoy!
It's a short day hike from Moon Lake Campgrounds to the Brown Duck Trail. There's plenty of camping opportunities in nearby East Basin. Please note some trail areas may be inaccessible due to winter weather. For more information, visit the Forest Service's page on Ashley National Forest: http://www.fs.usda.gov/ashley. Have a fun and safe adventure!
