Camp Disappointment History
Established 22 Jul 1806 by Meriwether Lewis on the return trip of the Lewis & Clark Corps of Discovery. This post was the northern most camp of the expedition, built by Meriwether Lewis while he was exploring for the headwaters of the Marias River. Lewis found the headwaters of the Marias and headed up the north branch of the Cut Bank River (Creek) but stopped when he determined that it did not reach the 50th parallel. He named his camp, Camp Disappointment. The camp was abandoned on 26 Jul 1806.
