The Blackfeet Tribe is working on improving three campgrounds on the east side after it received a $65,000 grant from the Montana Department of Commerce, according to a report by the Flathead Beacon.

The money will be used to improve and rehabilitate the Sleeping Wolf Campground near Browning, the Red Gap Campground near East Glacier Park and the Chewing Backbones Campground near St. Mary.

Most of the money will be used to improve the facilities, but parts of it will also be doled out to pay for campground employees, signage and a new website. In the application for the Indian Country Economic Development Grant, tribal officials noted that the campgrounds would be popular with people in RVs because of the restrictions on those vehicles inside the park.
