We stayed 5 nights, easy in and out, friendly and helpful staff. Roads are asphalt and some gravel, wide enough to maneuver. Sites are long and wide enough for big rigs with slideouts and awnings, on gravel, sloping to one side and forward, needed 2 boards on one side. Grass between sites. Hookups are ok and worked well, cable TV has plenty of channels but quite a few ones lose the sound after about 2 seconds. Wi-Fi has a strong signal, but only little bandwidth so if you need to send a load, bring your own solution. Restrooms for our part of the park was one of these restrooms containers. Nothing wrong with that, it was clean and worked, simply not really fancy and the shower stalls are really small and tight. Price represents Good Sam discount. I recommend this park and will return if again in this area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Only stopped for one night. Site was level with gravel and long enough to not unhook. Site access and park roads were good. Some road noise. It was also next to the airport. Staff was friendly. Park was maintained. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Came in for one night, stayed four. Don't let the railroad foul you, no trains on this track. Very quiet at night. Cable is great, Wi-Fi has a strong signal but is very bad, drops more out. Big spots and great for big rigs. If you want you don't have to unhitch. Parked on gravel, next to grass. Very nice owners, easy driving through park. Clean and easy access from the interstate. Great for visiting the great city of Great Falls. Wallmart and shops nearby. Very interesting things to visit, Lewis and Clark etc. nearby. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had a great, level, gravel site at the end of the row with a grassy yard. A first. But most sites are a little close, but not terrible, with grass and a picnic table between the gravel sites. Very nice checkin. The Wi-Fi signal looked strong, but it was unreliable, frequently dropping. We're a big rig so no trees to contend with is a good thing for us and most transients are in the treeless area. Easy maneuverability in the park . Location is good for most Great Falls activities. Close to many muni golf courses and the outstanding CM Russell Museum. FYI--the Ryan Dam where Lewis and Clark portaged the falls is only open from Memorial Day to Labor Day. It's still visible, but the park is not accessible. . We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Propane refills reasonably priced and available at park office. Wireless was virtually useless (on multiple devices), extremely slow, and constantly dropping even though signal strength was good. Shaded spots only seem available for long term clients. Fighter jets were flying in and out of the airport that is at the top of the valley just west of the park. Interesting but noisy. A bit like being at an airshow. Location is central. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Pull through sites were sufficient, gravel and paved roads to get in and out easily, sites were level albeit a little tight. There was a small grass area between sites. Hookups including electric, sewer, water and cable all worked well. Satellite reception was good. Campground Wi-Fi was erratic. Verizon 3G and cell service were good. Stayed for 5 days, 4 nights. Campground is home to lots of permanent residents, but the short terms stays seem to be at one end of the park. Note, there is no shade for the short timers. Location was great, right in town and close to shopping and restaurants. A good overall spot to see the few sites around and stock up to move on to more remote areas. No pool, spa or playground. We would stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a large campground that seems to be occupied primarily by those who live in RV's on a permanent basis. There were many park model trailers, large propane tanks, and trailers with skirting around the base. The store consisted of a vending machine. The picnic table was splintered and unusable. There were many small pieces of garbage in the somewhat green grass. I would never stay here again. The roads are wide, utilities worked, and our site was level. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Shore services are good, Verizon 3G aircard works well, didn't use campground Wi-Fi. Cable was good. Site are good. Level enough and wide enough. They have an area built by the site to park your tow vehicle. Makes it easy to exit your RV and walk back to the car or truck. Didn't use the restrooms. They are built into a portable building. DirecTV satellite is easy to access. We stayed here for a week so the rate is the week rate divided by 7 days. This is a good campground and we would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very happy with the park. Most of the sites are long-term, but the big open pull thrus seem to be saved for us short termers. These are open for satellite. Verizon data was good. We never were able to connect to the park Wi-Fi. Will stay again if we return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park right in town. We could not get Wi-Fi signal because the park was full. We did get satellite signal and antenna reception and there was cable. The laundry was clean and reasonably priced. It is a very popular park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park. We had a long pull-through site, fairly level. No shade at most sites, all gravel. Follow directions carefully, and you'll have no trouble finding the park. Caravans leave from here to Alaska, Calgary etc. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Dealt with Cathy....a very funny, nice lady. We were traveling in a caravan of 3 Newell coaches with lengths ranging from 62-65' and were given three sites that worked well for all three of us. She was ready for us when we arrived and had us checked in quickly. It was hot, but the 50 amps of power was steady as everyone's A/C's were humming. They sell propane on site at $3/gallon, which we took advantage of. Basic gravel sites, but very level, and plenty of room in between the sites. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park. Occasional jets from the USAF base nearby, but proud to hear our military training. Nice pull through sites, well maintained. Wifi not the best but not bad. Fairly convenient to town, visited the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center. Well done. Great views. Wanted to visit CM Russell museum, but it was Monday and it was closed. Bummer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The selection of rv parks in this area is limited so I was happy to find this one that would accommodate my rig. Getting to it is a bit of an adventure...its off the beaten path & you have to go through a bit of a residential area but there are signs. Call for good directions. The park is fairly large, the staff was friendly. It appeared to have several long term residents & it was crowded with dusty roads & kids everywhere. I was only passing through so for one night it was adequate. Site wasn't level & there is very little space between them...I was told the area was safe but I didn't venture anywhere to find out. Lots of noise but given the choices...it was fine for overnight. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed three nights. Had pull through site. Lots of room. Staff was very courteous. Easy access to RV Park and lots of area to walk dogs. We would stay here again. For $10 extra, they will let you wash vehicle at site. Wi-Fi was easy to access but not very stable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The good: staff was friendly and for $10 you're allowed to wash your coach and the car. The bad: site was uneven, the NOISE level was significant, WiFi is free but could barely stay on it and the place is loaded with kids running around. This is not a place to stay long term if you're sensitive to the issues mentioned. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Short timers are put in the newer area. The sites are pretty wide and all new infrastructure. Not a lot of trees. We were on the last row which faced the storage area (really junk cars and RV area). Basic park with decent slots, but really nothing else. You sit at the end of the runway which is up on a hill, if you like planes, this is good to watch (the F-15s were fun to watch). Also, read the directions on their website, our GPS was a little freaky as you enter uncharted territory for the last 2 blocks. