This campground was neat and tidy, the owners helpful and friendly, washrooms clean, sites spacious. We had some difficulty (our own fault) parking in our assigned site. The owner was very accommodating in getting us situated. Quiet and peaceful - a wonderful, relaxing place to stay. We camped at Fort Ponderosa RV resort in a Travel Trailer.
Ok for an overnight, but would look elsewhere if possible. Full hookups have no shade. Partial hookups are shaded. While the owners/managers are friendly, there are a fair amount of long term stays in this park, with their trailers in various states of (dis)repair. Clean laundry room is a plus. The train is definitely loud and close. We camped at Fort Ponderosa RV resort in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is quaint and rustic and a good spot for small RVs and tents. Their idea of a big-rig spot is the road next to their building. Laundry room was filthy and 2 of 4 driers were out of order. Owners have only been in business one year. Park needs much grooming, trimming, etc. We would not likely stay again. We camped at Fort Ponderosa RV resort in a Motorhome.
The park is in disrepair and is mostly full time residents. It is for sale and has not been maintained. Owner is friendly and it was quiet, but we would not stay here again. There is also road construction and we had to take a long detour to get here. They had recent flooding, so there are large ruts in road. We camped at Fort Ponderosa RV resort in a Travel Trailer.

I chose this campground as an alternative to staying at one in Great Falls. A 25 minute drive into the city, it served as a good base for exploring the area. This nicely treed, older campground could definitely use improvements to its power, water, and sewer systems. However, it is for sale by the resident owner which probably speaks for the minimal investment being made in the property. Although 9 full hookup sites are advertised, none were available when I visited – all appeared to be occupied by long-term residents. There are only 4 water/electrical sites. Their web site states that “from time to time you'll hear the lonesome whistle of a train as it passes by”. Be aware that the tracks are only several hundred feet distant from the park, so you can’t miss the train passing! Fortunately, usage of the rail line is minimal, with only one or two trains each day. On the plus side, the park is otherwise very quiet and neat. All the residents were well-mannered and friendly during my stay, but I’ll probably look for another park if I visit the area in the future. We camped at Fort Ponderosa RV resort in a Motorhome.
