Camping around Missoula/Alberton Area

Greetings Folks, we are heading over to Missoula this weekend and were wondering if there are any camping areas close to town, preferably on the W side heading towards Alberton. Going to see some shows Thurs/Fri, then hitting the Gorge for the weekend. Not looking for RV parks, more interested in tent camping, or stealth camping in our vehicle....any ideas? Lived in Missoula in the 90's, but never had to camp near town so I'm out of ideas.

The best camping I know of close to town is pattee canyon. There is a FS campground there and I think there'd be guerrilla camping if you drop down deer creek, but watch out for drunks doing target practice. Those shows are W of town and there has to be camping in the lolo national forest on that side of town. I'm guessing there's good camping up fish creek near the gorge, but not sure how far up you'd have to go. The nat'l forest boundary isn't very far from I-90.

There is sick camping right near the gorge. Awesome free FS camp in Fish creek just on the south side of the gorge.