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were put off by the indifferent reception, particularly when we were told we had to take what was available because a large caravan was coming in and they "come first" with the inference being we come second. Worse, a new water faucet had been installed at our site, but the outlet was a scant two inches above the ground, not nearly enough to allow a coupling and curving of the hose without kinking. So I took a portable shovel to deepen the hole. Even then, it was a tight fit. When I told the lady at the desk and smilingly suggested we get a discount, she severely scolded me for not calling them first, but after a long day on the road, I simply took the quickest course of action. I reminded her they should check the sites before renting them. She never apologized. Instead, she just turned away. Most revealing is that she knew the number of our site without ever seeing me before or looking at their paperwork. That made me suspect she knew about the problem all along. In my opinion, neither she nor the gentleman who checked us in are "people" people. Because their attitude indicates what their behavior most likely would be in handling more serious situations, I would not recommend this facility to anyone. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Even with the parks proximity to the freeway, it was still not any more noisy than a lot of other sites. Family that runs the park was very accommodating. Sites were a good size, level with grassed areas in between and well maintained. Laundry facilities were reasonable and functioned well. Can't comment on washrooms, since we didn't use them. There was a good fenced area to exercise the dog, would have been much better if other all users would have been courteous enough to pick up after their animals, but there are always those that don't. I would stay here again and would not be afraid to recommend the park to others. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is the “best” in the area, and it's not great. The owners do maintain it and were working on improvements while we were there. The sites are adequate. The laundry is okay. There is a decent-sized, fenced dog run. This park is adequate for a night or two. If you have time, it’s well worth a visit to the Malmstrom, Air Force Base museum. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Right in the center of things in Great Falls Montana. Good location if you are going into the big city for a shopping excursion. But, also an excellent location for walking / hiking. Located right on the river with a paved walking trail; lots of wildlife to entertain the dogs when out on your walk. Friendly staff; excellent amenities. Have returned to this location each year over the last 3 yrs. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Over-priced by $10-$12 even with Good Sam discount. Located between two airports and has railroad over-pass at entrance to campground. Showers are setup without privacy for men with a common dressing area. Woman at check-in was overly talkative and took a reservation over the phone while we had waited 10 minutes to check-in. Park appears to have many workers with small children as residents. Children were running in streets and yelling from about 1:30 PM until 8:00 PM. Gravel parking pads were fairly level and utilities were well laid out. We will not return We camped here in a Motorhome.
Okay place for one night. Wi-Fi was good. All utilities were satisfactory. We witnessed the owner/manager brow beat 3 different guests about the 7-1/2 mph limit in the park and also one of his employees about the misuse of tools. He should remember if it wasn't for the guests he would not have a business. There is always a better way to handle situations than to yell and belittle. We will not return to Dick's! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Washrooms were clean; showers were very cramped, but the water was warm. The shower house is a trailer. The RV sites are plenty long for bigger units, fairly level, and easy to get into. When we were there, we had a snow storm, and they were very accommodating when we needed an extra day. The water had to be turned off at night as the weather was so cold, but they had lots of notices up to inform people. The wi-fi was very unreliable, but at least when you talked to them, they did not say it was because of our computer or something we were doing wrong like so many of these parks try to tell you. This is a good place to stay for a few days. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Excellent park, clean, large, well spaced sites. Open year round, so great for us snowbirds heading south. The young lady at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again on our way back north in the spring. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park with long level sites; some are paved, most are not. Average width between sites, which is fairly close, but not slide to slide. Grass at each site. Hook ups all worked. Close to railroad tracks and freeway, so a bit noisy. Park is very tidy. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Just passing through for the night - Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park is large with some permanent guests. You do not get to select your site. It is near the end of the freeway so you get lots of truck engine breaking noise. The owners are friendly but in business to make a buck. They are not too helpful as we stayed here to ride on the bicycle train and they did not know much about it (part was closed). They did not offer up any information on the local area either. Would select another park next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very easy campground to maneuver around. They understand what RVers need, are connected to local repair shops if needed, good big sites for RVs with slides, and plenty of room to exercise your pets. I stayed here on way up to Canada and on the way back because it has not only full hookups but allows you to clean your RV or just bucket wash your front windshield for free. Great staff as well! We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a disappointment after a long day of driving! Hard to find and get to; very big park and crowded. No shade, hot, semi-trashy feel about the whole park. Dumpsters all overflowing. Loud music from a bar the clerk said was three blocks away! Made for a lousy night. Won't go back here! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park was a real joy to stay in with long pull-through sites and park place alongside. There is a large grass area between each site which is kept cut and watered. Each site has a picnic table. We stayed here for 3-days and would come back again. This is a great park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I've read a lot of reviews about Dick's RV Park, some good, some not so good. We've stayed here three different times and this last time was the best yet. The spaces are wide with green grass and a table in every space. The cable TV was the best cable we have ever had in an RV park. Clear picture and lots of channels. This park is located close to the Canadian border and lots of Albertans use this park. They come in groups and like to party. However, they didn't bother us. There is a major grocery and several restaurants within a mile or two and easy access to Great Falls. We would definitely stay there again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
On caravan so no idea of cost. Hard park to rate. Bridge is scary but at 13ft cleared and as noted listed at 14 ft. Fair number of long term RVs. But it was ok to get to and into, and sites level and all works well but it and location will not win any awards for beauty. So it is good but utilitarian. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites are well maintained, not kid friendly but not real bad. Staff not too friendly but acceptable. Far from downtown Great falls but not much choice in campgrounds here. Would stay there again on an overnight tour only. Stayed one night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground clean and well maintained. Using old trailer as shower and bathroom. Though clean, it was old and very hot! No air conditioning and electric outlets didn't work. Sites small and crowded though level and easy to pull into. Also had some back in sites. It was alright but would probably not stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Friendly staff. We experienced a breakdown within 500 feet of the entrance and they were very helpful in getting us on the road again. Only stayed one night but park was clean and quiet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Old railroad bridge just before entering: 14 foot maximum. Staff friendly and helpful. Sites have room for slide outs and awnings. A few trees but mostly in sun. Some noise from planes and railroad but quiet at night. Wi-Fi worked well as did cable TV. Few amenities. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Manager was foul mouthed in general, not about anything in particular. Park appears to be filled mainly with live-ins; many run down trailers and young children running around unattended. Sites were close together. Will not stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Arrived late, no reservation, pouring rain, park was near full. Could title this night as Nightmare on I-15. Site was along freeway. Would not stay here again. No sleep. Had a shower, I am 6 ft, had to bend down to wash my hair. The noise from the freeway was unbearable. We planned on staying two or three days, we couldn't wait to get out. Lots of TV channels, had to adjust volume according to freeway traffic. WiFi was great. