Advice along the way

We are hedging our bets that fuel will be down to under $3.00 a gallon come July, making a summer vacation affordable. All kidding aside, we are heading to Calgary for the big rodeo. We’ve got 3 weeks for the trip out and back. Could I get some advice from those of you who have been out that way?

(1) Thoughts on the route?
(2) Suggestions for campgrounds?
(3) Significant points of interest?

We’re pulling a tent-camper and do not need hookups. We can get by with primitive camp sites. Along with my wife, our two kids [6 and 8] will be making the trip.

If you take the standard route along US 2 be sure to stop for the photo op with the giant penguin in Cut Bank, MT. 

If you're a little more adventurous I'd try to plot your way out on state highways or county roads. Part of the fun there might be wondering if you'll find another gas station before you hit empty.
