Thousand Lakes RV Park, Torrey, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed here 5 nights, and park staff were very accommodating to a few schedule changes I had to make a few days before arrival. In addition, upon arrival in our site, we found the 50A receptacle in the power pedestal was installed upside down, making it impossible to use our EMS device. Park staff took care of it and fixed within an hour. Then, that first night, our EMS tripped off due to voltage spike (140V), and after I notified staff the next morning, they worked on the pedestal and corrected some issues, which was also impressive. Park offers great views of nearby towering red rock cliffs and mesas. Roads and sites are gravel, varying degrees of levelness from what I observed, and adequately maneuverable. Average amount of spacing between sites, and in our row, sites were arranged to have you park your vehicle next to RV. Park offers a great on-site BBQ dining facility that we ate at one night; it was excellent, but a tad pricey. They have a great camp store, especially their local souvenirs and crafts section, which was varied, well-stocked, and surprisingly reasonably priced. Bathroom and shower facilities were rustic but clean; one drawback for tall people is the toilet stalls are extremely tight, requiring you to jam your knees against the door, rather uncomfortably. Be prepared for howling winds every night here! We camped at Thousand Lakes RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Do try their BBQ...but can skip the morning muffins. While there is small grocery store in Torrey, it is sparsely stocked and high priced, as one might expect. Nearest "normal" grocery store is 20 minutes away in Loa. Diablo Café short way up road from campground is real gourmet dining experience, highly recommended!

Golden Spike RV Park, Brigham City, Utah

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

Nice, smaller campground with nice, friendly staff and owners. Among the surprising perks were free heirloom tomatoes and other veggies from owner's gardens, and a free daily local newspaper. Cable TV was probably the best we have had in about 25 campgrounds, and Verizon signal is good...but their WiFi was consistently useless to us at all times of day. Campground is convenient to access from I-15, but right next to heavily trafficked Rt. 91, so gets a lot of traffic noise. May need extra length of sewer hose to reach, if RV is positioned at one end to allow vehicle to fit into site. Paved roads with mostly gravel sites and a few concrete pads. Sites have decent spacing between them, but some not totally level. Nice, well maintained grounds, bathroom, and shower facility, and camp store was modestly stocked, and included large lending library of books and DVDs. A staff member even sorted the books by genre and featured "staff picks", a nice seldom-seen touch. Barely had room to fit RV and truck into site, but there was adequate, convenient parking on adjacent dead-end street that runs alongside campground. Would definitely stay again if in area. We camped at Golden Spike RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Don't miss nearby Bear River National Wildlife Refuge, and further south, Antelope Island State Park ($10 entrance fee) is a good day trip for auto touring, hiking, or biking. Golden Spike historic site is a bit of a drive, probably best for real history buffs and railfans, but as a bonus, you may get to see a test rocket firing at nearby ATK site like we did, rather unexpectedly.

Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park, West Yellowstone, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $78.00
Overall Rating:

Wonderful, nicely maintained campground as about as close to west entrance of Yellowstone that you can get. Of course, you pay for the amenities and location, so on the pricey side. Smooth efficient check in, paved streets and level gravel sites (though I saw a few rigs using blocking), and adequate maneuverability. Sites fairly close to each other, but not terribly so. Site barely fit my RV and truck, and they warn that they will assess a $50 fee if your rig or truck stick out into the roadway. Another somewhat irksome thing was that they only give free Wi-Fi access to 2 devices per site, and charge for any additional ones. I can see that as a way to try to incentivize folks from not overloading their bandwidth, but for a week-long stay, choosing between phones and tablets to get on Wi-Fi was annoying. On other hand, must have been effective, since their Wi-Fi did work well. Cable TV provided, but ours was often snowy to point of being unusable. Verizon signal good. Great, clean bathroom, shower, and laundry facilities, and a well-stocked camp store. They had a trail that could be used for dog walking very close to our site that led right into the adjacent National Forest, which was nice. Despite the few drawbacks and high cost, would probably stay again next time we come back to Yellowstone. We camped at Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Jim & Mary's RV Park, Missoula, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

One of nicest parks out of the 20 or so we have stayed in this year. Beautiful, well maintained grounds full of decorative flower plantings...we even had a plum tree full of delicious ripe plums right next to our site! (This did have drawback of attracting bees during day, and judging by smell...skunks at night.) Paved roads, level gravel sites, good site spacing, and easy to maneuver roads. Great, clean bathroom and shower facilities. Very friendly office staff. Cable TV, although ours was often snowy. Wifi was good, as was Verizon coverage. There is an active train line on hill above campground, and it is not too far off major highway, so had some noise issues, which we found quite tolerable. Would definitely stay here again if in area.

