More than overnighting would be too much. The train runs through the night. What makes it so loud is that it's crossing a bridge adjacent to the camp. Good power, good Wi-Fi, good cable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you are sensitive to noise, don't stay here. Between the trains (which do indeed shake your rig, if you're in one of the sites that back up to the river) and the semi's that idle near the motel, it's loud. However, if you can sleep through anything, it's not a bad place to spend the night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very expensive for what is basically a vacant lot under a railroad trestle. Did I mention the mosquitoes? Great honking hoards of bloodsuckers breeding like mad in the Milk River (hence the name "Edgewater"), a sluggish brown slough that meanders through the town of Malta. My legs were covered within ten seconds of exiting the vehicle. My wife kept them off while I made the hookups. The cable connection's threads were stripped, which made for much merriment. During the five seconds it took us to re-enter the motorhome, at least 20 made it inside, making life unpleasant at 2:00 a.m. when the two we didn't find earlier came a-calling. The evening's entertainment was made complete by the freight trains that came barreling across the trestle at all hours. Despite the other comment, our motorhome did indeed shake, and the noise was deafening. All in all, a most unpleasant stay, and we would not camp there again. On the plus side, the dinosaur museum in Malta, Montana, is tops. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is adequate as long as you get one of the pull-thru, full hook-ups with cable. It has little to offer other than a place to spend the night while traveling on US 2 across northern MT. The bath/laundry facility was small, dated, and a bit dirty. Next time I'll try one of the parks in Havre or Glasgow. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Full hookups with cable was nice. The spots are too narrow and to make it even more difficult to get into your compartments, there are rail fences on both sides of the site. Frequent trains right at the campground - stones throw from your campsite. Expensive for what it is. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you love trains, you'll love this place!! It's behind a motel, right on Hwy 2, about 200 yards from a r/r trestle. Not quite close enough to shake the motorhome, but close enough that you definitely hear them!! Wi-fi works great--best of the year so far! Front desk people very friendly. Don't plan to getting a satellite signal for your TV, but a few sites have cable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice for the area. Frequent trains run just 200 feet away. Strong, free wi-fi and cable TV. Long, shady sites behind the motel. Clean and safe feeling here. Indoor heated pool. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a small park with about 6 spaces for big rigs; all grass and fairly long, back-in only. Fairly expensive for what you get. Park also includes a motel. The whole place looks like it has seen better days and a “for sale” sign is posted in front of the office. The electricity (50amp) was fine, but the sewer and water connections were the worst we have seen in 8 years of RVing. They are fairly new, but are installed underground using a “green box” which is typically used for yard irrigation valves. The spigot is right next to the sewer opening only inches away. If someone mistakenly spilled some sewage in the box, it would easily contaminate the spigot. Given the spigot sees no daylight, it is continuously wet and gross. We chose not to connect our water to the system due to this really bad design. The park is easy to get to (just off US2) and is near the local dinosaur museum (worth a visit). Wi-Fi was very good. It is adjacent to a large dusty city park, also somewhat rundown. There are busy train tracks nearby and is fairly close to downtown Malta. Staff was helpful. Probably would not stay here again unless there was no other choice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a no-frills, adequate place to spend the night. Malta is a somewhat run-down town, but Riverside's parking spaces are large with easy turnaround for RVs. Park is adjacent to a small playground for the kids. Clean shower and bathhouse. Walking distance from a restaurant and Dairy Queen. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very small RV park next to a small motel. The campsites were long enough to stay hooked to the truck and we had full hookups that worked great. They said they had just put in brand new 50amp electric and all the hookups look new. We selected our own site and it backed up to some cottonwood trees and even though the train went by on a very regular basis all night, it wasn't a huge problem. There is a bathhouse with one large private bathroom and shower but we used our own facilities. The owner was pleasant. Check in was very quick and easy. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great stop for a night or two. The sites are deep and back up to large Cottonwood trees. It is next door to a rest area and a city park and there is a walking trail along the river. There are 30 & 50 amp full hookups that are newer and are in good condition. Plenty of room for big rigs if you can back in. We did not see any rest rooms, you may have to be self contained. The park was clean and quiet, a few trains in the distance. The Wi-Fi worked well. Check in was fast and friendly and we were able to pick our site. We would stay here again without hesitation. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a more-than-adequate RV stop-over park along Highway 2 in Malta, Montana. It was far enough away from the RxR tracks to not be kept awake by train noise. There were large shade trees, and the sites were grassy and level. Across the road was the city park and ball field. There was only one bathroom/shower, but it was spotless. We'd stay here again if passing through MT. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Variety of grassy Back In sites to 60+ Ft Long and Level. Across the highway from the Railroad. No Tables. Easy access to sites. Two TV stations on our set. Free Wi-Fi. Single large Bathroom with shower and toilet. No Laundry yet but hookups are in the same building. Bathroom not handicap friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is not a campground. It is a city park that allows camping in any empty area you choose to use. There is no attendant. No hookups, but water faucets are located throughout the park. The local kids use the park as a playground and why not? It's a park. The night we were there, one of the local hoodlums was riding around the park on his motorcycle at 3:30 AM but took off when the sheriff's deputy arrived for one of his periodic security tours through the park. A sewage lift station in the park was undergoing repairs and the crew arrived at 7:00 AM and cranked up their contractor generator. The Milk River makes a horseshoe bend around the campground. We walked up on the levee to get a view and saw where about a dozen rusted automobiles had been pushed over the levee on the far side. Some guy was doing wheelies on his ATV down Main Street. Hey, this is the Wild West, right? To put this all in perspective, this camping experience was slightly better than Wal-Mart's parking lot and the price was only $3.00 more. If you decide to stay here, have a nice steak dinner at the Great Northern Restaurant. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a city park. It was adequate for a place to get off the highway for the night and get some sleep. And the price was right. Sites are not marked, so you have to look around for a place that suits you. There are about 4 places that a big rig would fit. Ours was the only RV there. There were several tenters. It was quiet when we were there, but there are playgrounds and ball fields, so it could get busy and noisy sometimes, but would probably be quiet at bedtime. Trafton Park is on US-2. Look for the rest area sign in Malta. Follow road to rest area. Trafton Park is behind the rest area. Stay to the right to avoid low hanging tree limbs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