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate reflects Good Sam discount and including taxes. Sites are level, our site was gravel (some paved), and wide spaces between RVs. There is a RR bridge which has 14 ft clearance as you approach the entrance. There is a new Wi-Fi system but for some reason, I could not get Internet access. Since others appear to be able to connect, I am assuming the issue is on my end. Staff helpful. Our stay is 1 night, but if in the area, we would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First time here, on way to Glacier. Nice park, particularly for pets. Lots of grassy area near each pad. Check-in was easy; friendly folks. Large park, easy on/off interstate. Would stay again if we return. Airport near, did not bother us. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Good site services, including Wi-Fi and cable TV, for our two night stay. Easy access from I-15. If you are an early to bed type then road traffic from adjacent street will be a problem, but this noise dies down after 10pm. Airport has departures early morning and most of the time these are not an issue depending on wind direction. Good variety of stores for shopping. We stayed here before and will stay again when in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Friendly staff. Used it as a one night stopover. Park and pet area clean. Lots of area to walk pets. We were away from the highway so didn't notice highway noise. Below the airport, but didn't hear planes while sleeping. Cool to watch the F-16s fly by. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Sites are level and the park is easy in and easy out. Nothing much close by to walk to. Lots of full-timers whose units are starting to show some wear. Traffic noise was fairly significant since the park was next to one of the main roads in Great Falls. There is no privacy between units and the park really has no ambiance. Wi-Fi worked well and so did Verizon air card. If in the area again, might try somewhere else. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is an older park but maintained. Facilities are well used especially the laundry, but clean. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Sites are gravel and mostly level. No trees for shade. Close to grocery store, restaurants, and shopping. Stay here almost every year while visiting family. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here one night only - had an electric only sight. The space was very close to our neighbor - luckily they were traveling with us and we knew them. It was an okay spot for overnight. The park itself had lots of spaces and was very nice. Would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed at this campground for one night while passing through. The park is rather large and has a large amount of full time residents. The transients like us were put in an open area without any shade. The sites were large and level. The park is convenient to shopping, gambling, if that is your thing and overall not a bad place to spend a night. The staff was friendly however they were rushed due to a large amount of check ins. The Wi-Fi was almost useless even in the early morning when most people aren't using it. I would stay here again if only for a night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It is convenient to everything in town. Sites are fairly level and grassy. The employees really keep campers aware of the 10 MPH speed limit. We stay here every time we are in Great Falls. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It was OK. Had a trailer park feel. No privacy at all. The bathrooms were a converted modular home, but they were very clean. The park is located close to the Sun River which had beautiful sunsets. Located very close to a major highway and a very busy airport. No sleeping in as the Military Reserves use the airport! The staff was very friendly. It was just OK, but I would not want to stay for long, 3 nights was enough. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
NOISY! At least in the vicinity of site 112. Otherwise comments from prior reviews are on target. We will not stay here again unless we can get a site in the far NW corner of the campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Big park, convenient to everything. Very friendly and efficient in the office. Site was great, water pressure good, great Wi-Fi. You are pretty close to a fairly busy highway so you can hear some noise at night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very efficient check-in and lots of useful information given. Staff very helpful too. Site uneven and needed leveling, but services all OK. Wi-Fi and TV service good. Plenty of space on pull-through sites. Could do with more washers/dryers in the laundry for such a big campground. Excellent cycle trail near the river - ask Office for details. Would use again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We called to make reservations for 2 nights and were informed that they could only accommodate us for 1 night as they were "really booked-up". However, when we got there it we were asked "How many nights do you need?". Since we had been told something different the previous day we had already made other arrangements for out 2nd night and thus, moved onto our next town. We did receive a 10% discount,(paid $33.70) - and would have been well OVER-priced without that discount given the location (noisy/airport jets) and reservation inconvenience. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very large park. A high percentage of permanent residents. The spots were nice and large, internet was decent (not fast) The laundry room and bathrooms could really use a cleaning. I decided to shower in the trailer, as the shower and bathroom were filthy. Easy on, Easy off the highway. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate is daily rate for 50 amp FHU pull through site with GS discount. Gravel road and pad with a nice grassy strip between sites. Good maneuverability for larger rigs. One section has trees, the other section is wide open. Good satellite and Verizon cell phone reception. Located off the beaten path, and the height of the railroad trestle is plainly marked. Some road noise. Nice park to use either as a base when exploring the area or for an overnight stop. We would stay here again if back in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We enjoyed our stay at this RV Park. The management is friendly and the park is pleasant. The sites are gravel driveways with grassy areas and picnic tables. Some of the sites have trees providing shade during the hotter sunny days. They also have cable TV and Wi-Fi. The location is convent to the freeway and the town. Be sure to take in the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center and Giant Springs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Dick's was the only show in town with the KOA closed for the season. We didn't want to tow our big rig down 10th Ave to the KOA anyway and Dick's is very conveniently just off the highway. Located walking distance from the river. Nice grassy sites. Quiet park. Some long term sites, but well kept and low key. We would stay here again while visiting relatives in Great Falls. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice, family-run park in a convenient location. We did get some road noise and hear trains in the distance, but the real eye-opener was the sound of planes taking off from the airport up the hill. The park is separated into a treed long-term side and a more open short-term part, about 60% long term. The interior roads are paved in the long-term side and gravel in the short-term; all sites are well-packed gravel. Most of the transient sites are long pull-throughs with wide grass spacing that should handle most large rigs. Wi-Fi was stable and relatively fast, and we had a good satellite signal for TV. Most sites require judicious leveling, as they are sloped for drainage. Staff (owners) are very friendly and helpful. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly park located in the city of Great Falls, Montana. It is close to shopping and easy to find. We found the traffic noise bothersome. Our site backed onto the highway so it sounded like cars were very close. 