This was the only park in the area of our travels, so we decided to take a chance despite the poor reviews. After the last review, we considered cancelling our reservation, but was told that we were within the 10-day window that prohibited a refund. Entering the park, it is a long, dusty trip to the pull-through sites, resulting in a tow vehicle covered in dust. Hookups were not convenient; sewer was 20' to the rear of the power pedestal, water was 25' in front, requiring extensions for both. But the real problem is the noise - overwhelmingly loud, continual, and intrusive. We felt like we were parked in the median of the interstate, except that if we were we wouldn't have the roar of exhaust brakes as trucks slowed for the adjacent truck stop. WiFi was intermittent, Verizon cell/data was good, and there is no cable TV and little OTA. All this for $42 a night with the Good Sam discount. We will avoid this park in the future.

Convenient to Peoria, easy to find and access, this park is largely long term or seasonal residents who have boats in the marina. Check in was quick and we were led to our site. Interior roads and sites are paved, and although a bit tight due to large trees and fairly close sites, our 40' motor home was easy to park. No WiFi but good Verizon cell/data, no cable but a fair number of OTA channels. Satellite TV may or may not be usable due to the many trees. Far enough from the highway and river to be quiet, but close to shopping, dining, and a casino. A good value in an area without many options.

We spent the busy 4th of July weekend here and were pleased with the quality of the park and it's hosts. A large park, it was full during our visit with lots of children, but quiet time was enforced and nights were quiet. The number and quality of playgrounds for children was the best we've seen and contributed to the quality of our stay. Large sites, on a slope but fairly level, with fire ring, table, and sometimes a small tree. Meticulously maintained grounds. Too many people for the single WiFi antenna, but Verizon cell/data were good. No cable but plenty of OTA TV and no obstructions to the satellites. An extremely well managed park; we'll visit again.

This park is a great value, and even at full price rewards a visit with a quiet, relaxing stay. Long, level pull thru sites under large trees with lots of grass - the perfect place for a recliner, a good book, and a nap. The owners were friendly and helpful, and are quick to provide assistance. No cable TV and few open areas for a satellite, but ample OTA TV. Good, solid WiFi, and Verizon cell/data were excellent. Some train noise in the early evening, but quiet at night. Not a lot to do in the area, but perfect for a relaxing stay. We'll visit again.

Rate is with Passport America. We're glad we stopped at this extremely well maintained park. Checked in and led to our site by the friendly owners, we were impressed with the manicured, long, pull-thru site. Interior roads and sites are level gravel, with conveniently placed hookups. No cable TV, limited OTA TV, but no obstructions to the satellites. Unusually solid WiFi, and Verizon cell/data were very good. Some train noise during the day but quiet at night. Don't be put off when driving through the sad little town of Summit - this park is a gem and shouldn't be missed. We'll stay here again.

An interesting park with great deal of potential. The long dusty driveway and interior roads were an irritant, but the sites are extra long, level, and ours had a large tree for shade. Sites are nicely spaced and have a table and fire pit. No cable, OTA TV, and limited views of the TV satellites. The park WiFi was too weak to use, but Verizon cell/data were strong. While train tracks are close, the noise was minimal, and the park is far enough off the road to be quiet at night. The owners, while not overly friendly, were professional and helpful. A popular place for fisherman, the long sites are perfect for an additional vehicle and boats.

A perfect park for an overnight stay. Nothing fancy, just a friendly owner, low price, long pull thru sites, and 30A power and water. Surprisingly strong WiFi, cable TV, and good Verizon cell/data. Right off the interstate, easy in/out. Not a destination park, but we weren't looking for one. We'll stay here again.

