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

The park was very clean and in close proximity to the Old Prison and museums. Also the car museum as well. We stayed here two days one to unwind and one to tour Deer Lodge. Nice park, very friendly staff as well. - shar44

This park is conveniently located half way between Yellowstone and Glacier. Access was reasonable, although you have to look to find the entrance. Roadways were gavel and plenty wide. Pull through spaces were long enough and level. BUT: power was bad. On 50Amps, our EMS kept resetting because of low voltage on one leg. By turning off AC we were able to stay the two nights we had booked. But we would not stayb here again. - jOHNONTHEROAD

This is a very convenient park right off I-90. Large spacious lots with gravel pads and a sturdy picnic table! We did not have to unhook the toad. The WiFi is useless, but we had great cell service, so created a hotspot. The staff was friendly and efficient. You do get coupons for Subway, 4B's restaurant and 76 gasoline. Not a lot of shade! Only drawback is the neighbor 4 lots down with a larger than life Confederate flag. Very uncomfortable. - Lezgo

Overnight stay en-route to Idaho. Sites were close but adequate and services worked fine. Staff was friendly and helpful. - Nodaker

KOA should get the owner to train other KOA owners. Very well laid out and maintained. It was nice to be treated as a customer. Would stay here again and highly recommend it. - whit gentry

We stayed here last year (see my 7/16 review for a more detailed description of the park). Again, we had a FHU site that was satellite friendly. this is a small, quiet riverside park within walking distance of the center of town. The bath and laundry facilities are adequate. Typical of the area, I saw no recycling. - Jerry S

New owners took over 3 weeks ago. Very nice guy working hard. Previous owners let it get very rundown. Presently only electric but good and strong. All other parks in Helena were full so I was looking at spending a 100 degree afternoon on Wal-Mart's blacktop parking lot. I saw the sign for this park about 9 miles south of Helena so pulled in hoping for the best. Only 2 trailers in park. I called number posted on bathroom and owner said pick any site and he would be by later. I picked site K right next to a flowing creek that was big enough for my 37' 5th wheel unhooked with truck parked next to it. 6 sites along creek. Some sites are around a grassy area that could also fit longer trailers. A.C. is working great and keeping me cool. No water and sewer right now but owners working on getting fresh water well working. 1 outhouse that I didn't check out. For self contained vehicles this is an easy overnight stop with great electric. Lots of weeds and long grass in park right now but should be taken care of by new owners soon. You have to drive across a little bridge to access park. My trailer weighs 12000 lb plus dually F350 and bridge is still up. There are also a few sites before bridge if you think you are too heavy. Or check with owner on weight rating of bridge. The Interstate is very close on one side and a two lane road on the other side so turn the fan or ac on for white noise. Again nothing fancy here but would work if FHU parks are full. I would stay here again. - Saddle Tramp 65

A recent detour on our way to South Dakota brought us to the attention of this small RV Park. The owner and manager were extremely hospitable. While mostly a self service park - perfect for overnight guests - we planned a much longer stay. Many of the park residents appear to be of the permanent variety, but most appeared friendly. Clean showers, rest rooms and laundry facility exist, but with heavy rains, the gravel sites and roadways transform into rivers and lakes.
A generous cable lineup along with more than adequate Wi-Fi round out the few amenities, but overall, you really can't beat the price for a monthly stay ($360).
Should fate ever again send us a detour this way, we'd certainly stay here again. - Todd and Heather

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

KOA prices without the KOA quality. This is a sad, dilapidated campground with bumpy roads and pads and lots of weeds. The customer service was friendly, but the whole place just gives you the impression that they have quit trying. In comparison to other KOA parks, the pool was very small and there is no cable TV. In the area where I was parked, there were shared pedestals and the pads were quite close together. My driver's side slide was about 18" from that of the RV next to me. I saw two people whose slides were actually past the shared utility post, forcing the second person into the spot to move off the pad onto the grass to get their own slides out. It seems this was not being policed by the staff. The wifi was decent and the Verizon signal strong. Alas, if you want to visit Butte, a darling little town, this is really your only option, as the other park in town is farther out, even more shabby, and only a few dollars less per night. There was traffic noise from the nearby highway, but it was only really annoying at night when everything else was quiet. I wouldn't recommend this as an overnight stop, unless you want to visit Butte. - KAP99

This small-to-medium sized RV park is very convenient to the Interstate and to all services in Butte MT. The office management was very helpful and pleasant, and we saw them going out of their way to help other RVers in the park. Our site had a small tree providing some afternoon shade, though some do not. Navigation in the park is easy, and sites are wide. We had a gravel site with good hookups. The WiFi was excellent as was our Verizon signal. We just stayed one night so did not use the bathrooms or laundry room. This is an excellent RV park which we would happily visit again! - RobtL

This is our third stay here. The first two times we were in the front and it was ok. This time we were in the back. NO grass, other RV's may have been there long term. E/W worked well. We were not given the wifi pass word. Feel as though we were overcharged. - Skipp

Nice quiet campground close to Butte, MT. You do get some highway noise but you have easy access to explore the area. The staff were friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay again if we are driving through. The inner sites alternately face each other as utilities between sites are at one location - Dredep