Mountain Meadow RV Park and Cabins, Hungry Horse, Montana

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

My price reflects a decent Passport America discount, which is big reason I chose this park. Great park a reasonable distance from Glacier west entrance. Yes, it is hilly, with some sloping somewhat sharp turns as many have noted, but plan ahead and try to get a site that is suitable for your length. I paid $5 extra to reserve my specific site, and it was worth it to me. The roads and turns can definitely be challenging for bigger rigs (mine was a 34 foot fifth wheel.) Saw two big Class A's backing down hill behind us in order to get to a point where they could safely make a turn down towards the exit. Roads and sites are all gravel, fairly level in my row (but not so everywhere!), and well maintained - they periodically went around with water tank spraying to reduce dust. Short entrance driveway in some rough shape though, and rather bumpy. Nice trees through park, some sites private, some close together. WiFi was spotty and inadequate when park was full. Verizon good. No cable, and just a couple channels OTA. There is some road noise from busy Rt. 2, and BNSF train whistles. Very nice bathroom/shower and laundry facility. They have kayak rentals, but no propane. As bonus, there was a free concert one night we were there, with a decent folk/country oriented duo, apparently friends of the park owners. I would definitely stay again. We camped at Mountain Meadow RV Park and Cabins in a Fifth Wheel.

St. Mary / East Glacier KOA, St Mary, Montana

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $71.00
Overall Rating:

Expensive park due to prime location, mountain views, and extra amenities like pool and hot tub, trails, etc. Has store, laundry, on-site food (wildly over-priced) even with pizza delivery to your site. Roads and sites were gravel, mostly level although I saw some blocking used, so rather site-dependent. Site we were assigned just barely fit us (34 ft fifth wheel) and truck, but there were others that accommodated bigger units, so you get placed accordingly. Maneuverability was adequate. Very nice, well maintained private bathroom/shower facilities, although a little bit more capacity for size of park would be good, as there were occasionally lines to use them. No cable, and no over the air TV reception or even radio stations! Park was pretty quiet the 11 days we were there, despite being fairly full most nights. Had a brief power outage in park one night, no apparent reason according to park staff. In our row, sewer connections were badly placed at far rear of sites, requiring 20-25 feet of hose minimum. Overall, park is a bit overpriced for the poor WiFi and lack of cable TV, despite the prime location close to Glacier east entrance. They really need to invest in WiFi upgrade and stop joking about how bad it is with customers at check-in, especially since there is no cable. We camped at St. Mary / East Glacier KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

As of our stay, diesel is 40-cents cheaper in Browning than in St. Marys., and there is nice, reasonably-priced IGA supermarket there too, if you are willing to make drive. Take Route 464 if towing mid-to big size rigs coming from Browning as noted on park web page.

Dick's RV Park, Great Falls, Montana

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

Campground is located in a dicey looking area, and wedged in between highway, Sun River, and an abandon railroad line next to some industries and businesses. No fence or other security, so people from surroundings can walk right in. It has a fair number of year round and seasonal campers, and the overall visual impression of campground is dirty, depressing looking. The "storage area" looks like a junk yard in the making. The roads and sites were all gravel, wide, easy to navigate. CG is on very slight incline on side we were in, so some minor blocking was required on one side to get level. Spacing between sites was average, with enough room to put out awnings. Wifi was fairly worthless at all times, but Verizon signal was very good, being in town. No cable TV, despite the coax jacks at sites. OTA TV was decent. Water pressure is high, around 75 psi, but this is boldly stated on the check-in paperwork. Other than facilities in office building, there was a separate bathroom shower facility in a raised permanent trailer, which were clean and nice enough. Did not use laundry. Might stay again if passing through area, as I seem to recall there were not many other better choices, but it is not a destination CG for sure. We camped at Dick's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Prewett Creek RV Park & Campground, Cascade, Montana

