We've stayed here before, and it hasn't changed much if at all. Same poor entry signage. If you're coming from I-65, go east on hwy 82, stay in the right lane and look for their sign, it comes up quick! Park is fine for an overnight stop: good electricity, water needs to be filtered, flat sites, and easy in/out.

Date of Stay:

Don't plan on stopping here! It's closed - gone!

What a pleasant surprise out in the country! An easy park to navigate once you get there, but better directional signage on the way in would be nice. Sites are well groomed gravel and quite large. Ours was pitched a little too much to the front, but still got leveled OK. Other sites appeared to be more level. Just an overnight stop, but the restaurant looked inviting - maybe next time! Very pleasant front desk person.

Passport America price for first two nights. Park is open and flat, with ultra-long pull-through sites. Only drawback for us is the DUST! The roads give up a storm cloud of talcum-powder dust no matter how slow you go. Location out in the Iowa farm country is really nice, and we plan to explore the Amana colonies for a few days.

Typical of RV parks in this part of the country, it was basically a gravel lot with pea stone to help keep the dust down. Easy in/out access. Sites were level, and hookups were fine. Nice enclosed dog runs, one for big guys, and one for the little critters. Some train noise in the distance, but we didn't find it bothersome. Worked well as an overnight stop for us.

Not many places to stop for the night on I80, so this was a pleasant surprise! Easy access, but very little highway noise. Shady sites if you want, or open sites for rooftop satellite. Very accomodating owner. Well worth the price.

Date of Stay:

Really the only choice in this area. Paved roads and sites, a little tight for 40 footer towing, but certainly doable. We had a 30 and full hookup site, voltage good, rooftop satellite OK. Park very busy - not many sites available. It's always a plus when park owners care about the overall appearance of their park, but it never fails to amaze me when they care more about their grass than they do the customer's RV! Sprinklers on every night (California drought?) and not adjusted very well so count on getting your RV sprayed!

We stayed here 15 years ago and it was worn and tired then - it's about the same now except that there seemed to be a lot of permanent dwellers here now. Too bad, because it's a great location right on the harbor. Sites are "old style" (very close together - maybe 20 feet between pedestals) and 30a. Water bibs are in some cases right on the ground - not exactly sanitary (bring the bleach spray bottle!) Was told by the Office lady that the park will be closed in Oct 2014 for several months while they renovate. I hope they do a complete job of it (utilities, etc) because it is past due.

Small park right in town (across the street from an impressive grocery/clothing/hardware store). We had a level grass pull-in site where we faced some tall shrubs that blocked the view of a line of old single-wides (shared the entry street with the park). No cable, but no problem getting satellite. Lots of RVs coming and going - probably would be wise to get a reservation during summer season. We'd stop here again for a few days.

Chose this park based on favorable tone of previous reviews. Think they must have been written by employees! Overall, the park needs a major upgrade: sites are rough grass/dirt and the first site they put us on had no 50 amp hookup. Turns out the park is a membership operation where the owners are not present. Long walk to the beach. Sorry to say, but the quality did not come close to the price. We would look elsewhere if returning to this area.

Date of Stay:

Located in an industrial area, the ride in makes you wonder, but once in the park it's quite nice. Substantial landscaping at the sites (in fact, overtaking some of the sites), paved roads, borders a river with direct access to an off-leash paved public walking path. Many long term campers and early work trucks. Not the friendliest front office reception, but efficient. Park is pretty full - reservations needed. We're passing time here waiting to join a caravan into Calgary Stampede - probably won't have a need to come back.

     

Butte KOA

Butte, Montana

Date of Stay:

Convenient overnight park near an exit but not overly noisy. New owner just took over operation and appears to be doing some renovating. Young lady in the office was very pleasant and efficient, older escort person missed the customer service training. It's an older campground, and the sites are quite close. Several sites had trees that needed trimming and we witnessed RVs scraping past them. Water pressure was pretty bad at times, and OK at other times. Walk through the back of the park to the adjacent Butte Visitors Center (of course, anyone out there can walk right into the campground as well). Maybe the new owner will erect a security fence? Some older campers look like they've been there for years. But all things considered it served our purpose for an overnight stop, but I'd hope the new owner will do some renovating and updating.

Date of Stay:

As noted in other reviews, the park is neat and clean, paved roads, more space between most sites than we've come to expect nowadays, and reasonable rate. Although trees are nice, they become a negative when the owners don't trim them up to clear today's RV's. This park needs a serious trimming! Maneuvering through the park and into the site is doable, but you will brush some of the tree limbs. Cable TV is snowy, and rooftop satellite is not possible given the heavy tree growth. Doubt that I'd stay here again.

Date of Stay:

A beautiful RV park right in W Yellowstone. Staff was extremely helpful in finding us a site on short notice. A deluxe park with paved roads, easy access, and much nicer than some of the older dirt parks in the area. If you plan to stay here during the busy Summer season, call ahead for reservations. You won't be disappointed!

Date of Stay:

We found this KOA had lots of amenities and features for a family vacation destination, but felt that the site price was excessive since they also charge for many of the amenities if you choose to use them. For $75 we expect a seriously deluxe campsite, and this park doesn't come close. Also, if you need Verizon access, don't plan on it - this park is 6+ miles west of W Yellowstone - we were barely able to make phone calls, and you can forget about any data transfer! On the plus side, there was no hesitation when we asked for a refund for unused days (we moved into town to a nicer park and less $$). There are several really nice choices in town, but this time of year you need to plan ahead.
