The Rambling Moose Campground is a perfect base camp for all of your outdoor adventures. With so much to do, you will need a quiet place Like ours to rest up for tomorrow's big adventures.


Outdoor Adventures

Our campground is located in Montana's Blue Ribbon Fishing and Hunting area. There are countless places to fish for tonight's dinner. There's even trophy fishing available for the kids in Virginia City. You can also hire a fly fishing guide (details in our gift shop). Orvis fishing guide, Jerry Schildroth will offer free fly fishing casting lessons in our campground once a week, just sign up in our gift shop.

If you love to hike or mountain bike, southwestern Montana boasts some of the best terrain for both enthusiasts to enjoy. When visiting Virginia City, don't forget to take the short hike up to Boot Hill and explore the old cemetery. There’s also a quick mile to the west to tour the old town of Nevada City and experience living history in action.

Bring your ATV or UTV and head up into the surrounding mountains for miles of off-road adventures. You can drive them into town if they are street legal.

We can't forget to mention the ziplining or white water rafting for the really adventurist souls.


Virginia City

The "living ghost town" of Virginia City is a well-preserved Old West Victorian gold mining town located only 60 miles from  West Yellowstone on the Vigilante Trail and 1/2 mile from our campground. There is something for everyone to do in town. The whole family can enjoy a tour on the Alder Gulch Shortline Railroad, antique Fire Truck, or an old fashioned stagecoach.

Want to really experience 'gold fever', then spend some time panning for gold. We sell the panning supplies you need in our gift shop. How about a night of fun enjoying the shows at either the Brewery Follies Cabaret or the Illustrious Virginia City Players. Don't forget to enjoy one of the great restaurants before the show or relax in one of our historic bars after the show.

If you want to experience chills with a fun-filled adventure, take a walking ghost tour in the evening.

Shopping more of your speed? Browse the fun shops throughout town while you are touring the authentic homes and businesses that were left behind after the gold rush.

Don't forget to check with the Virginia City Chamber of Commerce for the listing of special events and festivals held all year long!
