Everything was wrong, dangerous and caused us damage to vehicle and to leave with no place to go. We reserved 50 amp, shaded and back in. They directed us in wrong way. It was not 50 amp. The site could not accommodate us, owners moved us in wrong direction nearly over a boulder, tree limbs hit and hurt top of RV, 2 hours of them tying to kick someone else out to give us their spot and people who tried to help, then owner decided to cut tree limb down where it hit floor 3 inches from our car. If we took the vehicle up the hill to office we never could have turned around, probably would have needed a tow truck. Worst place ever in 3 years, left in tears with a sick spouse. After they tried to double charge us for a single night as we cancelled the 3 nights, she offered us for free. We chose to have nowhere to go at night in busy season rather than be next to open cook fires and all the laundry lines with exposed underwear. - rvalways

This is a fairly clean park, though I found trash at my site. There's distant traffic noise, even at night.
The 9 pull-through sites (30-39) are long, wide, unshaded, near-level gravel and dirt. Each has a concrete pad with a picnic table. There are also dirt back-in sites among the trees along a creek. These are in various sizes, shady, and not level. Not all the back-in sites have sewer connections or picnic tables. Voltage is good.
Roads are gravel or asphalt, in fair condition with some potholes.
Verizon LTE works well.
WiFi is strong at the recreation hall; I measured 126.8 kB/s down. WiFi was not usable at my site.
Terrestrial broadcast TV: CBS, CW. No VHF weather radio.
Laundry: 2 top-loaders ($2), 2 dryers ($1 for 45 minutes). The dryers are slow; I needed 2 passes to get my clothes dry.
There are 2 private showers for the park, one accessible, meaning a seat and rails, not roll-in. $0.25 buys 3 minutes in the non-accessible shower but 2 minutes in the accessible shower. There is no way to adjust the water temperature. Sometimes I put in my quarter but got no water.
One morning the sewer overflowed. This was very quickly fixed, but I'd avoid site 30, which seems to be a low point.
Owners and staff are friendly and helpful.
The park is on the opposite side of I-15 from the town of Basin. - wjzcbn

Price reflected includes Good Sam discount. We were here for only one night, so didn't check out the amenities. Check-in was friendly. Coupons were given for the Conoco station next door (2 cent discount on fuel) and 4Bs Restaurant (think it was 10% discount). Park is big rig friendly, easy in/out. Interior roads and sites are gravel. Long, pull-throughs available. New gravel had been placed in some of the sites, but it still needed to be compacted a bit more. Our front leveler punched through. Not all sites have picnic tables. Verizon service, both data and cell, worked well. We didn't use the park internet. Cable TV is $3 extra per day. Park looked clean and well maintained. If you have a not so well insulated rig, the sound from the trucks at the truck stop might bother you. We would stay again if passing through the area. - Guinness

There have full hook ups, with very clean bathrooms. Chose 30 amp site because it was cheaper than a 50 amp site. Good power. We received coupons for a nearby gas station (Conoco) and restaurant (4Bees). Open sky for TV reception (could have used cable at 50 amp site). Free WiFi that worked pretty well. Easy access to level sites. Well cared for campground. Helpful staff, they even let us choose a site of those available. - TJElser

$35 price reflects inclusion of $3 fee for cable TV...$32 bucks without it.
Surprisingly nice camp next to a truck stop as others have said. Level, long sites, clean bathrooms and good wifi & cable. Walk to dinner at 4B's in the Truck stop or pick up McD's across the street. This is a good stop between Yellowstone/Grand Teton's western entrances and Glaciers Western entrance. - Camaraderie

