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

Just an overnighter. This is a wide and comfortable park. - BL Ford

We have stayed here before and always appreciate the long sites and good access to them. Some highway noise but not to bad at night, mostly depending on site location within the park. Pleasant check in and the park is very neat and clean. The only the small annoyance was discounts for memberships in various groups are featured in the park web-site and then find out at check-in that the discount is only available if you take a small site with only 30 amp service. Not a deal breaker for us because we think the value is still OK for the amenities offered. We just think that it is a little misleading. That being said, we would stay here again. - run2

Used this as an overnight stopover, but weren't disappointed. Close to I-90 but not as noisy as might be expected.
Would stop again. - grandflic

The owner was great, very friendly and answered all our questions about area and our next leg. We spent 2 nights as a break from long travel days. Pretty quiet area once the city works shop next door shut down for the weekend. Campground is in town so there wasn't any highway noise. There is a rail line but I never heard a train so it must not be a main line. Entrance is a bit odd as it is a city Street shared by surrounding residents and their vehicles/RV's narrow the road. Their dogs bark at all hours which is a disturbance. This is a small campground and about half the sites back to a river and are shorter then needed for larger rigs. So while we were there that part had only 1 rig while all the larger sites were full, thereby making it somewhat crowded. Owner does a fine job keeping the place up and appeared to be alone doing it. - RV'er

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 stayed in Butte for 3 nights. The office staff was very friendly...we were happy that they let us choose a space that was comfortable for us. The camp host guided us to our space. The spaces are fairly close but not terrible...we chose an end spot for that reason, even though it was right on a mildly busy road...not so much that the noise bothered us, though. We had a nice view of the Angel of Butte and of the historic town on the hill. It was very handy that there is some great fried chicken sold in the little take out place by the office. The cg looks like it is being upgraded. Overall, we had a good time in the awesome little town of Butte and would definitely stay at this cg again! - Jenono16

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

This is a great stop if you need easy access for one night. We were pleasantly surprised by the nice bathrooms and great showers. There is some road noise but that is to be expected as the interstate is close by. But it's quieter than the truck stop right down the road! The managers were very polite. We stayed here on our way in and out of Montana. - Spirit Creek Farm

This is kind of a two part park. The front sites look to be well maintained, while the back sites are mostly weeds with very little gravel over dirt. At $37.00 this park is waaay overpriced. Just not much else available in the area. - wow

Small park - we looked at it on Google Earth - it looked better from an aerial view than actually being there. Gravel site; we are fairly long, and the site they gave us was towards the back and not remotely level. Plenty of road noise from I-90. We were just looking for a place for an over-night and it was adequate. My feeling is it is over-priced for what you get. - DreamCaptn
