This is a great, peaceful place to stay. Boulder River is wonderful. Park staff are great. The ONLY complaint I have is the restroom facilities...one shower for each gender on each end of park (2), and showers are old and very cramped. With such a wonderful place, they really need to update their shower facilities and increase the number of showers offered. We camped at Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch in a Travel Trailer.

This was a very peaceful RV park. A little off the beaten path, but worth it. People were friendly and helpful. Our site was next to a trout pond where we were able to enjoy a nice evening fire. We camped at Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch in a Motorhome.

This is our 7th summer at Spring Creek and we drive over 1,000 miles to reach what we consider paradise by the river. The park is small and beautifully maintained. On the sign, it says "Big Rigs Welcome" and they are. That does not mean every site can accommodate a 40 or 45 foot coach. We have a 45' coach and we make our reservation far in advance so that we can be in a comfortable, appropriate site. When travelers arrive late in the day without a reservation, their options may be limited as the park has been very busy this year, probably because the vast majority of visitors find it charming and peaceful. Even so, the managers and staff try very hard to accommodate everyone as long as there is space. We camped at Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch in a Motorhome.

We are here for an extended period and usually eat at the Timber Bar, known for its fried chicken, and The Grand. We generally travel to Livingston to Albertson's for groceries and to Bozeman for Costco and Walmart when we really need to provision. There are a lot of lovely drives around the area and the staff can point you in the right direction about local attractions.

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.

What a pleasant surprise. The park has 3 stocked trout ponds, lots of large trees, lots of grass and the STAFF is worth a million. When we arrived the 2 women in the office said we have your site as requested: clear view southern sky. We went to site 43, with the park manager who guided my wife into the site. Then he asked me where my hook ups were. I got them and he had me fully hooked up in 5 minutes. One of the best customer service experiences I have ever encountered. Great park. We go out of our way to go back. There are many back in sites right on the river. We camped at Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.