0230-0630 was better. Staff are very good and helpful. There is a small RV shop with quite a few useful parts for sale to enhance the lifestyle. Other clientele were friendly which reflects the atmosphere on site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park has wide driveways and sites. There is plenty of grass around the sites but not all have shade. The power is good and all the hookups work. We had relatively good Wi-Fi in site 81. We are on our second night here and may stay a third. The location is very convenient for most activities in the area. The freeway is noisy at times. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We arrived here expecting to stay a few days. Due to a fall, surgery and rehab, we stayed until Sept. 6th. We stayed at three sites during the two months. First, stayed at a large pull through with well placed utilities. After my mother's fall, the staff was very quick in juggling reservations and putting us in a monthly site. The monthly rate is a very reasonable $350 plus electricity, which was only $80 for July. The only problem with the first site was that it was sloped, much more suitable for a smaller unit or an RV with a door at the rear. Our 42' pusher’s bottom step was about two feet off the ground, I had to block up the front tires and build steps to reach the MH steps. The last site was level and further from the highway. All during our stay, the staff was friendly, helpful and solicitous about my mother's condition. We would stay here again if we are in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park with big sites and easy access for big rigs. Entrance to park from Interstate is a little confusing but well signed. Close to all kinds of shopping and restaurants (within a mile). Lots of areas to walk dogs. A little road noise but not too bad at night. Would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I could be generous and award a rating score of seven for this RV Park. Yet, I experienced a few problems here and I'm not sure if the place is worthy of a seven. We made reservations in June for two separate dates. Upon arrival, with the confirmation letters, the staff had no record of the reservation. Plus, I found out they had charged me for night in June, which was an error they corrected. Regardless of what I feel about the place, its full or nearly full each night in July. It's the only "real" RV park along I-15 in this area of Montana. There are both spacious backins and pull-throughs here. I got the impression overnighters are assigned the west row pull-throughs. Those sites have wide access lanes,but they are somewhat dusty. My site was sloped and it was difficult to level the motorhome. A walk around reflected the majority of the pull-throughs are not level and they are lumpy. They charge ten dollars for RV washing. Don't bother! The sprinklers come on at night and they soaked everything I left outside and gave the RV a bath. The sewer drops are upslope. I always wonder where someone got an engineering degree when I find this situation at a site. For 150 sites there is one small restroom, limited size in a trailer, and it requires a code. There must be only one WiFi source. For the west pull-throughs the WiFi is extremely weak at best and it disconnects after taking several minutes to bring up a page. If one likes airport noise, jets, trains, trucks, and Interstate noise, this is an excellent place for the complete collection of sounds to keep you awake. We stayed for one night at the Good Sam rate. In the future we will drive to Fort Benton to stay overnight in this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful sites, lush grass and enough space for a much bigger rig than ours! It is a huge campground with 150 sites, unfortunately no playground, but otherwise wonderful. WiFi is perfect (I am using it as I write this) and I'm told there is cable TV too. Very cheerful hosts made check in a breeze. Offer AAA/CAA discount too. Awesome deal for the cost of the site. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The $28.00 a night is the weekly rate. We had lots of room to maneuver our 38' fifth wheel. The sites are long and ours was level, lot's of room between sites not cramped in like other places we have been. It's got a great big, fenced in dog run. We did not use the rest rooms or showers; did see the laundry facilities, was small for a big campground like this one. Our only complaint was the WiFi did not work in the area we were in, but our Sprint wireless card worked great. The cable TV has a good selection, we will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
In the directions on website from I-15, the Exit number of 278 is not listed as Exit 278 but as 10th Ave.S. The office was advised that they might be easier to locate by listing the actual exit number in their website directions. Access into the park itself is easy as you only have to follow the blue camping signs. The front office personnel were very friendly and nice. Out site was very level and away from office so we did not have access to WiFi but our Verizon Card worked well. The cable TV was good with a lot of channels. The reason we rate this park a 7 is because of all of the permanent trailers: some of them are quite unattractive. You are close to major roads but we were not disturbed by this. This is a good overnight stop and we would stay they again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I find the last review very hard to believe! The site we were given was sloping so much to the side that we could not level our Motorhome either automatically or manually; the site also sloped severely to the front. After checking out several other sites and bringing a list to the office, they reluctantly let us move to another site which was on the level. There are 60 monthly sites and these are in the level area of the park. The park has two major roads on two sides and there is a lot of traffic which, if assigned to a site near the road, could be very noisy. Our cable TV service was good with clear reception. There was no sewer cap at the site we moved to, so we took one from a vacant site to use since we do not keep a sewer hose hooked up. The laundry room was one of the worst we have seen. The floor was so dirty that we got a broom and swept it. For a park this size there were only 5 washers and 5 dryers. We agree to look at the directions on Dicks web site and follow the trailer signs. You pass under a railroad bridge and this road does not look like you are going in the right direction. We have Verizon internet which worked well, but did notice that from our site the signal for Dicks Wi-Fi was not very strong. The rate was much lower than other parks we have stayed in, and the condition of the park went along with the rate. Having said all of these negative things, if we were in the area again, and only after being guaranteed a site on the level, we would stay here again because the park and the sites were easy to get into and out of, and the power and cable TV were good. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We are Canadians who come to stay at Dicks often, we would like to correct someone's poor review on this site. We have always had great service and experiences here. WiFi and cable TV works great. All the sites are level, contrary to the reviewer. The railroad the person mentioned is abandoned, you get a free airshow from the military exercises from the airport on the hill. If you follow the signs it is easy to find. And the bridge mentioned is not low. Some people are obviously hard to please. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate shown is with a Good Sam discount. Manager in office was very friendly and efficient. Pull through site was not level. Most of the cable TV channels were fairly snowy with only the local stations clear. WiFi fair to good. Used Skype phone, but got cut off by the WiFi connection. Using it now for this review. Best to follow the RV park website for directions to the park as my Streets and Trips map got me down a narrow road with a low underpass. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Clean campground with many long term units mostly around the perimeter, but these seem well maintained. Site was reasonably level side to side, but was not front to back. Wi-Fi worked well at our site which was close to the office. Services worked well. Road noise was noticeable early evening but not through the night. Stayed here for 2 nights and would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This RV park is in an industrial area, and has mostly permanent residents. There is some noise from two nearby highways, plus the railroad and airport. The sites are pull-throughs, and fairly large; big rigs should have no problems. $23 reflects an electric-only site. Wi-Fi worked for an hour, then completely died; the office staff indicated that they had recently switched providers, and were having many problems with it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Plenty of room to pull through, and sites were a little uneven but manageable. Wireless was not available, and no one could explain why not. This is a old park and needs a good cleanup with storage RV's in all states of repair. Not a good sight. