Rainbow Point Campground


Montana Campgrounds

Rainbow Point Campground is located in the Hebgen Lake Ranger District of the Gallatin National Forest, which is located in South Central Montana.

The campground is situated next to Hebgen Lake, which is a popular water recreation and fishing lake.


Rainbow Point Campground gets its name because of the rainbow that is often seen touching down at the campground after a rainstorm.
