Good park on the river. Wifi only in restaurant. Restaurant is good. I recommend this park. - BigDawg1

Had called ahead for reservation. Requested pull-thru, 50 amp full hookup. Told no problem, last one available. Well, checked in at restaurant and was told our site was 30 amp with water and electric only. Not what we requested but just one night so no big deal. Then to try and maneuver our 40' motor coach through campground and around other campers and trees -not happening. Ended up backing into site after unhooking tow vehicle. Not ideal but worked. Restaurant on site was awesome and the river was pretty but a lot of noise from I-90 on one side and trains on the other. - Dedra C

This is the second year I have spent Labor Day weekend here because it seems never to be busy. There is a LOT of traffic noise but is otherwise an OK NFS campground with level sites and a nature trail [loop C]. Big rigs can find very long pull-though sites in loop A. - mockturtle

We stopped at the rest area and was surprised to discover it was also an exit to get to this NF campground. The campground has Loop G on the eastbound side, and loops A & C on the westbound side. Loop G seems pretty open with a train track running directly behind it, and trains honk their horns passing by so I don't recommend staying this side - even the camp host site is empty. There is a 14' tunnel under the interstate that can get you to the other side. Loop A has pull-thru sites for big-rigs and some lovely back-in sites along the river with more foliage for privacy. We picked site A20 and there's no site to the left and spacious room to the next site on the right, and on the back edge of our site is a big drop to see the river down below - very pretty. Each site somes with picnic table and fire pit. Free firewood is provided to use as well! It's dry camping, but for the view and $10/night, we decided to stop here and stayed 2 nights! Vault toilets are available, water spigots, recycle bins, and dump station with potable water, no showers. A few other RVers took the trail down to the river to bathe in their swimsuits in the hot afternoons. I would stay here longer (14 day max) if I didn't have a reservation to get to. I heard this campground is only open during summer months. Lastly, we work online so Verizon LTE data coverage is important, and we get strong signal here. I didn't give it a full 10-stars only because there is road-noise from the interstate and rest stop (trucks running their generators at night), so hopefully your vehicle has some sound protection or you're a heavy sleeper. We kept our windows open at night and noise didn't really bother us. - Sara C.

This campground is divided. The 'C' loop, where I stayed, is on the opposite side of the freeway from the other loops. You approach it through a tunnel which has adequate clearance [14'] for RVs. The sites are fairly narrow in C loop but are paved and many are level. Not very private, in that the trees provide shade but there is little underbrush. There is a dump station and fresh water fill near the C-loop entrance. Excellent Verizon signal. Lots of traffic noise and some trains. Would stay here again. Price reflects senior pass. - mockturtle

Nice little forest service campground to spend the night. No hookups. We were in a 32 foot Class A pulling a car. There were a number of pull through spots big enough that we didn't have to unhook. Has a nice feeling of being in the middle of nowhere. I consider that a good thing. A little traffic noise was the only negative. - Russell G

This was a one night stay. Spaces are close to each other we stayed in the back loop close to the water. No sewer hook up but they do have a station.
It was quiet for most part my wife heard live music at times from across the street. The restroom and showers need attention. Not bad for the money but needs attention. - mcomeaux

This is a Forest Service campground. Very nice paved access roads and about 10 pull through sites. Tables and fire rings at most sites. Quiet but immediately adjacent to the Lolo Pass Highway 12. 15 miles west of Lolo. Nothing fancy but a great outdoor experience. You need to be self contained but there are pit toilets and water spigots available. - rncordy

This is an OK park. We found it a bit cramped and the facilities seemed dated. There are definitely nicer campgrounds here but this one was fine for an overnight stop. Utilities all worked well although the placement of the sewer at the far rear edge of the site was very odd. We had planned to stay hooked up for the night but the site had too much uphill slope so had to disconnect the truck from the fifth wheel. - Tech5709

We stayed on the dry camps as the place was full. It is just a field without anything at all. Used the showers and the laundry both were clean. Dump station is in a poor location, interferes with traffic in the
park, but it did work well. - Brian & Corky

We showed up without reservations but they did find a place for us in an overflow field, which was nice of them. However, this field and only one gate to get in and out and the RV park had trailers and other vehicles and equipment parked in the way inside this area and people were having a terrible time getting out the next morning.....there was no system at all for parking in that area, everyone one on their own and that part was a mess....we were tired and it was a place to park for the night. There was no power available in the overflow area. - Butch and Deb