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Friendly and helpful staff. Lots of people living in this park. The washroom building is old and in need of repairs. In the three days we were there, they had not been cleaned. This park is good for an overnight stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Tricky to get into because of highway on ramps, so follow signs! Nice family operated facility. Everyone was polite and helpful. The best choice in Great Falls, open year round. We stop here several times a year. Nice big pull through sites all around. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The permanent slots have good tree cover; the short-term slots do not. All the grass in the park is extremely green (due to their sprinkler system, I guess). Our spot was fairly level, and it was very easy to park. The park had a strong sulfur smell. Other reviews have complained about the noise, but we did not find that it was a problem for us (perhaps because we were there only one night). Fighter jets did fly over late Sunday morning, but they were not very loud. The family of cats that lived near the office was cute. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A nice park, but a bit noisy. The owner was always out and about making sure everything was okay. Nice friendly people. A lot of workers who are long term. Only drawback was the speeders. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is adjacent to a main highway so there is some road noise and the airport is on the bluff a few miles away; the commercial flights are not a problem but if the military is flying, takeoff noise is present. Easy park to find and access. Check-in is efficient and the staff is friendly. This park has an older section with paved roads and mature trees and a section with gravel roads and few trees, which is where we were. There were many seasonal rigs in the park and there are storage sites along the edge and a maintenance building near the entrance that needs to be fixed up. The utilities worked fine. Didn't use the cable TV as the satellite worked fine: there are adequate over-the-air chanels for local news and weather. Sites are easy to get into and long enough to leave tow vehicles attached. There is grass between sites and a table is provided. Aircard worked well for internet, I didn't try the Wi-Fi. A good park for the price and we would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A decent park to use while passing through. Wifi went out part way through the evening, but there was a big thunderstorm, so that may have something to do with it. Sites and roads were gravel with some grass. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is an older park with trees with dead branches, perhaps they were frozen in the spring, anyway they need trimming. There are nice grassy yards and paved sites. It was uphill 30 feet to the sewer connection. The water faucet on our site was broken and we had to share with next door. The manager offered to supply hose if I needed it. There is friendly staff, and ice prices were good. With a little clean up and repair and I would rate it higher. We would come here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Had a good level site and everything worked. Park has friendly, helpful staff. I have stayed here over the years: this park is well maintained. There are some full timers, but it's not a problem at all. I like this park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It is a very basic trailer park actually. There are dirt gravel roads for non-regulars. There are lot of trailers with permanent campers. Showers have a code lock, but are not well maintained, nor clean. There were empty body wash bottles and soap. There is lots of noise caused by the free-way and railway, which lasts day and night. There is a friendly and helpful host. Note: the five promised falls in the Missouri River appear to be artificial and locals call them "The damned falls..." Area of camping ground very depressive! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We choose this campground/RV park for level sites, electric, cable and wi-fi. It had all this, plus very friendly accommodating staff. However, overall, the old dictum "you get what you pay for" is very true in this case. The park with 150 sites was very crowded, only a few sites had shade. There were only 2 bathhouses, one an old quonset type trailer facility which was hot. I opted for no shower. The dog run had grass that was so dry and brittle my dog would not go there. The park's proximty to the interstate and attractions may give it some extra points, but when I went back into this site and read the description of its competition, I wish we had stayed there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very quiet park convenient to town and any thing you may need. Employees were very helpful and cordial. Sites are level and gravel. Good water pressure. Good destination park as there's so much to do and see in Great Falls. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed over night. It is an older park with some long term residents which seem to be separate from the short term area. Sites gravel, fairly level, and long enough to hold 40' motor home with toad attached. There is some noise from from the nearby busy street, but not excessive. Free WiFi. The management friendly and helpful. We would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
No complaints. Wifi works well and is free. You can wash the bugs off the front of your RV for free. You can wash your whole rig for $7. Park has a large percentage of monthly permanent guests, but that is not necessarily a negative for this park. Lots of room between sites. Plenty of room to get the satellite to lock in. Will stay again when in the city. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great Falls is really lacking a great campground. The staff were very nice but the campground really needs some updates. We stayed here on the way down to Yellowstone for a few days. We had a spot right next to a very run down barn and our view was campers and old vehicles in storage. The mini golf should be taken down it was a mess. We thankfully were as far as we could get from the highway that was busy all the time. It was incredibly noisy even from where we were. The bathrooms need updated but they were clean. This campground was just a spot to put the camper and do things in Great Falls. I didn't see many people out of their campers. The internet was nice to have as well as the cable TV. If you want a spot to park the camper and go then this campground would be good for a few days. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Overall this is a nice RV park. Some interior roads and sites are paved and some are gravel and a bit dusty (typical for Montana). Most sites are pull throughs. Water pressure and voltage were good. WiFi worked well even though we were on the extreme edge of the park. RV washing is available by teenage girls who work at the park and while we didn't use the service, I overheard others raving about it. Price paid reflects a Good Sam discount with taxes included. We'll definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here in July 2007. We have come to appreciate it more this year. It is still the same but we are rating it higher since it is an RV PARK and not a campground. The price is right and it the staff is sooo friendly! Good friendly service will win every time and that is what you get here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a large campground. Sites are gravel with grass between, and an assortment of trees depending upon which area of the park you may find yourself. Large pull-through w/ toad attached are common. While we were there, a Welarge caravan of Airstream units - all types - were there and we still had plenty of room. All of items [elec, water, sewer, cable worked very well. With all of the items available in Great Falls (Sams/RV repair/Wal-Mart) this is a great place to stay. We would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a decently nice campground that nicely served our needs while in Great Falls. The sites are nice and wide and pull through's for easy parking. They had gravel pads and nice grassy area between us and neighborer's along with picnic table. The cable worked good and the staff was friendly. It's located right in Great Falls and close to all amenities. We'd stay here again next time we're in Great Falls. