This is a very nice campground along a stream and they have a fishing pond surrounded by the sites. We had a long pull through, water and electric. There was a dump station just outside of the entrance. The desk clerk and the escort to our sites couldn't have been more pleasant. Don't expect local TV or a useful wifi connection. We camped at Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch in a Travel Trailer.

Great place to spend a few days by the river. Good size spaces. We had a long wide pull through. Lots of trees, green grass, and of course the river. Not too convenient for a one night stop. We had no AT&T Wi-Fi or phone and its a slow trip from I-90 to the campground. We camped at Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is hard to rate, beautiful green grass - very friendly management and there are some sites that clearly would be at nine or ten. The 50 amp riverfront sites are essentially a big portion of the gravel road extended to the river with yellow lines identifying where you should park. Side-by-side hookups also in this location. Not really attractive- too narrow and no grass whatsoever. Would not return. We camped at Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch in a Motorhome.

Management and Staff have done a great job with this park.

The grounds are well maintained. Flower beds are very attractive.

The fishing lake is surrounded by grass.

The camp store has basic items you might need.

We found the sites spacious and in shade most of locations.

It is very quiet during the day and at night.

We have stayed here multiple times and will be back. We camped at Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

We enjoy a ride to the Natural Bridge which is about 20 miles from the Campground. The Boulder River is beautiful.

We do not fish but understand it is a great river for fishing.

Several interesting small shops in town.

If you are a hunter or shooter, a trip to the Shiloh Rifle Co. is a must.

Beautiful park, secluded and quiet.

We chose this park because we have dogs and read in an earlier review that they let your dogs run off leash if controlled.

I want to clear up a misconception about dogs "off leash" that a former reviewer wrote. I picked this park because someone commented that they let you have your dog off leash in certain parts of the park if under control.

Not True. Perhaps because management has changed recently. We camped at Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch in a Motorhome.

Beautiful creek and location. Owners got us set up quickly and were friendly and accurate in representing their rates and services. Very quiet. All you hear is babbling brook. Nice warm showers and clean well functioning bathrooms. Laundry and wifi service (slow, but it works!) No AT&T service here so you can really feel like you are getting away from it all but still get essential emails or wifi. Beautiful, relaxing place close to I 90. We camped at Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here over Labor Day weekend. Every site filled but it didn't feel crowded. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Nice long sites. Lots of green grass. Great fly fishing up the Boulder river; and the Yellowstone River was only a couple miles away. I will definitelybstay here again.

Very pretty drive up the hwy toward McLeod. Was windy on Sunday, which isn't uncommon for this area; otherwise, it was great. Keep in mind there's no TV and only NPR on radio.

We stayed 3 nights while visiting family in Big Timber. This is an older park that sets down off the highway right on the Boulder River. As their ad states they have fishing ponds on site but due to an algae problem all were out of commission. At night you could occasionally hear a very distant train pass which was actually sort of soothing. Other than that it is very quiet. There is free wifi but no local TV channels. Being able to just walk along the beautiful river made this a great place to stay. We look forward to a return visit. We camped at Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Drive up the scenic Boulder Highway all the way into the Gallatin Natl Forest. Fishing on the Boulder River is said to be out-standing. Be sure to dine at the Grand Hotel. The food is outstanding.

We stayed for a week, and thus chose a back-in with sewer and 50A. Our site was a long back-in, with a dog leg in the middle, but one of the staff helped me back it right in. Site was gravel, and fairly level. The nearby Boulder River (it runs along the edge of the park) is very pretty. No cable TV, no over-the-air TV, a very feeble NRP station, but Verizon MiFi worked well. Our site was very close to our neighbor on the left side. We camped at Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed one night in a 30 amp, electric and water only site. None of their pull-thrus have sewer. Only the back-ins have full hookups. Free dump station on your way out. Sites and road are gravel. Our site was fairly level and near the river. This is a very neat and orderly campground. No off leash dog park but there's a large grassy field that they encourage you to let your dog run free as long as you can control them. They're a couple miles off the interstate so it's very quiet and peaceful. Beautiful area and beautiful park that I would love to visit again when we have a few days to stay. Rate reflects a 15% military vet discount. We camped at Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch in a Motorhome.

We stayed here one night as a stopover on our trip in a pull in - back out site with only water and electric there is a free dump station on the way out the park. The park is very neat and orderly. My only complaint about the campground is there signage along the interstate it says campground two miles while the actual campground is about 8 miles from the sign, I know that's no big deal but when you're tired and looking for a campground 2 miles off the interstate it is a big deal. We camped at Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch in a 26 foot travel trailer. We camped at Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice park, but the best, grassy area on the river seems to be reserved for the largest rigs/homes, and the smaller ones are smashed together (we were maybe 2 feet from our neighbors on each side!) on gravel areas that are on the river, but the noise from everyone is so much that you can't hear the water. If you want more than being a sardine in a can, but still want a river site, don't accept any of the southern sites----just those few on the north end. The sites away from the river on the north end are also nice and more spaced out than those on the southern end. We camped at Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful park with several sites right on the river. It's very green with a lot of grass and 3 ponds going through the middle of the park. The staff were very friendly upon check in. It's a little ways off the highway, but definitely worth it. We would like to stay here again and spend more than 1 night. We camped at Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed at this park while visiting the Big Timber area. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Guided us to our site and gave us lots of information for doing day trips and other interests in the area. Our site was by the Boulder River and had an awesome view. would stay here again.