For this four-night visit to Missoula, we decided to try someplace new and stay here at Jim and Mary's in our 25' travel trailer. The park is lovely, with many large trees and well kept with lovely large, tended flower beds, and asphalt interior roads. The park has the appearance more of a state or national park with the generous spacing between campsites. Very convenient to Missoula.
The park has been around a long time, with the region growing around it, resulting in one of the negatives for this park. The park is not far from I-90 off the exit for the primary route to Kalispell, Flathead Lake, and Glacier National Park. Convenient, yes, but it's also the source of significant traffic noise. Similarly, the campground is only a couple of hundred yards from a tight curve of the major national railway, with every train squealing around that curve, and some trains finding a need for horns in the middle of the night. Neither of these issues are the fault of the park, but they are a reality for the visitors. For me, a light sleeper, these were issues; for my wife, a deep sleeper, they weren't an issue at all.
One of my issues with most parks is the lack of interest in providing decent WiFi - yes, they have it, but no, it's not really usable. Jim and Mary's RV Park is still using wireless G, the standard of a decade ago. They have a policy disallowing streaming. They have no plans to upgrade.
This speaks to a blind spot in their customer service. While we were there, the WiFi suddenly stopped working. However, since we were out all day, we always got back after office hours, which are 8am to 6pm, when most people are out visiting the area. So were weren't told that the password had changed. I was directly told by the manager that she wanted to tell everyone directly of the change so she could see who was using the service. Customer service mean "about the customer" not about anything else.
So mostly this place is great, but with notable deficiencies. - jclifton

OK park, rating it as average because nothing stands out to me. Spaces not to tight but close to each other, sites were level and ez to get to. Large truck stop at exits to fuel up. (not so close to create noise) Would stay here again but probably as a one night stay. - abqnm

Jim and Mary's is a great RV site, with a few minor exceptions. This site is exceptionally well maintained, groomed and landscaped. The grass is actually green and taken care of, the flowers are nicely planted and kept up and the trees are mature. The spots are pretty level and it's a nice park.
Despite some negative reviews about the staff, our only interaction with them was nice, they were friendly and accommodating. We couldn't get the cable to work so I cannot comment about that.
The Wi-Fi is pretty much atrocious. If you have any hopes of getting online then use your own hotspots or cell phone. Remember dial-up? Divide that by 4.
This RV park isn't perfect but it's better than most. There are a few exceptions that cause me to rate it lower than 5 stars.
During the day the park is so quiet you wonder if anyone is even there! We stayed two nights, on the first night a train came through pretty close by at about 11:45PM, blowing it's whistle repeatedly. On the first morning about 4:30AM the train ran through again, waking us up. The second morning the train ran about 4:00AM and then again about 6:00AM and the trash pickup about 6:30AM.
If I were rating this on the park, the staff, the grounds and the general daytime experience of our stay it would be 5 stars! But the regular "wake up calls" force me to rate it a bit lower than that.
The moral of the review is that this is a really nice park, one of the nicer parks we have stayed at, but bring earplugs for sleeping. - CORockies

This is a National Forest Service (NFS) campground 26 miles west of Lolo, Montana on Highway 12. It is a typical NFS campground - rustic, no hookups or any other amenities. What is unusual are the wide paved roads and large sites which could accommodate large rigs. Trees do not interfere with navigating through this campground and parking in the sites. If you are a Lewis & Clark buff following their trip through the Bitterroot Mountains, this is a great place to park if you are equipped to dry camp for a few days. If I were comparing this campground to other NFS campgrounds, I would give it a rating of 9 or 10. - Comdac

This park seems well managed and maintained. We opted for a deluxe pull thru site which is essentially two older sites made into one that gives you an extra space to park your toad or tow vehicle. The driveway are paved and easy to navigate. The pad is gravel with grass, a picnic table and fire ring. The utilities were convenient and worked well. The WiFi is the best we have experienced to date. We are able to not only able to do email but we could also watch short videos if we wanted. The staff is helpful and friendly. - 2WArvers

This KOA is one of the best parks we've stayed in. Friendly staff, clean bathrooms and laundry. They offer a full breakfast buffet each morning and ice cream in the evening, in season. Our site was a deluxe with ample space for our motorhome and tow. All utilities worked well. Park is located near shopping and restaurants. The grounds crew here deserves recognition, flowers every where, beautiful grounds. Well done, thank you for a great stay. - LarryB

Very clean, well-manicured, well-staffed, everyone was very friendly and helpful. Great playground for the kids and free pony rides on Fridays in summer. We got the deluxe site which includes a separate parking space for your vehicle and a grassy area with picnic table and fire ring in between. This KOA is tucked away off the main drag in a quiet area with lots of big trees. Showers and bathrooms were very clean, wifi connection was good. Would stay here again. - Sasquatch2