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

Location, location, location! Perfect place to stay a week and just relax! Very small campground with very nice and friendly owners. Gravel roads and sites, easy to maneuver, and fairly level, but no shade at all. Campground is nestled in a canyon between mountains, with less than 5 minute walk to a fishing and boating access on the scenic stretch of Missouri River than runs through here...and of course a Lewis and Clark Expedition connection. Have daily visits from mule deer, occasional visits from bighorn sheep, and can almost always see osprey and bald eagles flying along river in canyon. Easy access from I-15, yet totally secluded from its sight and noise. No cable, and we could not get any OTA TV reception. One of best WiFi CG's we have had, which was good, because Verizon service is very spotty. Our EMS flicked power off and on one night, not quite sure of cause. No camp store, but there is a separately owned little store right in front of camp and, of course for this region, that store offers lots of fly fishing gear. Small bathroom/shower facility - one room each for men and women, which rarely was an issue due to limited number of sites. However, bathroom was the Achilles Heel of campground - no ventilation, very hot in day, and a bit dingy. Overall well maintained though; they fixed a problem with door lock and latch while we were there. Laundry facility nice, with large machines. Would definitely stay here again if in area. We camped at Prewett Creek RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

If coming up I-15 North, can use Exit 244 "Canyon Access" if you can clear the 13'-9" limit on a historic bridge you need to take; otherwise, use Exit 247 Hardy. Store in front of campground rents kayaks, canoes, and drift boats for fishing, but you need to be patient with the little Mom and Pop operation. We used them to shuttle a canoe down river to Craig, and it was a 4 hour paddle back to take-out at camp, without fishing. Several places in Craig provide alternatives.

Lincoln Road RV Park, Helena, Montana

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed here a week while exploring area. Located about 10-15 minutes north of downtown, easy access from I-15. Nice friendly staff that took time to point out area attractions on map they provided. Gravel roads and sites, easy maneuverability, and level sites. Nice grass and concrete patio area, with adequate spacing between units, and while there are small trees between most sites, there is essentially no shade. There are handful of seasonals, all along one row. Nice bathroom/shower and laundry facility, everything well maintained, however, there is no provision for privacy in the shower area, as both men's and women's side have an open, common changing area. WiFi was awful, and staff knew it and joked about it, recommending the little coffee/pizza place nearby... although we did not think it that funny. Verizon signal very good though. We camped at Lincoln Road RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fairmont RV Park, Anaconda, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed here a week to explore the Anaconda-Butte area. A bit overpriced for the amenities, but not a lot of great alternatives with FHU in extended area. We were placed in a new area of CG, which was pretty stark - no trees, no shade, not even a picnic table! No cable TV either, and OTA was minimal, sometimes 3 channels, sometimes none. Verizon was adequate, but oddly dropped out a couple times for no reason. WiFi was pretty poor, had to go to camp office area to connect. Charge extra $2/night for a dog, which was irksome - only CG in 30 stops on trip that does that. They ran sprinklers at night between sites in new section, without anything said to us at check-in. Our neighbors had their stuff soaked one night. Roads and sites were gravel, very easy to maneuver in our area, and had decent spacing in the new area. Great views of surrounding mountains and hills in campground depending on how you are situated and if you have neighbors, Bathroom/shower house clean and well maintained...but showers made for very short people! From peeking in the door, they have nice building that could serve as common room, with tables, chairs, sofas, etc.... but apparently the new owners have never opened it to camper use. Despite the negative aspects, would probably stay here again if in area. We camped at Fairmont RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Explore Butte and don't miss the World Museum of Mining tour and the mining equipment exhibit - fascinating, even if a bit run-down. Smelter City Brewing in Anaconda is great space to hang out, and there are a few good breweries in Butte. Gotta' see the Big Stack in Anaconda, and the hiking trail that goes up ridge above golf course is short and offers great views.

Sunrise Campground, Bozeman, Montana

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

Stayed 3 nights in this family-run campground. Owners were very friendly, nice folks. Roads and sites are gravel, good maneuverability, and fairly level. Bathroom/showers were clean, but a bit inadequate for the number of sites they have in campground, as there were occasionally waiting lines. They have units park in alternating directions, so that utility hookups are shared...and your "living space" picnic table area too, unfortunately. In our case, adjacent RV was sufficiently pulled forward so that there was no incursion, but imagine there can be most times. Either way, units are fairly close together. Some sites in center of campground have shade, but we did not. Fair number of seasonals scattered randomly in park as well. CG is squeezed between interstate and another highway, with an active main rail line close by as well, so the road noise was constant, and the train whistles frequent...took pity on the tent campers that they placed right against the interstate, can't imagine how they slept. Office has large collection of DVD's to loan for free, a little lending library, and does accept and hold mail for campers. Not much of a dog walk area, and they put tent and some RV campers in the designated area, so we had to improvise. All things considered, CG is conveniently located to Bozeman area attractions, and we would possibly stay again if in area. We camped at Sunrise Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Billings KOA, Billings, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $86.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed here 5 nights, in a "deluxe pull thru patio" site. Feel it is extremely overpriced, but was only site available at a decently rated campground in area when I made reservations. Not only is the site rate over-inflated, but to add insult to injury, everything else in campground is similarly overpriced, from the $5 per round mini-golf (seriously?!? After already paying premium to stay here?), to the little BBQ and breakfast place on site, to everything in their well-equipped camp store. Has all the amenities you would expect from a Holiday KOA- pool (free!), laundry, very nice bathrooms, showers, and laundry, playground, pet area, cable TV (which was snowy on several channels). Roads and sites are packed gravel, easy to navigate for us, and level. The deluxe patio site was nice, and came complete with swing, several chairs, table, and fire pit. Adequate spacing in the premium patio area, but a little tighter elsewhere. We had very good shade. Place is well maintained. Had barely enough room to squeeze truck in front of RV. Very good WiFi, and Verizon was strength was excellent. Despite all the niceties, I would only stay again if nothing else in area at those prices. We camped at Billings KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

