Wallace RV Park , Wallace, Idaho

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Wallace, ID is a wonderful little town. Wallace RV Park is a great little park. It is small but clean, neat, quaint and friendly (with a GREAT restaurant on the property). We were on site 14 (30 on the site map) and, because of its angle, we had plenty of room on our social side and backed up to a really pretty babbling brook. The utilities were good, but no wifi. Our only complaint about the park was that parking your RV can be a challenge. If the park is full or close to full you don't have room to swing and negotiate the elements of backing in. One day in particular we had to move our truck 4 times to give others enough room to park. We didn't mind the moving, but you should know you might have to knock on a door and ask someone to move their vehicle. The park is within walking distance to town and the town is SO worth seeing. We camped at Wallace RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rocky Mountain Hi RV Park & Campground, Kalispell, Montana

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Nice RV park. We were parked on the back row so we had a great view of the pasture behind the park with the backdrop of the mountains leading to Glacier National Park. The park is neat and clean but a little crowded. There is a section for the smaller RVs, and then the larger ones. There appears to be some seasonal campers, but it wasn't junky at all. The roads and sites are gravel with grass in between - dusty. It was extremely dry while we were there so everything was brownish. Our sewer hookup was up out of the ground about 5 or 6 inches so we had to jack up our 5th wheel so we had drainage. Otherwise the utilities were fine. They offer wifi and there was a repeater right next to our site. However, the choice of the park's wifi never came up in my computer. Kalispell is nice city and has just about anything you might need. It's a thriving town and the gateway to a beautiful national park. We camped at Rocky Mountain Hi RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Harrison RV Park (Military FamCamp), Fort William Henry Harrison, MT, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

Although the sites were terribly close together, and they installed 50 amp in the small sites and 30 amp in the larger sites, and there is an island built up with curbs in between each site that houses the sewer hookup (making the sewer hookup higher than the RV's connection) I have to say the park is comfortable. The park host is immaculate in his upkeep. As soon as an RV pulls out, he checks the site for any grass or weeds that might have come up through the gravel then he rakes the island and the gravel the where the RV parks. There is no trash, no junk, nothing unsightly at all. There is no wifi. The utilities are fine (power went out once and they had to change out the big 200 amp breaker, but they took care of it within a few hours). A word about the utilities: The park was originally set up to park social side to social side making the utilities on wrong sides, etc. However, when you go there to park, the host has you park in a normal fashion so you have to run electric under your rig (or other utilities). Even though there are quite a few negatives, the park host does an outstanding job keeping it neat, clean and comfortable. We would go back. We camped at Fort Harrison RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Valley View RV Park, Island Park, Idaho

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

The views of the surrounding mountains is breathtaking! Even though it is about 15 miles from the entrance to Yellowstone, it really isn't inconvenient. The utilities worked fine. All that being said, the ambiance of this park is sorely lacking. As we were being led in to our site on the back row, the fellow in the golf cart took us behind the building and in front of the front row of RVs. There was all sorts of yard equipment and what-not scattered behind the building that made it look very junky. As we got to the road at the very rear of the park, there was property behind the park (not hidden in any way) that was junked up and very unsightly. In consideration of the surrounding beauty the unkempt atmosphere was an unpleasant surprise. The sites are all pull through but, in our section, they were straight on instead of slanted. Hard to get in to because they aren't very long and almost impossible to get out of. The internal roads are too small to allow for the wide swing to avoid posts, trees, other RVs, etc. We had to back our RV on to the road behind us at a 90 degree angle to get out. $60 is a ridiculous amount to charge for this park, but they can get it because of their proximity to Yellowstone. We won't be back. We camped at Valley View RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Grandview Campground & RV Park, Hardin, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

We are grateful to this campground as we had some truck trouble and traveling with another couple and their rig. Grandview was kind enough to squeeze us in for a couple of nights while we got the truck fixed. The sites are roomy and utilities were good and well located. The park was clean and the staff were very nice and helpful. We have no complaints and would recommend this park on your way through Montana. We camped at Grandview Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch, Big Timber, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This park was a pleasant surprise. Very clean, neat, well laid out park. Not to mention beautiful. There are several trout ponds that have wonderfully clean, clear water and trout that are at least 14 to 18 inches long. It also sits on a river that is very picturesque. There are big trees throughout and the park, as a whole, is comfortable and roomy. All the utilities were fine - we didn't even try the wifi so we can't comment. I think our only negative is the road approaching the park. When you turn off of the main road you enter a single lane (smaller than single lane) dirt/gravel road for about a quarter mile. The problem is if you were to meet up with another RV coming the other way there would be big problems. Otherwise, this is a great park and highly recommended. We camped at Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

7th Ranch RV Camp, Garryowen, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Whoever laid out this park knew what they were doing. All sites are pull throughs and and angled in such a way that each RV is able to take advantage of the beautiful vista. The park is tiered up a hill yet the sites are are level and long. There is adequate space between each RV so it does not feel crowded at all. Roads and sites are gravel with grassy areas in between. Very nice park. Wifi was good and strong (the repeater was right next to our site). All utilities worked just fine and they are also laid out well so you don't need an abundance of hose or pipe, etc. Our only complaint about this park was that it is miles from anything; 5 miles from Little Big Horn and a gas station, had to go further for diesel. 20 miles from the nearest grocery store, and 7 miles from the nearest restaurant. There is a gravel road getting to the park that had some wash boarding. Not too bad, but be aware. We camped at 7th Ranch RV Camp in a Fifth Wheel.

