camping in/near Bozeman/bears


We would like to spend some time tent camping this summer with our small dog in the Bozemen area while visiting relatives. What campgrounds are nice (meaning not like a parking lot)? Also, nervous about grizzlies; are there areas that would be safe in that respect?

No grizzlies in Bozeman. Set that fear completely aside. If you saw a bear, it would be a black bear, which isn't the same thing at all.

I know there's a KOA at four corners west of town, but that may have too many rv's for your taste. Still, a swim at Bozeman Hot Springs next door is always welcome.

Hyalite Canyon has National Forest campgrounds. That's south of town.
