It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Montana

Peak Season: June to August

Everyone from roadtrippers to flyfishers pack the state’s byways, national parks, and campgrounds in the peak summer months. Expect park roads to look like parking lots. Caution: Summer is also wildfire season.

Off Season: November to April

Many attractions, park services and roads are closed in winter and snow can make driving hazardous.

Sweet Spot: May; September to mid-October

The parks are quieter in May before the summer hordes descend. In early fall, the summer travelers have left and the snows have yet to start. Days are generally dry and sunny, though it might still be quite cold at night in October, especially in eastern Montana.