Compared to other Famcamps, we rate this location below average largely for the inane policy of not taking reservations or having a phone contact. Getting there requires a six plus mile drive off the interstate through the heart of the business area, and if they're full your option may be the on-base annex, except you can't get through the main gate with a large RV. I feel sorry for the hosts, who were very professional, when they have to turn people away. The park itself is average; paved interior roads with unusually sloped concrete pads that are difficult to level on without raising the front wheels off of the ground. Hookups were good, no cable, little OTA, but no obstructions to satellite TV. The park WiFi was unusable, but Verizon cell/data were strong. An unusual rule was that tow vehicles could not be hooked up on the pads, which was inconvenient and made no sense. Opposite facing sites resulted in better than average space, but overall a mediocre location.

We agree with other reviewers that the new owners are wonderful and working hard to improve the park. Obviously an old KOA, the layout and infrastructure are dated, with 30A only. Most sites have no shade, and there is little grass. Our site was a fairly level pull-thru, and with few RVs in the park, there was ample room. The park WiFi worked well, but there is no cable or OTA TV. Verizon cell/data signal was strong. A park with enormous potential but with some ways to go. Somewhat overpriced in it's current condition, but it's the only park in the area.

Rate is based on Passport America discount. We stayed here based on previous reviews and were not disappointed. Fast, friendly check-in (make sure you pet the cat), large, level concrete pads, and spacious, all-concrete sites. Although along the highway, there was no significant noise and the park was quiet and dark at night. OK cable, no obstructions to the satellites, but little OTA TV. The park WiFi worked well during our one-week stay regardless of the time of day. Verizon cell/data were also very good. The hosts are veteran professionals who excel at making this a great stay, and we'll be back.

Another- great stay since our last visit a year ago. A forest environment with stream running in back of the park. Many pros - friendly staff, level sites with grass, good WiFi, and quiet setting. Verizon cell/data were very strong, cable and OTA TV fair, and full hookups worked well. Only downside is the dust since the interior roads are dirt, and new this year, annoying speed strips. But still the best value if you're visiting the Missoula area.

Calling this a "resort" may be a bit of a stretch, but it's a great little park under tall pines and next to a stream. Only a few sites, and only one with 50A, but they're fairly level gravel pull-thrus with adequate spacing. No cable or WiFi, but surprisingly a few OTA stations. Lots of trees, but a few holes for a tripod satellite mount. Verizon cell/data worked well. Some truck noise from the highway, but fairly quiet at night. The store has basic items but the restaurant wasn't open this early in the year.

I wish RV park owners all over the country would visit this park to see how a park should be designed. Long, level gravel pull thrus are staggered so that the nose of your neighbors rig is aligned with the back of yours. Lots of grass, good hookups, and quiet and dark at night. Good Verizon cell/data, and solid park WiFi. No cable or OTA TV here, but the office has a library of DVDs and there are no obstructions to the satellites. Easy access to the interstate buy far enough that there's no road noise. Nice views of the mountains and close to Dillon for shopping and dining. We'll stay here again.

Well laid out, reasonable, and in a great location, this park has become one of our favorites. Easy access from the highway, long pull-thru level gravel sites, and exceptional spacing between sites, with green grass and a small tree. The owner is friendly and accommodating, and the staff does a great job in maintaining the grounds. Good Verizon cell/data, but park WiFi was seldom usable. No cable or OTA TV, but there are no obstructions to the satellites. Laundry room was adequate. Great views of snow-capped mountains in all directions, a beautiful area and convenient to parks and historical areas. Very popular, so reservations are a good idea.

This park probably shouldn't earn as high a rating as it does; the sites are painfully close together, it's a bit pricey, and there's just the basic amenities, but "Peter D" and his wife are the most accommodating owners you'll find. Pete is a character who will educate you on the area and delight you with his stories. About half the park is now long-term residents, but outside areas were neat and well tended. The cable TV is analog and basic, but there are no obstructions to the TV satellites. The WiFi was slow and spotty, but Verizon cell/data were strong. Everything is well maintained and the owners will stop by and check to make sure your stay is comfortable. Our preferred stop in Sheridan.