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Excellent park. Very good Wi-Fi. Good interior roads. Long sites. Plenty of well trimmed and watered grass between sites. Good cable TV. Very friendly and helpful owner-office staff. Long term sites are relatively neat particularly in comparison to some other parks. Enjoy your stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent interior roads, with plenty of room for wide turns. Long pull-through sites with excellent 50 amp power. Free Wi-Fi. Good laundry facilities. Very pleasant managers. Well maintained grounds, with nice grass between the gravel sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice friendly staff. Great location in town with easy access to anywhere in the city. Long pull thru sites with grass, but few trees. back-in sites have large shade trees. Laundry room has new washers that have a water saving feature to use less water. The rinse cycle did not seem sufficient. Great cable TV with lots of channels. We enjoyed our 4 night stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good place for a stop-over. Cable & WiFi are very good & included in price. Facilities are in need of repair: water source leaks & laundry room is shabby with a number of broken machines. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A good spot for a stop over. Office help very nice and helpful. Can walk out back gate to road across to restaurant. Our spot was nice and large under beautiful trees. The new area for larger motorhomes do not have trees yet. Notice one review mentioned 'worst full timers' but we have seen much worse and didn't think that a problem. Actually didn't rate restrooms as clean, but actually stalls and shower was fairly clean, but inviting appearance was terrible. The doors to get in were filthy and parts of inside above sinks needed paint or cleaning. I didn't take a shower as it just was not overall clean looking. But would stay here again if coming through as it is better than the KOA. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place is a way better value than the local KOA. The place is massive and there are lots of trees. The only down sides are that there are some long term RV's there that are some of the worst I have ever seen ! But if people need to live I am not the type to complain just because something is not nice to my eyes. People have a right to live the way they want to. The other down sides are NO POOL. The place is MASSIVE, why not sacrifice a few sites for a really nice pool. It was over 100 degrees and we were actually tempted to bring our kids to the KOA because it had a water park. The other down side is the 9 hole mini golf course which is a severe eyesore ! If I were them I would not even advertise it. I think $30 is high for any RV park but these days that seems to be a good price. I am going to rate this as a good campground for overnighting and for a base camp if you are in Great Falls. This is due to the friendly staff, nice big sites and good price for the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Easy to get to. Near lots of stores and restaurants. Good size site. Friendly staff. Restrooms very warm as they are in a trailer. No shade so it was very hot. Would probably stay here again as a short stopover. We had a pull thru site. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our biggest problem was finding the place. The map in our camp guide was most confusing. We found the campground to be clean and nice. Lots are nice size - you are not on top of the neighbor. Some nice large shade trees. We were camped by the back road entry - I would not want to be parked by the highway - it was very noisy. We felt the shower facilities could use a little TLC - new shower handles, replace burned out lights, etc. We enjoyed Great Falls and found it to be a pleasant tree lined town with quite a bit to do. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great park - wide streets, wide level sites with wide grassy area between sites. Some of the park is paved while part is gravel or processed asphalt. Friendly management! You are allowed to wash your rig for a small fee ($10 for both rig and tow car). We are here for a week - the price indicated is based on the weekly rate. Wi-fi is extra but excellent. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park for the money. Wifi excellent at only $2 per day. Cable same with 60 channels that work well for a change. Handy to the city centre and clean and tidy.Staff at front desk helpful and friendly. Would certainly stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We found this to be a very neat, clean RV park with wide, level pull thru sites. Interior roads are extra wide allowing plenty of swing room into and out of your site. Grass on all of the sites was green due to an underground sprinkler system that they run at night. Good WiFi - not free but cheap at only $2.00 per day. We found Great Falls to be a neat, clean small city with several interesting attractions. If you are there on a weekend don’t miss the huge downtown Farmer’s Market. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed at this campground during the Montana State Fair. The campground was busy but was never full. There is an older section to the park which has large trees & shade and a newer section with no shade & small trees. The restrooms are old single wide trailer & the shower stall was actually smaller than what we have in our motorhome. They do have a small laundry room on site but no other amenities. The staff was very helpful & knowledgeable about the area. There are a few things to do in Great Falls ( the Lewis & Clark Visitor Center & CM Russell home & gallery ) and this park is convenient to both of them. Nothing fancy but easy access and clean. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Someone gave this park a 10 - I'm hard pressed to give it an 8. There is nothing unusual about it. It looks tired - grass burned. Vegetation looks tired. Spaces are gravel, and grass is not edged. Old section has paved interior roads. The new section does not. Friendly people in the office. I made a reservation via the Internet and they answered - that was a first for me. Great Falls is a tired town - at least the part I saw. Lots of old, rusted, dirty cars. Trash is not picked-up. I would not stay here more then an overnight in my travels through Montana. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice place to stop over on the way to Canada. The noise wasn't a bit of a problem for us. The people were very nice - they have a crew that will wash your coach and tow for you. Nice, wide, open spaces - no trouble with our DirecTV or internet dish at all. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is well located if you need to be in Great Falls. It's not a place I would want to stay for an extended period, but offers all the necessary amenities for a park this close to the city. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It was a very nice park and would have gotten a higher rating if not for the location. 10th Avenue runs right beside the park - it is major street in the city and we were awakened all throughout the night by trucks and sirens. Even with the heater on in the rv, it was loud enough to disturb us. Not the place for a good night's sleep. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park has clean, wide, level sites (some paved) with good hookups. Staff is friendly and
helpful. Has both open sites (which we prefer for our satellite dish) and shaded sites for those who desire shade. Easy on and off highway.
We camped here in a Motorhome.
The best about this park is the staff. The store is well stocked. Other than that, don't bother. Very narrow sites that are difficult to get into and out of. WiFi is iffy and not available on the lower half. No swimming pool, no cable TV and local channels poor. Very expensive for what you get. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Sites too narrow and unlevel. Lots of "landscaping" boulders which clog the already too small roads. Lots of mud on the edges when it rained. Dead tree branches sticking out everywhere. The entire place was overgrown. Scratched the sides of our 38' motorhome trying to maneuver into a site that wasn't near big enough. NOT big-rig friendly at all (or medium sized for that matter). They should not allow any rigs over 30' in the place. We left after one night and went to another campground with enough room for our rig / car. Who ever designed this place only had tents in mind. Will never stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The staff here is very friendly and the park is located very conveniently for everything in town. Nice walking trail. But the sites are very close together and somewhat hard to maneuver. Also, it's very over priced for what you get. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground was okay. It had nice, shaded, but small spots. We were expecting a pool, thanks to the website, and instead found a water park type thing. Kids above the age of 6 wouldn't like it or be able to use it. The deepest point was about two feet. The Great Falls KOA had nice views and little gardens, no fruit or vegetables at the time, though. They had free firewood, which was convenient, and free cookies in the afternoon. We camped here in a Motorhome.
