Three Forks, Montana
Visiting Three Forks, Montana.
July 30, 2007.
We are staying in Cameron RV-Park & Store in Cameron, Montana. Cameron is a STORE located 10-miles south of Ennis in the Madison Valley. The Cameron RV-Park is about 12 sites located behind the Store & Saloon (the social gathering place for miles around). The PPA campground is nothing fancy but for the PPA price of $12.50 for FHU it is just fine. The view over the Madison Valley and mountains surrounding Virginia City is worth the $12.50.
Today we are traveling in our motorhome from Helena, Montana to Ennis, Montana and have stopped at Wheat Montana a well known business that specializes in wheat products from flour to bakery goods. We dropped the motorhome in their parking lot while we drove our "little red Saturn" to visit Headwaters of the Missouri State Park and Three Forks, Montana.
After visiting Headwaters of the Missouri State Park we headed in to the city of Three Forks, Montana. It was only about 3-miles into the city.
Old Grain Elevator in Three Forks, Montana
On the way into Three Forks we passed this old grain elevator. There seems to be a good number of these old grain elevators still in existence. I wonder if this one is still in operation. We did not see any activity around the building so I would guess not.

Three Forks has several restaurants and a museum but we didn't stop. It is hot and we want to get back to the motorhome and continue our journey to Ennis.
US-287 following the Jefferson River
As we continued south on US-287 from exit 274 on I-90 the highway followed the Jefferson River for a few miles. The road during this section was notably scenic as the narrow highway threaded its way between the sheer cliffs and the river.
