We've stayed here in prior years and always found this to be a good overnight stop in Great Falls. It definitely is a bit noisy but the traffic calms down as night approaches. They no longer have cable service as the cable company has discontinued analog services but there's no discount even so. We'll stay again if in the area.

We had booked this campground as an overnight stop on a vacation trip. We didn't expect anything fancy, but it turned out to be a great little place. The sites are well kept, the park is quiet and well maintained. The price was reasonable and included free coffee, cookies, and a local newspaper. I would definitely stay here again.

We generally don't stay in KOAs mainly because of their rates and their ridiculous policy of charging extra fees for kids. This is one exception to our rule. We've stayed here before and know that it's a well kept, quiet place. Fillmore really has nothing much to offer unless you're an OHV fan, but this is a nice place to stop overnight.

This is one of those strange little campgrounds in the middle of nowhere. Don't get me wrong, the sites surrounding the man-made lake are nice and there is ample shade from the trees on site. But in all reality, there's nothing much to do here otherwise. No hiking trails, no bike paths, just a run down smoke-filled old casino with a few slot machines and a restaurant that has seen much better days. Wi-Fi is painfully slow and constantly disconnects, the sites are wired for cable TV but they no longer have cable service available. Certainly if you're planning a stay in Pahrump it's one of the nicer places in town but I wouldn't go out of my way to come here again.

This is a top notch place with every amenity one could want. The common areas and pools are very well done. The sites are all level concrete pads with many having good amounts of shade from the mature trees. A bit on the pricey side but definitely a place that we'll return to.

This place has all the amenities, including pull-thru sites with full hookups, nice washrooms and great laundry room. They have a problem with sugar ants (which they make sure to inform you about on check-in). This is easily treated with Comet or Ajax around your utilities and tires. But I also noticed that there is a large amount of rotting fruit lying on the ground around the orange tress in each of the sites. Perhaps if they cleaned that up regularly the ants would not be so much of an issue.

This is a beautiful park with many miles of hiking rails that we enjoyed immensely. We were in the Gilmore loop but all of the loops were well laid out and each had their own attraction. The restroom building in our loop was amazing, certainly not what I expected for a state park. This place is peaceful and we will definitely return.

Very new place, trees have a lot of growing to do before they'll offer any shade. The biggest drawback here is the proximity to the interstate. The traffic noise is dreadful and it continues all night long. There are definitely quieter places to stay in the area.

This is an older campground but well layer out and peaceful. The sites are paved and fairly level. One complaint is that they have old style sewer hookups whereby there is an elbow installed at ground level which makes it almost impossible to install a standard sewer elbow, you need to have some sort of straight fitting which we don't carry. They need to upgrade the sewer system to more current standards. The sites are all paved and fairly level. Avoid site B17. The hiking trail to the logging museum starts here and you will have many people and pets travelling through your site. We will come back again if we're in the area.

This is an old KOA with pull-thru sites. As others have said it's away from the interstate so it is very quiet. The people are very friendly and helpful and they're doing a great job of maintaining the place. When we were here the entire campground was maybe 25% full, yet they put someone right next door to us using the old shared hookup idea that KOA came up with 25 years ago. I don't appreciate having someone 5 feet from my trailer in a campground that's primarily empty. For that reason we won't return.

We had a river view site and stayed for 2 nights. The sites are well laid out and there's enough room between them to make you feel comfortable. There was both 30 and 50 amp power as well as water and sewer. Cell coverage was spotty but they do have some Wi-Fi hot spots in the campground if you need connectivity. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed one night in the RV resort for a family wedding. We had a deluxe site which was long and level and the utilities were well placed. Not much space between sites but we've come to expect that at the 'resort' type RV parks. Access roads and office staff were good, but it's a bit on the pricey side ($65 CDN per night). We would stay again if in the area.

This is one of those places that has so much potential, but it's just being left to die. Although it's still advertised, they no longer offer cable TV at all. They do have Wi-Fi although it's only available near the main building and it's not that reliable. The owner is very personable and spends time checking on everyone quite regularly, but he should probably spend some time doing some basic landscaping and maybe rearranging the sites so that there's some semblance of order to the place. Right now it seems that he's placed a site wherever he could fit it among the trees and there are many seasonal sites that need clean-up. With a small capital investment and a bit of work this place could be beautiful, but there's probably not enough business to support the cash outlay. The pool was very nice and there was a good outdoor play area. It's a fine place for an overnight and we would stay again if traveling through the area.

This is a very nice setting with large trees and lots of grass. The sites., however, are short and un-level. They need to spend some money on grading and lengthening the sites as well as refurbishing some of the utilities, especially the sewer connections, which are not 90 degrees to the ground but in our site (32) were at a 45 degree angle, very odd. Reworking the road system so that the sites are less square to the roadways would be a great improvement. The owners are very nice and it's a fine place for an overnight stop. There's a few seasonal people here but the sites are well kept. Rate reflects the Good Sam discount.

As always, this is one of our favorites. The state has a new pricing policy in effect whereby the more popular campground sites cost more money and they also charge more for out-of-state residents, so it's becoming a bit pricey for us to stay here for only getting partial hookups. The fire danger was very high so no fires were permitted but we still enjoyed sitting out and watching the osprey fish in the river and teach their young to fly. This is a beautiful, peaceful place that we will always keep in our list of stopovers.