7th Ranch RV Camp, Garryowen, Montana

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

Very nice campground on a terraced hillside with good views of the endless rolling plains and hills...if your site and neighbors are situated "just right". Short dusty road approach. Roads and sites all packed gravel and all looked to be fairly level. While you could see I-90 and train tracks distantly over the fields, the noise from them was a non-issue, and the distant train whistles were actually kind of cool to listen to for a rail fan. No cable, and only got 4 channels of OTA... so go out and sit in a spot with a view of rolling grassland hills if you can! Verizon was good, and campground WiFi signal good except a bit weak out on fringes where we were. Friendly staff guide you right to site and line you up for hook ups. (When an afternoon storm threatened, staff went around to RV's with awnings out and knocked and advised them to retract them!) Bathroom, shower-laundry facility really excellent and clean, with piped in cowboy music! (Although, the privacy dividers between showers and stalls must have been made with short cowboys and cowgirls in mind, just sayin'...) Overall campground well maintained. Nice place to just relax and chill out... which is good, as there are not a whole lot of activities in area once you've done the Little Bighorn Battlefield visit. Nice dirt road of ranch to walk dogs on, out of one corner of campground. We camped at 7th Ranch RV Camp in a Fifth Wheel.

Tee Pee Campground, Rapid City, South Dakota

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

Stayed here 2 weeks, and while at first we were put off by the traffic noise from Rt 16, in time it become just background and was not too bad. Economical too for the area. Power was good and stable, water pressure adequate. No cable TV, but OTA had decent selection. Verizon signal very good. Wifi was iffy, and of course better when campground was emptier. Roads and sites are all gravel and seemed fairly level, with good maneuverability and decent spacing. Bath/shower house a bit dank but serviceable, although we did not use their showers. Owner has For Sale sign in front of campground, and is a 1-man show, but he is still diligent about maintaining the place and provides personalized service. Little camp store does not have much, but does have nice selection of DVD's and books to borrow. Wild rabbits all over are fairly entertaining...especially for the dog! They do accept and hold mail for campers. While I would look for more scenic campgrounds in and around Custer State Park on a return trip, I would not rule out staying here again, as it was good base of operations for our many day trips in area. We camped at Tee Pee Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

So much outdoor stuff to do in Black Hills and extended area, from Badlands to Devil's Tower, 2 weeks was just about right for us. Great craft brewing scene in region too, pick up a guide. 99-cent pancake breakfast at Ft. Hays , in walking distance, not bad deal. Stop at Black Hills National Forest headquarters practically right next door for trail guides and maps. Stratobowl Trail just down Rt 16 is pretty good and leads to interesting bit of aviation history- who knew?!?

Famil-E-Fun Campground and RV Park, Mitchell, South Dakota

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

Wonderful little family-owned and operated campground just a few miles west of Mitchell, SD and very convenient and easy on/off of I-90. Worth staying a few miles out of the town proper, and the interstate noise was barely audible for 4 nights. The owners are very friendly, and leads each person to their site personally. Interior roads and sites are packed gravel, with level sites, lots of mature shade trees, easy maneuverability... and a fair number of entertaining wild rabbits frolicking in the evening. There is some evidence that roads and sites can be underwater a bit after really heavy prolonged rains. Clean and well-maintained grounds and bathroom/shower/laundry facility. Water pressure just a bit on the low side. Unfortunately, pool is out of commission this year. Only wifi is at the office/store, but it worked well. Verizon coverage is excellent. Gem of a park, would definitely stay here again. We camped at Famil-E-Fun Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