At first glance, the park is beautiful with lots of foliage. Our pull through spot turned out to not be full hook up, and short. There is not a lot of room between sites. Our neighbors smoked us out of our RV, trying to light a fire with wet wood right under our windows. It is difficult to reach electric and water hookups because of all of the shrubbery and railroad ties. The kids did enjoy the waterpark until a storm hit. The laundry was adequate. Much of the equipment was out of order or not working properly if it was in order. Pulling out of our pull through was difficult. The spots aren't long enough to park the vehicles in front of, or behind the trailers, so you have to park across the front or rear of the spot. Many vehicles have bumpers hanging out in the roads which can cause a problem pulling out of a spot. It was a tight squeeze to get out. We stayed here because we had a KOA discount card, but I would not stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very tight spots for 40' rig towing a car. Office staff advised to disconnect car before heading to spot. Helpful staff. Rental bikes all had flat tires. Would stay again if rate was closer to $35-$40. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beware of back-in sites because of over grown trees protruding into site. We got lucky and didn't back all the way into site - thereby missing a huge limb that would have taken out the top roof line of our RV. "Free firewood" was termite infested. Rose bushes, trees, landscaping all over grown. "Pool" area consists of an area that at most is 18" deep - fine for very tiny ones but older kids will not enjoy. Staff was friendly enough and this KOA needs much work. Hookups are shared and hard to access depending on how many plants/weeds are overgrown. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Quiet campground. Lots of landscaping between sites makes for very private feel. Great nature trail any city would be proud of. Off the street a few hundred yards means no road noise. It was 3 miles off the interstate down a main street in Great Falls or we would have given them 10/10. Great pool area for the kids. Playscapes too. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have camped here before but never again. It was overpriced before, but $50 for a tent site is ridiculous. We ended up moving to a cabin due to a storm and had no porch light and it took them until 11:30 pm to tell me they couldn't do anything about it. The bathrooms were not very clean and many were out of toilet paper and had overflowing wastebaskets. In past years they had been cleaner. This place has always had a problem with slow service, not enough people at their front desk during busy times and this year was even worse. If you are paying these prices you should expect faster service. And friendlier. We will stay in a hotel next time, never staying here again. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
The entrance is narrow, congested and unkempt. The interior roads are narrow with over grown shrubs and trees making it difficult to get to your site. There is little or no gravel just dusty road that are a mess when the wind blows and it blows every day in Great Falls. It is greatly over priced, worth less than half they charge. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is a nice enough campground but the rate is extremely high for what is there. We have stayed at similar campgrounds with very reasonable rates. We found the access very tight for parking fifth wheel trailer. The staff were very friendly. There is only one garbage dumpster for entire campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park, an older park with very narrow sites. The width of the sites is something to be desired, no room to stake out pets and spouses. Otherwise a great park, we spent two days just vegging out there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground amenities were very nice. Our children enjoyed the splash pool and playground. The store was well stocked and there was free firewood. The bathrooms were very clean. Navigating to the sites is very tight because the sites aren't very long, so trucks and trailers hang out into the road a little ways. We have a fifth wheel whose total length is just under 32 feet and a long-bed truck and we didn't fit in our site. When we went to our site we had to stop and ask someone to move their truck so we could get by. Unfortunately, while we were there a motor-home scraped a parked trailer, causing damage to both. There are bushes that separate the sites, which is nice for privacy, but doesn't leave room for much more than a picnic table. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We really enjoyed our stay at this campground. We have 3 kids under 10 and the waterpark was just perfect for them. Safe and shallow and not terribly busy even during the hot afternoon. The kids also liked feeding the chickens and renting the pedal bikes. The nightly entertainment was terrific and the pancake breakfast was delicious. We arrived in time for the July 4th fireworks display put on by the employees which was really well done. WiFi was inconsistent during our stay. The roads are gravel and really need to be paved. Potholes filled with water when it rained and the roads stayed muddy for days afterwards. The interior roads are tight and we saw several big units have difficulty getting in and out of their sites. We have a 35 foot fifth wheel but we were ok as we had one of the wider sites. Some sites are quite narrow and have a slope to them. Like most KOA's, this place is not cheap especially when paying for extra kids and a pet. However, if you have kids and are planning on staying for a few days, then this place is worth the extra money. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Let me say at the outset that we will stay here again, but only because of the tremendous bluegrass musicians who perform here nightly during the summer months. They are absolutely folk fest quality, and if you consider how much you would pay anywhere else to see them, the campsite becomes more economical. Besides that, the price they charge for this place is outrageous. (It would have been $70 without the KOA membership discount). The place just isn't that special. On the plus side, kids will love the (free) waterpark. On the minus side, management seems to have put lots of money into certain amenities (granite washroom countertops, quality landscaping around the rear of the office), but not into any of the campsites. The roads and campsites are desperately in need of gravel (the entire campground turns into a mudbowl when it rains), and the hookups at my site were well into the bushes. For $63 a night, I expect at the very least that "the basics" have been taken care of. Beyond "the basics", WiFi was down for our entire stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
If you have young kids, they'll like this place. But I thought $52 for water/electric was too expensive. I wish I would have stayed at Dick's instead, but didn't want to drive all the way back across town. Staff was great and the facilities were clean. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 5 / 10 ]
Nice campground with free firewood and friendly staff. Sites are small: our 10-man tent took up almost all of our site. Price was too expensive: they charged $49 a night for a tent, plus $7 for every person over 2 in the group. So 3 people cost $56 a night, in a tent! Although we all liked the campground, it became packed over the weekend and very noisy. Plus, they had hired some teens who made alot of noise in the early morning while working on the campsites around us, and they became rude when we asked them to be quiet. Got alot of stares for the remainder of the vacation for an over-priced campground. Other than the noise and high price, this campground has it all and we all enjoyed the veggies growing all about the grounds. Would go again, but the owners need to rethink prices: shouldn't try to get rich off tent campers. We camped here in a Tent.
[ 8 / 10 ]
Very friendly and helpful staff. An older KOA with small, but private spaces. Not Big Rig friendly, and at this rate they should have cable TV. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I liked this KOA and rate it a 7 (6.5?) overall but with some conditions. First if you are a “big rig” of any sort there are clearance issues top, bottom, and side, in most of the sites. Narrow roads, tight turns and untrimmed branches are the rule. A prior review would lead you to believe that the place is ugly which is not the case. Still the brush is a visual and operational detriment. Count on being led to your site by a cheerful, enthusiastic teen who may or may not have a clue about bus or trailer steering geometry. The good news is that once situated the sites are fairly private and separated from the neighbor. Given the amount of time and money they evidently spend on flower plantings I can’t understand the lack of tree trimming. Level is hit or miss and again very site dependent. If your bunking in a behemoth and value your paint job I’d advise a pre-entry golf cart ride to the proposed site to check your probability of getting in, They have good internet, a very well stocked store with a snack bar/soda fountain and of course the water park to engage the young. It’s suitable for sliding and splashing but not swimming. The 20+ miles of improved bike trails along the Missouri River are second to none in the US and reason enough to visit GF. The Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center is a gem. Free live music is offered for two hours in the evening. No cable-which at $50 a night is a little on the cheap side. We took a ride by the other RV facility listed for Great Falls and would pretty much agree with the reviews written about it. Given another trip to Montana we would return to GF KOA. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
