Current Conditions: At this time, drinking water is NOT available within the Lake Como Recreation Area (including the Lower Como Campground).  Water test results have showed the presence of coliform bacteria, which are naturally present in the environment and used as an indicator that other, potentially harmful bacteria may be present.  We are working on troubleshooting the system to determine if the source is contaminated or if there is a problem with the distribution system.  Please contact the Darby Ranger Station at 406-821-3913 for updates or more information.  Thank you for your patience while we work through the process.
