Dayton Creek Road is an easy, long, straight-through gravel road that winds along the southern end of the popular Blacktail Wild Bill OHV Trail system. This road is the main access road to the Upper Dayton Creek OHV Trailhead. Along the route are spectacular views of Lake Mary Ronan and distant views of Flathead Lake, Wild Horse Island, and the Mission Range Mountains. Combing this road with Truman Creek and Wild Bill Creek will create a complete loop around the OHV trails and Eagle Mountain. Although dispersed camping is allowed, the only suitable locations are around the Upper Dayton Creek Trailhead and one lonely site near the road's eastern end. Dense trees and steep terrain make dispersed camping along this road difficult. Be aware that the eastern 3 miles of this road are seasonally closed 12/1-3/31, while the rest of the road is open year-round.