An old KOA with tight turns and narrow spaces. The roads were in need of resurfacing. The showers and washrooms were very good. Friendly staff who moved us to an alternative site after a problem with the space required for the slide out and awning. We are unlikely to stop here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is overpriced unless your kids are under 10 so they can enjoy the small waterpark for the day. With two teenagers in tow, they wanted nothing to do with it. Other than that the rest of the park was typical KOA. The site was adequate with the stated features but nothing out of the ordinary. Even though we were close to the office we could only get the WiFi to work maybe 30% of the time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you value your RV, want water, cleanliness, or for that matter any kind of service at all, stay away from this dump. I should have just turned around and gone elsewhere when I saw that even the entry drive had not been properly maintained for big rigs with branches hanging down everywhere. The next clue should have been when we pulled up to our "site" and the branches were dead and hung down to about the 8' level. The roads and sites are grotesquely narrow for anything other than popups and short trailers. After the staff came and cleared out the overhead we pulled in. We were given assurances that we could pull through and out. This turned out to be blatant lies which we discovered once we had wedged ourselves into this inadequate site. While I had asked for an satellite friendly site, this was anything but. So I looked around the park and discovered unoccupied sites that were not so overgrown. I went to the office and they allowed me to change. That was when the fun began. It was impossible to pull out of this site! There was so much overgrown, dead, stiff vegetation that it was impossible. Added to this were stupid rocks and large stone planters used at the apexes of the sites for "decoration". After struggling for 45 minutes we were finally able to back out, but not without scratches all over the side of our motorhome. We then relocated to the other site with the hope that our troubles were over. Guess again. The water stopped working, the Wi-Fi stopped working, the pool area and hot tubs were filthy, and the evening "entertainment" was a pair of locals who shouldn't be allowed in front of mike. The vegetation on this campground is all dead with only green secondary growth. The old, hard dead wood sticks out everywhere to snag anything larger than a popup. They even treat the tent campers poorly. The tent campsites are all at the lower edge of the park so when it rains, they get drowned. Then, to really stick it to them, they water the tent sites for 12 hours even after a 2" overnight rain! When you add the fact that this park has not been re-paved (gravelled) for years, what you get is a sea of mud. To add insult to injury, this was the most expensive KOA we have ever stayed at. I have decided that KOA stands for KRAPGROUND of America. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We couldn't have been more disappointed with this KOA campground. When we checked in, we found they had assigned us a 37' pull-through site for our 38' motorhome towing a car. They appeared dumbfounded at my question as to what we were to do without the extra footage available. A young woman stepped forward and did manage to find us a longer site, but we barely fit. The site was extremely narrow with dead bushes and tree limbs that really needed pruning. Their web site said that they won an award in 2008, but we don't know what the criteria was to qualify. We will never stay there again or recommend it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is too big if you ask me. It is very busy. When you get there it is a tight squeeze to park by the office. The front of the office can only accommodate one or 2 check-ins. They have a nice water park but my son wanted to play in a pool and not get splashed by a bunch of wild kids. NO POOL :-( . I give a good rating because it is all that KOA is about and the reason we go in the first place. They might want to watch who they rent sites to though. When we were there, some punks were renting a cabin and they kept tearing up and down the roads the wrong way in a beat up Honda Accord. The punk driving the car had a face that was just begging to be punched! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This is a large beautiful RV park in a beautiful area. It is nicely landscaped with trees or bushes between every campsite. Firewood is provided for free. Freshly baked cookies are provided for free in the office. Wireless internet is free (with a code from the office), but some of their hotspots seemed to be having problems during my visit, so I experienced some difficulties accessing it from my site. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The Great falls KOA is one of the nicest KOAs I've ever stayed in. It's a little pricey, but the experience was wonderful. Lots of shade, a water park, fruit trees and vegetable gardens (pick what you want), daily pancake breakfast with locally made chokecherry syrups, free firewood delivered to our site. If you stay be sure and catch the free nightly Bluegrass performance. We were there over the Fourth of July and the owners put on a huge fireworks display. Bravo! An excellent experience. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

Kids waterpark was a hit. Sites are short but managable. Best bathrooms we had in a 16 day trip by far - hotel quality. Give them a try when in Great Falls - Nice Folks! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
The kids enjoyed the pool and waterpark except that there were lots of sticks, bees and bugs floating in it. The free cookies were a big hit and were delicious! The bathrooms and laundry were clean. The laundry was a bit pricey. The sites were private and separated by hedges so you weren't on top of your neighbor. The firewood was free which was a nice treat. The staff were all friendly, polite and helpful. The pancake breakfast was also a nice treat but a little expensive if you wanted anything other than pancakes. I found 4 dead birds in and around our site but once they were reported to the office someone came and took them away. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very tight sites. Your neighbor can look into your rig and their campfire pit is 6ft away from the slideout. We only stayed here one night. Most staff was friendly, the assistant manager was rude, bossy and was nasty! Be certain you have an extension cord and an extra hose handy, the hookups are at the end of the drives far away. Vegetation was way overgrown and scraped the sides of the trailer getting into the site. Can't unroll awning, not enough room. Very dusty ! One of the lower-end KOA's out there. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice. Lots of vegetation that could be cut back a little. Extremely friendly staff and well stocked store. Stayed in a 38' MH, and turns were a little tight and hard to avoid bushes. Site was level and park was well maintained. Although pricy, would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed in what I would consider one of the nicer sites very close to the office. Very well treed in our spot though I would agree with others that they need to trim the bushes back somewhat and was fairly dusty. Firepits situated far too close to the trailer. Fairly difficult time leveling the trailer compared to most we've been to. Very nice waterpark/pool area for kids though water was far too cold to enjoy for long. Campground store was well stocked. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
They took our reservation for a 40 foot 5th wheel. They showed us two sites that were absolutely unacceptable. We drove into one site and were lucky to get out. They showed us another that we wouldn't have fit into either. If you have a big rig, I would recommend going elsewhere, which is what we needed to do. We normally like KOA but this one couldn't accommodate us. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We just camped here one night and it was okay, but very dusty. Our site was level but saw a lot of campers/motorhomes who really seemed to have problems leveling. We camped here in a truck/camper and probably would not stay here again, even though Staff friendly and helpful. A water park is available for people with children so that could be a plus for a family who need something to entertain the little ones. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
While this is a great RV park if you need activities for kids (they do have a small water park), it's way over priced if you're not using these amenities when compared to other RV parks in this general area. It has a very nice woodsy / campground feel, but unfortunately the vegetation is overgrown to the point of being a problem for larger rigs. Many of the pull-through sites are difficult to get into or out of due to the narrow roadways, tight row spacing, and overgrown vegetation. When pulling our 43' long travel trailer - tow vehicle combination out of our site, heavy branches from the overhanging trees left heavy scratches down the side of our 25' travel trailer. Our pull-through site was also very unlevel in two different directions, requiring leveling blocks, etc. The upside to this park is that lots of staff were present, are efficient, and very friendly. And while I won't recommend you avoid this park (unless you have a large rig), I doubt we'll stay here again mainly due to the price and tight spaces. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park has shady sites. The campground is located on site at the Montana State Fairgrounds. The roads are gravel, the sites are not level, but usable. The sites are not paved and this year they are muddy. The bathrooms/shower are located in the livestock pavilion. They are adequate at best, there is a lingering odor of livestock and we just cleaned the showers ourselves before use. There are many permanent residents and workers. We stayed here because the other affordable park was booked and another quoted us a $95/night price tag. This one was $150/week. We camped here in a Motorhome.