Campground nestled just off a city street. Turning into the CG looks like you're entering a junk yard but right behind is the CG. Entrance road narrow so swing wide in the street to help align your entry. Take exit 187 from I-90, into Deer Lodge, MT, turn left on Milwaukee. Watch for little "KOA" sign high up on a lamp-post on left side of road - turn right. Friendly staff. Credit cards accepted. CG roads are crushed gravel, no trees, no obstacles, gentle turns. FHU-20/30/50. Sites vary, some back-in "shorties", longer pull-thrus, well-kept grass between sites, level with pedestal slightly forward of mid-rig. Sewer cap below ground level. No patio. Picnic tables. Good satellite reception. County prohibits fires due to dry conditions. No firewood sales. Good water pressure and taste. Small office store with snacks, trinkets, some RV necessities. Restrooms/showers - not inspected. No propane sales. Laundry available 24/7. No playground. No cable TV. Free Wi-Fi with good connections. Good Verizon coverage. Cabins available. No noise. Bug Report: Tree wasps (look like bees) getting ready for their winter die-off (nuisance). No recycling. - StephenK

Interior roads and site pads were gravel with relatively adequate spacing. Since the CG wasn't full, they left empty sites between campers. Restrooms and laundry were clean and the staff was pleasant and friendly.
They have a recycle container. Noise was low and security wasn't needed (small town). The CG is right in the town of Deer Lodge just down from their only traffic light. - FreeWheeler

We came through Helena on a Saturday looking for a campsite. Well, the fair was in town and all of the sites were full. We found this place on the map and phoned. The gal had site 1 available for 2 nights. This is the only full hookup site. The site is uneven and wide open. Water pressure is good and this is a 50 amp site. To get into the site we had to take the trailer over a rickety bridge, through a bunch of low hanging branches, and around a loop to get faced in the correct direction. There was no place to turn around without making that move. We have a 36' trailer. It is a bit overpriced for what you get but it was quite satisfactory. They do not have showers and just an outhouse for a restroom. However, it's clean, does not smell, and is adequate. The location is very good as it's right next to a river. The manager is wonderful and very helpful and friendly. We would stay here again. Keep in mind that this place is perfect for small RVs but very difficult for big rigs. - Toby Maxx

Great place for a 1 night stopover enroute to Glacier. Trout fishing in the creek is always pretty decent too. No showers available. Right off I-15, but no issues with noise at night. We'll be back! - B-Rad502

This is really odd. We would not ordinarily stay in a campground located between a freeway and a frontage road, but we like this place and it compares very favorably to other campgrounds in the area. There are nice willow shade trees and Prickly Pear Creek runs through; some sites are on the creek. The freeway traffic is minimal after 10 PM and we were not bothered by freeway noise during the night. We stayed 3 months in 2003 and 5 days in 2008. We will stay here again. - meanderingman

We paid for a premium site. What a joke. We were so close to our neighbors we couldn't even use our grill. There was not a blade of grass, just dirt and rocks. What I didn't understand was why there were other sites that were wider, nicer, with grass yet they jammed us with others into a part of the park when there were other options. - NancyKurimay

Only had premium site available. Definitely nothing premium about it. We paid more here than any other rv park that we have stayed. Dirt piles lying around. Gravel dirt roads very bumpy. Verizon and Dish worked well. Park Wifi good. - Lindsey2

Nice clean park just off the freeway. Sites were level with good utilities. Wifi worked well and the staff was very pleasant. One nice addition was that the park had a small take out restaurant which was very good, especially after a long day's drive. Would stay again. - nmunozjr

Stayed for 1 week. Quiet park, mostly short-term. Wi-Fi was very spotty, good in the early a.m. You can hear traffic from I-15, but it didn't bother us. - Karen - Rick

This is a pretty good overnight stop for us, being very close to I-15/I-90 on the way south. The park appears to concentrate on long-term residents. We had a nice little patch of green grass with a picnic table and enjoyed the WiFi. Our site was nice and level and long enough that we did not have to unhitch.
It's just to the west of Butte on the feeder road and signage isn't very good. There's no pool or recreational activities. It's a little close to the highway, but since we run the fan the noise didn't bother us. - Paul Elliott

This is good for a overnight. Lots of long term people here. Sites are kind of close, but were clean and all utilities worked. Would stay here again for a quick overnight. - C and T
