The historic Remount Depot at Ninemile Ranger Station was established in 1930 when the Forest Service purchased the old Allen Ranch. The Remount Depot bred mules for 32 years to assist with fire suppression. In the heyday, there were over 1500 animals at the station with 35 animal packers. Today 200 head make their way from all across Montana, northern Idaho, and some from Wyoming to spend their winters here. We have a visitor center open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, and a self-guided tour available any time of the year. It’s a great place to relax and look into some greener pastures.
This campground is located on the east shoreline of Seeley Lake. A great place to cool off on a hot day, it has a beach and a boat launch as well as shade if you just want to lay around the campsite. Popular activities include: fishing, swimming, water skiing, boating, and bird watching. There is also an interpretive area and a nature trail at the campground.
