Ruby Reservoir

Dillon Montana

Listing Type: Recreation Area
City: Dillon Montana
Region: Southwest Montana

The Ruby Reservoir in southwestern MT, 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. Water should be carried in. Good fishing for trout when water level permits. Remote location receives only moderate use. Peaceful; willows along shoreline; remainder of site is treeless. There is a boat access to the reservoir, which is stocked with trout. Pets are permitted, but must be kept on a leash. Please limit your stay to 14 days.

Directions: Ruby Reservoir is located 9 miles south of Alder, Montana on the paved county road. South of Twin Bridges on Montana Highway 287 to Alder - South to East Shore of Ruby River Reservoir.
