The Ruby Reservoir in southwestern Montana, offers a barely developed campground with primitive toilets on Ruby Reservoir, about 12 miles west of Virginia City. The reservoir was developed to supply irrigation to ranches and is therefore subject to large fluctuations in depth.

Bring your drinking water. There is boat access to the reservoir, which is stocked with trout. Good fishing when water level permits. Being in a remote location the reservoir receives only moderate use. Peaceful willows along shoreline; remainder of site is treeless. Pets are permitted but must be kept on a leash. Please limit your stay to 14 days.