Big Sky Camp and RV Park, Miles City, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This is a clean, well kept park. The sites are very long so there is plenty of room for rig and other vehicle. The sites are gravel and grass and in good shape. WiFi was okay, utilities were okay (only 30 amp). Our complaint is the parking in the sites is social side to social side and close together (awnings touching). It feels like your space is being invaded and you're invading someone else's space. I hated it! I can see it if you've come with some friends and want to spend as much time together as possible - but not with strangers. We camped at Big Sky Camp and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Ellsworth AFB FamCamp (Military FamCamp), Ellsworth AFB, South Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice park. The park is in a wagon wheel layout which gives each RV plenty of room. There is sun and shade, very clean restrooms and laundry rooms, and the grounds are kept up and mowed regularly. The roads are paved and the pads are concrete. All utilities worked fine. The park is set near 2 of the base gates - convenient; and the base isn't so far out of town that it is inconvenient. Our only complaint was the wifi was too slow - we used our hotspot. Otherwise, very nice! We camped at Ellsworth AFB FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Eagle's Rest RV Park & Camping, Chadron, Nebraska

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Just a quaint little RV Park on 385 N in Chadron, NE. It was clean, neat, quiet and a great place to hang our hat for the night while passing through. The roads and sites are gravel with grass between. Looked like all sites were pull-through with a post in the center. We would stay there again. Chadron appeared to be a pretty little town in a very scenic part of western Nebraska. We camped at Eagle's Rest RV Park & Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

Crow Creek FamCamp (Military FamCamp), F. E. Warren AFB, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This is a fine park. Our only complaint is the grass needed cutting really bad. Our site was comfortable with plenty of room between other RV's and antelope hanging around eating (which was a real nice surprise). The park sits in a bowl and there are train tracks atop one side of a burm. Even though the train is very close, it is not loud or disturbing at all. Wifi was ok, Verizon signal was ok and utilities were fine. We were supposed to stay only 2 nights but I got tonsillitis and they were very nice to work with us so we could stay longer for me to recover. We would go back. We camped at Crow Creek FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Riverview RV Park & Campground, Loveland, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

The location of this park was great for visiting Estes Park and the Rocky Mountain National Park. Hwy 34 between Loveland and Estes Park has been closed for several years and just re-opened about a month ago and the drive between the RV park and Estes Park is quite beautiful. The park was dry and dusty and appeared unkempt. However, it really wasn't unkempt - just had that look because of weeds, drying out yards, etc. The cottonwood trees were 'shedding' and the ground was not only covered with dry dust but also white cotton. It often looked like it was snowing. Someone took us to our site and directed my husband into the back-in site we had (42). He did an excellent job. Utilities were fine and WiFi worked okay. We would go back but I really hope they get some rain. We camped at Riverview RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Lamar Sportsman's RV Center and Horse Motel, Lamar, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

At the time of this review the rating is 6.7. How this park has a 6.7 is beyond me. As we drove up the office door was locked and there are notes on the door about the rates and how to pay. Just go pick a spot. This park is gravel, sand and some grass. The sites are extremely short (pull through). Our 39' 5th wheel barely fit. We had to park the truck away, to the side, of the RV. There was dog poop everywhere, grass (what there was of it) needed mowing. Because it had been so hot and dry the gravel roads and sites were horribly dusty. There is a pool but there was no water in it. It was 100 degrees and winds blowing at 30 mph. For $42 it would have been nice to take a dip in the pool. The park is void of all hospitality, welcome or eye pleasing gardening or amenities. I can't think of a single redeeming factor. The price is obscene for what you get. I would not recommend this park and we will not go back. We camped at Lamar Sportsman's RV Center and Horse Motel in a Fifth Wheel.

Gunsmoke RV Park, Dodge City, Kansas

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

The sites are long and roomy. Plenty of room between sites and no problem with the length accommodating a 40' 5th wheel and a long bed dually without hanging over on the road. Wifi was good (not secure), utilities were fine and easy to reach. In fact, each site had 2 sewer hookups to choose from in case you parked forward in the site or toward the back of the site. Our only 2 complaints were the gravel and we think it is a little overpriced. The roads and the sites were gravel with grass in between. The gravel is large stone - ankle twisters. Really didn't like that stone..... We would go back. It's a nice, neat, clean park. We camped at Gunsmoke RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

McConnell AFB Famcamp (Military FamCamp), McConnell AFB, Kansas

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

Our check in process was a circle jerk. I don't want to take away from the rating of the park, but I have to mention our check in process. We went to the park before we went to Air Capital Inn because we missed it (Air Capital Inn) while driving in. I called them once we reached the park because there is no host or office. Rather than tell us where to park and go to Air Capital after we set up, they told us we had to pull the rig back through the base to check in. And, I would mention, the parking lot at the Air Capital Inn is NOT big enough for a big rig. Then they wanted the vaccination records for our indoor cat. Those records were under the bed and I needed to get the slide out to get the records. He actually hesitated to allow us to go set up and bring the records back to him. As it was, he gave me 30 minutes to get back to him. As for the park....it is very nice and small. There are 10 spaces and all pull throughs set at a good angle and utilities were convenient. They have 2 tornado shelters on either end of the park, a pretty little pond for catch and release, 2 pavilions for gatherings, and a very large park-like setting on the other side of the park with a walking/running track. There is plenty of room between each site. There is no wifi, but Verizon had a good signal for hotspot. It is also open for good satellite dish reception. My only complaint about the park is that, by the time we left after 7 days, the grass was close to knee high. That surprised me - especially for an AFB. I really have no complaints about the park - just the check in fiasco. We camped at McConnell AFB Famcamp (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.
