We wanted to know what Gallatin Valley's best campsites looked like in our Ultimate Campsite Contest. Bob Wards even offered up some great prizes for the winner! We received over 25 submissions and then you voted on your favorite. Here is the winner of the voting!

John Fetter - Here's my favorite spot. It's just between Ennis and Virginia City, I believe that it is called Grassy Lake, and it is full of lizards. This shot is from the 4th of July. We could see the V.C. fire works from above. When that was all done, we crowded around the fire for some ribs and some tunes played by local Bozeman musician Tyler James, and my buddy Juice Box. The Rainier was mountain fresh, as well as the freedom. Thanks for the contest and the great country music. Thank you friends for joining me there for a great time.
