Date of Stay:

Deep & shaded sites w/ 50A or 30A electric, picnic table & fire ring. Water spigots located throughout the park. Dump about 1 mile away. $8 w/ Golden Age. ($2 more for lakefront premium site.) Clean restrooms & showers. Sites are reservable Memorial Day through Labor Day, then first-come, first-serve. Park open mid-April thru at least October. Easy access to fishing & visitor center.

Date of Stay:

Restroom was dirty! Access to many sites is not easy, particularly in a large rig. Be careful not to park in one of the sites the host said are "Sand Traps", that is, if you can find the host. 30A electric and well water with lots of minerals. Pets are allowed to roam so watch where you step. Dump available, but bring your own hose. It was quiet and shaded. $10 rate was with Passport America.

Date of Stay:

Great campground to use as a base to see all the Black Hills attractions! Lots of wildlife in the area! Campground is clean (with restrooms with flush toilets), quiet, and easily accessible via paved roads. Campground is 1 mile from the Wind Cave National Park visitor center. Nightly ranger programs throughout the summer. At least 20 sites will accommodate big rigs. (One site is 75' long!) Mostly pull-throughs; some back-ins. No electric, sewer or showers. Those services are available in nearby towns. Sites are first come, first served, but the host says the campground has never been full. $12 per night; 1/2 price for holders of Federal Senior (Golden Age) or Disability (Golden Access) passes. Campground is open all year; during winter the water is turned off, but there are pit toilets and fee is $6 (1/2 price for pass holders listed above.)

Date of Stay:

Wide open spaces, with afternoon winds. Regular rate is $32 (we stayed at AOR rate.) Lots of washers & dryers for low cost. Good wi-fi. Nearest town with services is Pinedale - 7 miles north. OK base to explore area.

Date of Stay:

This park is "tired" - grass/weeds needed mowing; picnic tables were wobbly and in dire need of paint. Most of the back-in sites won't handle rigs over 32'; pull-through sites are $3 more. The park is adjacent to the Fairmont Resort, which has the hot springs pools, golf course, and mini-golf (all for an additional fees.) Access to the resort facilities is about the only reason to stay at the Fairmont RV Park.

Date of Stay:

All pull-through sites. 50A costs a little more. Laundry, small clubhouse & clean restrooms. Nice staff held ice cream socials a couple of times a week. Only drawback - Wi-Fi signal was marginal. Hot Springs pool is less than a mile away in town. Several restaurants and a small (and pricey) grocery in town. On the edge of the National Forest, there's access to fishing, hiking, and scenic drives. Also several museums nearby.

Date of Stay:

This summer's management is making the effort to clean things up and restore this park's high ratings. There are 3 sections - one with grass and trees; the Arizona section, with rocks, a few trees, and long, wide and level sites; the Wilderness section, camping along the river with trees and brush (primitive). Nice pool (though it is not Olympic-sized, as advertised). Big adult recreation room with books, puzzles, big-screen TV, movies and pool table. Kids game area and playground. Big, clean laundry room. Wi-Fi was not working in our section of the park most of the 2 weeks we were there. No resort sponsored activities. Lots of traffic noise, as campground is adjacent to the main highway. Plenty to see and do in the immediate area, and within a couple hours drive.

Date of Stay:

Owners are very nice. The park is neat and clean. Grass at most sites. Excellent Wi-Fi. No TV reception via antenna and no cable TV option, but good satellite reception. Park is close to everything in town. There are several excellent historical museums. Very nice paved walkway along the Missouri River. City swimming pool is open in the summer. Rafting, canoeing and fishing is only 5 blocks from the park. Convenient to Great Falls, Havre, and mountains to the south. We will stay here again when we pass through this area.

We phoned for reservations after reviewing their website. We specifically requested 30A with water for 4 nights and were confirmed, but given the 15A rate! When we questioned the rate posted on the website, we were told that was last year's webpage and they have not raised their rates. We again confirmed 30A at $29/night. That was confirmed. After we arrived, and paid (cash only: no refunds) we were given a map (same as that on the website) with color coding for the 30A site we had reserved. When we got to the site, their was only 15A service. Returning to the office to find out where the 30A sites were, we were told that the map was wrong and there were no 30A sites available. But we could get a full-service site (which we did not want nor need) for only $7 more per night! Their office staff is certainly friendly, but I am not fond of "bait and switch." Had we been told that there were no 30A sites available for 4 nights when we called for reservations, we would have selected a different campground. Be warned, the map is wrong! I doubt if we will ever stay here again, due to the poor reservation practices.

Date of Stay:

Alberta Campground Guide shows a "dry-camp" rate which we requested. They said all sites have electricity (if you have a long enough extension cord!) and charged that (higher) rate. Electric did NOT work at our site!!! NO REFUND. We do not recommend, nor would we stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Nice staff. Clean facilities. We arrived on a weekend, without reservations, and we got the last site. (Reservations are recommended here.) Strong Wi-Fi signal. View of lake. Nice playground. Only drawbacks - traffic noise from the adjacent Hwy 43 Bypass, and the transients who sleep by the lake and come into the campground to steal things.

Date of Stay:

This park has been recently refurbished. Wide, level, gravel sites with picnic table and fire pit in either full sun or shade. Half the sites have 30A electric available (for $30/nt). Boat launch. Nice manager and staff. Small convenience store. No water or dump available, so arrive with full water and empty holding tanks. Wish they sold fishing licenses here. Very relaxing. We would stay here again. They do take reservations - which would be necessary during the height of fishing season.

Date of Stay:

Nice location along the river, and nice owner. There was a lot of maneuvering room. Power is generated on-site. We had a 15A electric site - with only 100 volts. (Campers with expensive electronics beware.) There was a nice playground area, and a small convenience store. Nicest RV park along the stretch of road between Fort Nelson and Dawson Creek.

Date of Stay:

Nice manager. We had a wide back-in site with FHU. Walking distance to Signpost Forest, Visitor Center, and Northern Lights Center. Best part was the barbecue dinner. Really good food for a very reasonable price.

Date of Stay:

Chose a site for it's view of the lake, which had 20A service and water. (There are a few 30A sites for extra cost.) Dump station, showers & laundry are available. Park is adjacent to metal grated suspension bridge, so hear vehicle noise all night. Earplugs are recommended. 4 cent per liter discount on fuel for campers. Restaurant had a good variety with fairly reasonable prices. Adjacent Wildlife Gallery is very well done. Also recommend the Tlingit Heritage Center. We would stay here again.
