Yes, Bannack is open, and even though there is still obviously repair work going on from the terrible flash flood, there is still plenty to see. The other reviews cover the great historical town site, so I will suggest some other "Bannack" stops. Turn off 278. On the way, watch for two old cemeteries on left. A respectful stroll through these leaves one with a clearer picture of the fragility and often brevity of life in the territory. The campground at Bannack is nice, many sites are along beautiful Grasshopper Creek. Bring xtra bug spray mid summer.There are picnic tables and clean restrooms in the parking lot by the townsite. Bring a lunch. Water for sale in gift shop. The granite mugs for sale are very heavy and nice. Books for sale you may not find other places. Huge pavilion for group rent across creek. If you have good tires & clearance, drive down canyon a bit. If you have good legs, plan hike to Road Agent Rock. Trail guide sign by power station, before cemetery is oriented oddly, look over your left shoulder. Can't drive/go to mine, bring zoom lens.
