This campground holds largely seasonals, but does have a few sites available for overnighters. We had to make a last-minute change to our travel plans, so we called ahead to this campground by only a few minutes, and ended up being the only ones coming in that night for a FHU site. Sites are grass and dirt, and many are well shaded by large trees. Most are not all that level, and ours required a bit of leveling. We were able to stay hitched up during our stay. Bathrooms were a bit strange - shower curtains instead of doors on the toilet stalls, and no privacy for changing in the shower area (though the showers themselves have shower curtains.) Pleasant management, and they were always busy sprinkling, mowing, etc. around the grounds, which are extensive. Cellphone service (Verizon) and wireless surprisingly decent, considering this place is down in a valley. Very quiet at night, but the campground was not busy when we were there. There was a large group having some kind of party (bouncy houses, large tents, etc.) in the day-use area nearby, but we didn't hear much noise anyway.

Beautiful small campground (only about 20 sites) in pine woods above the shore of a long, narrow lake in the mountains. The main part of the campground forms a circle around the newer bathhouse. (With individual shower rooms - nice!) About half the sites have electric hookups, including some of the lakeside sites. There is a camp host in residence. LOTS of road noise from Rte 83, especially in the sites nearest the road - the main drawback. Obstacles alongside the campground road make backing longer rigs into sites a challenge. (There is one pullthru site, on the road side.) Two small lakeside sites suitable for very small rigs are separate from the rest of the campground. Electric posts seemed relatively new. Views of the lake are beautiful, and there are several informal paths down to the somewhat marshy shoreline. A separate part of the state park offers a boat launch, swimming beach & picnic area; there is a trail between it and the campground. Showers, firewood & ice available - bring lots of quarters!!

Wooded campground on rolling terrain by a lake, very popular with boaters (not so much for fishing - lots of noisy, fast boats!) Many sites close together, little privacy, but shade from the pine woods; one loop has electric sites (20/30/50 amp) - not many can fit rigs larger than 25'. This park is 3 miles off the main road, on a packed-dirt road (may be slippery in wet weather); road noise is minimal, especially at night. It's a busy place & seems popular with Missoula-area residents on weekends. There is a camp host in residence, and bathhouse facilities seemed pretty clean despite heavy use. The pit toilet we used was very clean & not smelly. Beautiful location.

Our pullthrough site was small, typical of most private campgrounds, but tidy. Interesting picnic table - it looked like half a one, but apparently was designed that way. The campground is some distance from the interstate so road noise is not an issue; trains run right behind the campground but no whistles close by - again, not an issue since we ran our fan at night. Owners are friendly and love to ply their customers with tourist information! It's a real mom & pop operation, and they are hands-on; the entire place looks well maintained. Pretty little creek flowing through the grounds gives it atmosphere and even some unusual birds (a kingfisher, in Montana farm country!) Utilities worked fine. The bathrooms were very clean but toilets & showers have shower curtains instead of doors for privacy - a little off-putting - and the changing area in the showers is very small. We would definitely stay again if in this area.

Wonderfully shady, especially in certain areas of the park. For an urban park, this is an excellent choice - centrally located, close to the interstates so it's easy to get to (and to get around to the suburbs), and right across the street from the Trax public transportation. The folks in the office are friendly & helpful, and the breakfasts on summer weekends are a bonus. Our one complaint is that our electric cord came unplugged during a very hot day, when we were away for the day visiting relatives, and we suspect it may have been due to the outlet not being a good tight fit anymore (probably from heavy use). Otherwise, a very pleasant stay. We have been here multiple times and like to use it as a base camp when visiting the area; we will return (and be more careful about the power hookup!)

Although very open to sun & wind, this campground was very enjoyable. Sites are huge, and the surrounding scenery is beautiful. Nice stone firepits at each campsite. We backed up to the Salmon River and enjoyed watching and listening to birds (including osprey, bald eagle and yellow warbler) and the campground owners' horses. We loved the peace & quiet, as traffic is very light at night, and not all that heavy during the day. This campground is really "the middle of nowhere," and our cellphones did not work here (Verizon), but that was ok. Close by are ghost towns, mining history, tiny town museums, the Sawtooth Range (not visible from the campground but within 1/2 hour drive), and of course river-focused activities. Rafting is especially popular in spring; once the river calms down, fishing becomes big as well. Owners friendly and helpful; recommended places to eat within 15-20 minutes' drive too. The only drawback was the distance the bathrooms/showers were from the campsites (this place also has cabins to rent).

We spent several nights here while exploring the general area, staying in one of 2 deluxe patio pullthru sites. Lots of space in our "front yard", and a delightful bench swing to boot. Good points: friendly, helpful owners; very clean facilities; good sightseeing info that the owners have put together; easy to find. Not so good: though it worked out fine, front row pullthru sites lead directly on to a city street, with only a chain (& no lock) in front. Easy enough to get out of, though could be a bit tight for longer rigs, but it didn't feel as secure as most campgrounds do. I guess Greybull isn't a high crime district. RR noise evident, from several blocks away, but road noise definitely not a problem. Good base camp for the Bighorn basin, and looked quite a bit better than the other campground here.

