Lots of history here.

By far the most interesting place I've been to while staying in Montana. We spent most of the day there in an effort to see everything and still didn't get it covered. We even... read more

By far the most interesting place I've been to while staying in Montana. We spent most of the day there in an effort to see everything and still didn't get it covered. We even were able to take our dogs along with use on a leash of course. We were told they have ice stating on a pond in the... More

One of many ghost towns in Montana. Unlike most Ghost Towns, this one is not left to 'arrested decay'. They are constantly restoring things. Sign in Hotel pointed out they had redone interior of walls and painted. They were shooting a movie when I was there, lots of cowboys on horses.

November was a great time to visit the park. We were the only people there for several hours. The $6 fee is more than reasonable. The map and the booklet are free to use if you return it and if you want to keep the booklet its only $2. There are 60 buildings in the town. All but about 10... More

I love seeing areas that show our history. This is a great place to learn about the Montana territory. In July and September they have a weekend that there ar Living History Days. Great for kids and adults.

This is an amazing spot for all ages. Great history and you feel like you are a character in the old west. Pack a picnic and take the family.

I have read many reviews of this place on trip advisor and I have always wanted to go here. IT was so amazing. I loved it so much. It is this really cool old ghost town that you get to walk through and even go into the buildings. There are tons of stories about the buildings being haunted, if you... More

Never heard of Bannack State Park. Saw it listed on a map and off we went. Wow what a fun place to explore. The park attendant inside the office was very friendly and offered lots of information. Great place to take photos.

My sister lives near Bannack and had always talked about it so when we visited her this year we decided to check it out. It truly is a step back in time, there is a lot of interesting history to the town. When you walk into the old saloon you can almost hear a piano playing above the clinking of... More

This was not what we were expecting I guess. Mostly just moldy buildings falling apart inside. If you have mold allergies I would suggest not going inside the funkier buildings. I wish more of the buildings were restored and set up with period furnishings. I would not say this is worth the trip alone but if you're in the area... More

This is an awesome ghost town. All of the buildings are still standing and you can go in most of them. Glad we stopped.
