Hardin KOA

Hardin, Montana

Date of Stay:

The park is less that a mile from I-90. Being that it is along an interstate I am sure there is a railroad nearby but we didn't hear them. It wasn't atrociously priced for a KOA. The owners are on top of things. They weren't here when we arrived but the night registration was simple and worked well in the day as well. Soon after we got settled in the owners checked to see if we needed anything gave us our receipt. It is a typical KOA in set up and amenities. But seems more spacious compared to most KOAs. You can still open your utility side window and shake hands with the person in the site next door but there is plenty of room on the entry door side. That is where you need the room. There are shade trees but a rig mounted dish will have no problem. We used our own facilities so can't say what the parks facilities were like. You can usually tell by the appearance of the park what things look like behind closed doors. This park is spotless. We shall return.

A nice overnight stop. It is close distance wise from I-90 but road noise irritation. There is a railroad on the southern edge of the park we were at first concerned about. We heard no horns and the one train that went through we saw but didn't hear. The owners were pleasant and helpful. Our Garmin wanted us to go past the entrance road so follow signs once you get close and you will be fine. The park was very clean and didn't seem overloaded with permanent residents like many have become. The electric was solid but the water pressure seemed low but workable. It may have been stepped down because their season hadn't really started when we stopped. We will stop here gain when we come through.

This park is close to I-90 easy on and off. The road leading to it is a gravel somewhat wash board lane but is less than 1/4 mile so no issues if you take is slow. The park itself has many trees but are trimmed well. Rig mounted satellite dishes probably won't work. When we were there we were able to get a signal due to the kindness of the owner to set aside a spot that would probably help but the trees hadn't filled with leaves. If there are no trees people complain there is no shade. If there are trees people complain there is no satellite reception. What is an owner to do? The park appears to be nothing but dirt with a smattering of gravel on the roads and sites. With rare exception there is grass where there should be and it is apparent the owners are working hard to keep it that way. But after an all night rain the sites and roads were solid. We had visions of mud all over the fender wells. We took it slow when we left and had nothing thrown on the motorhome. We suspected that because we followed another couple out and we could barely see their tire tracks. We didn't use the facilities so we can't speak about them. If they are as well kept as the rest of the park they will be great. We would definitely stay here again.

A bit off the path but easy in and out. Check in was easy with a friendly clerk. The park has a simple layout, large level sites and solid utilities. It was still crazy hot when we were there but even without trees for shade we stayed comfortable. We would rather have satellite than large trees so it worked out. We didn't notice any eating establishments so we ate leftovers. We'll be back. Remember this area is in the high desert - no grass to speak of.

Clean & quiet park. Check-in was easy and friendly. The clerk was able to change our site to a satellite-friendly one (I forgot to ask). There are many trees in the park so make sure you ask on check-in. It was close to I-80 but the noise was not a bother at all. There was a diner next door where we got our evening meal. I got good guy points for driving all day and "taking her out for dinner" but lost them all when I ran the kitchen faucet while she was in the shower... The site was level and the utilities were solid. I had to look closely at the layout before we left but it was simple. In the site we were located we had to turn right to turn left. We'll be back.

A great overnight stop on our Wagons East trip. Gassed the rig, parked it (level site), and got food at the café. It is fairly close to I-80 but noise was not an issue. Generally, railroads parallel the interstates but if there was one close by we didn't hear it. Electricity and water was in good shape. The sites are wider than most places. The last few we have stayed at you could open your kitchen window and shake hands with the people in the RV next to you. Easy in & out. We will definitely be back when we begin our westward migration.

Good overnight place. The sites are level but if there was a great deal of rain they may be a bit muddy. There is plenty of room between sites. US 287 is close but noise wasn't an issue. It was very quiet overnight. We will stay here is through the area again.

This is a good overnight stop. I wouldn't consider it a destination stop but there are many things to see in the area. We stopped at another place in Columbus but it was quite a mud pit. The roads are asphalt and the sites are gravel and level for the most part with plenty of space between the sites for awnings and slides. I-10 and a railroad are close. We were outside when the first train went through and we were a bit concerned but once inside with the windows and doors closed they weren't an issue at all. I-10 noise wasn't an issue for us at all. There is a small store that doesn't price gouge like some parks do. The internet was solid but speeds wouldn't let you watch movies or TV shows. We will definitely be back.

This is formerly the Columbus KOA. The mailing address is Weimar so that is the city I listed it in. The electric was solid, water pressure was good. The roads are asphalt and sites are gravel and level. The sites and roads are wide enough that a big rig should have no issues at all. WIFI was fast, and we had no hiccups with it. As with any RV park along a major highway there is a railroad nearby. If you are outside they might be noisy depending on their direction and the wind direction. Once we got inside with the TV at a normal volume we could barely hear them. It is right at I-10 exit 689 so easy off & on, but the road noise is not an issue. One shower/bathroom. We have an RV so we use our own facilities, but I went in and it was very clean. The dog walk and playground were KOAish. There is also an area to the rear of the dog park that people had their dog out in. We were tired on our arrival night so we tried their pizza. We expected a cardboard frozen pizza you normally find, but it was really good. We will stay here again.

This was our second stop here this year. The worker seem very happy and from check in to departure it was a pleasant experience. I have seen wider spots, but I have seen much narrower ones. Electric and water worked flawlessly. This place has the cleanest restrooms we have ever seen in a campground. It was crazy hot, but the pool was clean and relaxing. We weren't able to put our awning out due to the wind, but one has to expect it on the plains. We did the obligatory limo ride to the Big Texan. The girls in the office arranged it for us. We will definitely stay here again.

Great for an overnighter. Very easy access (off and on) I-44. The road noise didn't bother us at all but we tend to tune out "normal" noise. The hookups worked as designed. We have been here a couple of times and there are at least 3 restaurants you can get to without crossing any streets. Spaces were wide and long enough for today's rigs. As has been previously posted by others, it isn't a destination, amenity-laden parks. It is an RV express. Pull in, set up, eat, sleep and bug out in the morning for a small fee. If they just had an ice machine or sold ice.

Date of Stay:

A lot of permanent residents. Many sites look shabby and one would think that management would make them fix it. But it seems many RV parks are catering to permanent residents and don't worry as much about the over nights. No road noise (or resident noise) to speak of. The only issue is a blind curve at the exit. If people were driving the speed limit it wouldn't be an issue. When you pull out - get moving. We'd stay here again if nothing else was available.

Date of Stay:

Level and easy to maneuver spots. Close to I-40 but no noise issues. We will stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Decent RV park. We stayed overnight and will stay again. It needs some work to make it perfect. As mentioned not a lot of shade.

Date of Stay:

Level spots with easy access. We had no issues with road, train or truck stop noise. Nobody was in the office when we arrived so we set up and went to sleep. We paid the next morning when we left. It will be on our "Stay Here" list.