Spent 2 nights here in a back-in, electric-water site along the river; we asked for shade and got a site in a little grove of tall cottonwoods, so we had shade galore! Beautiful view from our site too, especially toward the back (river & mountains). Owner & campground workers very friendly and pleasant, and they encourage socializing! Our site was on grass and was very uneven, but we have leveling pads and managed just fine. Utilities at the front of the site if you're backing in, so extra hoses and extension cords may be necessary. Bathrooms are very clean and of an unusual design. Campground is quite a ways from shopping, which is 16 miles down the road in Salmon. Owner has lots of activities and points of interest in the area to recommend, if you're at a loss for what to do.

We spent one night here and for a private campground found it lovely, shady and welcoming. Our site was larger than many, which after camping in state parks for a week made us more comfortable. Very nice folks running the place, and the bathrooms and laundry were indeed sparkling clean. Popular place; the campground was almost completely full overnight, on a Tuesday. Despite some road noise from US93, it was pretty quiet overall. Would definitely stay again when in the area.

Beautiful park! We were in Gilmore campground, one of 4 individual campgrounds in this large, historic park; this campground's 2 loops are wooded with wide, paved sites (pull-thru and back-in) and electric-water hookups. Waldron campground, the largest, has more open sites and more companion sites, which are grouped close together. Whitetail and Snowberry are deeply wooded with tight, winding roads and smaller campsites, well suited for tents, popups, truck campers and small trailers. Bathhouses varied; those in Gilmore were quite new, with individual, unisex shower rooms. Multiple camp hosts kept them quite clean. Lots of history - the Navy had a big training base here in WWII - nature and beautiful scenery here, as the park is on the shore of Lake Pend d'Oreille. Unfortunately, the smoke from many wildfires limited our enjoyment of the latter. We enjoyed seeing a large flock of wild turkeys, deer, squirrels, and various birds in this park. Quiet, as most of the campgrounds are away from any main roads; a state route does run through the middle of the park but has little nighttime traffic. Would love to come back again; we wish it weren't quite so far away from home.

Very park-like, i.e. grassy areas with trees, but not forested. Many sites well shaded; some back up to Snake River. Campground host for each loop. A variety of hookup choices available. We were there during the week and the campground was probably 1/2 full, or a little more, the entire time. Boaters & bicyclists will enjoy this park, which is long & narrow on the riverbank. Quiet at night, as it's not on a major road, but there is road noise during the day from across the river in Clarkston, Washington, and there is noise from motorboats of all sizes on the river. Nice visitors center in the park dedicated to the Lewis & Clark expedition. We would definitely stay again when in this area.

Our first time here, and it was a weekend; the campground was packed - and no wonder. This park is just beautiful! Huge ponderosa and other pines, some undergrowth, and sites are large and placed well, especially the back-ins, among all of these. A family of deer hung out in/near our loop and we saw them daily. The surprise: many campers left midday Sunday, and within an hour or two, all their sites were filled once again! Reservations highly recommended. Sites with hookups have both electric and water; there are some full-hookup sites in a separate loop farther from the lake, but still well shaded. Bathhouses are newer, kept very clean by campground hosts; showers clean and effective. This is a perfect park for bicycles, with lots of beautiful bike trails. We definitely want to come again.

We spent a night here on our way home from a long trip. We have stayed in previous years and it is evident the new owners are putting a lot into the place. Our site was wider than we have come to expect in KOAs, and the utilities worked well. Love the location - on the edge of town and not right next to a major road, so it's quiet and peaceful. One might be awakened in the morning by a horse whinny from a neighboring farm. Pool and play area for the kids, and the waffle breakfast and ice cream social were big hits with me. Will definitely come again; this campground makes a great base for visiting Craters of the Moon, Mt. Borah, and the surrounding area.

There are a lot of campgrounds in and near Moab, but this was almost the shadiest - a definite benefit! Newer sites have no trees, but most have tall cottonwoods & decent shade much of the day. Sites are terraced, and the level areas are long enough for a motorhome or trailer, but not for the tow vehicle as well; a place is provided behind and to the side of your rig to park the smaller vehicle. Not terribly wide between sites, but enough grassy area for a picnic table without your neighbor's sewer connection being right by the table. Nice, pleasant folks in the office. Some long-term/permanent campers here but rules keep them neat & tidy. Nice view of red sandstone bluff behind the campground; convenient to the main road (US191), and sites in the first 2 rows of the campground may have some bothersome road noise. In the 3rd row, we did not find that a problem. Far enough out of town to have a quiet, country-like atmosphere. We enjoyed our stay here, and were we to visit Moab again, we would definitely consider this campground one of our top choices.

We stayed 3 nights for our first-ever visit to Monument Valley. There is another campground in the tribal park, but there is no shade at all (or hookups); Goulding's has at least minimal shade and of course has hookups. Sites numbered in the 30s have more space than those with the low numbers, and some of the sites in the 20s and 30s have pretty nice shade. There are a few sites that park in a line (i.e. one RV in front of another) - good for folks traveling together. There have been a few comments about sites not being level; ours wasn't completely so, but a couple blocks under the wheels sufficed just fine. The staff running the place were invariably pleasant and helpful. Yes, the price is a bit high, but the scenery can't be beat! We really enjoyed the tour of the valley and the convenience of being picked up right at the campground. We would definitely camp here again.
