About Jim Lee

I'm a retired 6th grade teacher and my wife is a retired nurse. We travel about 4-5 months a year. We like forest service camps, BLM camps and NPS camps. I have never gotten the hang of using that reserve America program for NPS so we aim for walkup camps. We use passport America and Good Sam. Also the senior park pass.

Passport America rate.....grass spots, very good water pressure Tengo Internet, no cable, has restrooms, showers and laundry, we didn't use them. gravel roads. Nice stop on the way home. We stayed here two days, didn't unhook, just rested up. There is a grocery store in town and a couple of restaurants. We ate out of the trailer.

Date of Stay:

Nice park, wide spaces, we were in a back in, no problem for us, they do have pull throughs. Cable tv is good, Like a previous reviewer, we only got 10 or 12 snowy channels then I remembered to turn my antenna booster off. We got all the channels. We have no complaints, We would stay here again. Main office people very helpful. wifi is good. We camp in an Airstream and always ask for a spot close to the wifi tower. Most camps accomodate our requests.

Date of Stay:

The RV Park has excellent wifi, cable tv with premium channels---the shady spots were all taken. But, 2 out of 3 ain't bad at all! We like this park and keep extending our stay. Lights, water, sewer all included. No swimming pool, no rec hall, no showers or bathrooms..but we're in a self contained Airstream so not a problem. Would we stay here again? Yes. They have pull thru and back in sites. We chose a back in to be close to the wifi tower. Good wifi, sites were gravel and level, we needed no blocking. Pretty nice park with friendly owners.

Date of Stay:

Stayed here for 5 days. Very quiet park.... imagine a 1960s park with shade trees, good wifi, cable tv, laundry and concrete pads. We like this kind of parks. On site owner runs an RV repair service which is a nice touch. Pretty nice. My wife and I like these old fashioned trailer camps... they are out there and they are a gem to find.

Date of Stay:

Dark gravel parking, spots slope down hill, front of 31' trailer is higher than I like. Front stabilizers needed blocking as did front jack. Electricity is good, water is good, campground furnishes hose and pigtail for electricity. Water pressure is good. Nice place, left side of trailer faces west so hot afternoon sun shines right on refrigerator. Nice place, would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Nice park off highway, very quiet . This is a working ranch, a large herd of cows would cross the pasture each evening, nice to watch. Clean showers, good laundry, good WiFi at space. Clubhouse with television, about 10 miles outside of town. Camp hosts friendly, good communication. $10 deposit for reservations.

I like the system used for determining if a spot is occupied, provided the occupant puts his card in the right slot. We found an empty spot (80), parked our 31' trailer in there. Someone had put their card for spot 88 in spot 80 slot. Camp host said we'd have to move. Moved to spot 39, had hard time leveling because the pea gravel kept sliding my leveling boards. Camp host was very helpful. Typical NPS park. Lots of shade and quiet. Paved roads on all the loops. Some spots were near the river but you had to get their early to get them. First come first served campground.

Date of Stay:

3 loops, with a 31' trailer our site options were limited. I wouldn't want to bring a big rig or a big 5th wheel in here. Saw several Class C rentals in here. Typical NPS park, no hookups, no close neighbors, wasn't very crowded in late August. Burn ban in effect due to all the fires. From web site-RVs: Sites for 21 feet.

Date of Stay:

Gravel parking lot. Park will be closed Sep 8 for several years for waste water treatment plant construction. Good water pressure, good electricity, lousy WiFi, had to buy extension for sewer hose, hookups in middle of spot. Not much shade.... think big parking lot but close to bay which also means sea gulls. Noisy. Spots wide enough to park tow vehicle next to trailer.

Date of Stay:

We were the only transients in the park. Nice tall pine trees, soft pine needles on the ground. The spot we were in required leveling. Had to use WiFi repeater to get good internet. Host very pleasant and helpful. Good water pressure. Nice overnight stop on way to Seattle area. We would stay here again.

Carlton RV Park

Date of Stay:

Clean park, old school. all hook ups. grass, showers and bathrooms functional and clean. Camp hosts friendly and helpful. level spot. very good wifi. we would camp here again.

Date of Stay:

14 back-in spaces with electric hook up and Potable water- no sewer, 50-60 feet, 8-10 spaces designated for tents along the creek. RV park water is turned off and restroom is closed October thru March; electricity is on year round. RV park is open year round weather permitting, no snow plowing. Quiet little park, lots of shade. A creek runs behind some of the spaces. Sprinklers washed our trailer in spot #4. 4g signal good, wifi is at subway across the street but not for campers... self pay on the honor system. Parking lot is dusty. We would camp here again.

Date of Stay:

Good, clean park in East Glacier Park MT. We camped against the west fence for shade, lights and water but no sewer connection. $25 a night. We'd camp here again. Strong water pressure. Train noise which is not a bother to us. Easy access to Going to Sun road, Two Medicine Camp and East Glacier. Owners very friendly and accommodating. Inner circle with full hookups is gravel.

Date of Stay:

This is a clean park. Pride of ownership really shows. Restrooms are clean, showers are 4 quarters for 3 minutes or 8 quarters for 7 minutes. Dump station for RVs... necessary because the newer portion of camp doesn't have sewers yet. We used Passport America discount and camped in a 1978 Airstream. Wifi was great outside the trailer sitting at the picnic table. Could not get wifi inside the trailer.... Owners are friendly. All the spots are shady.
