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. We camped at Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
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.
Tips for other Campers:
The quilt shop in Big Timber is a charmer. Dinner at the Grand Hotel is a must!!! We had one of our best-ever dinners there.
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.
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. We camped at Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.
One of the best parks that we have stayed! Drive through Big Timber on a nice road and turn across a big hay field and into the park, situated along the Boulder River, with some fishing ponds in the center of the park. Lots of trees. The staff was very helpful, selecting a site on the river so that our satellite dish would work. We parked on grass, with the back bumper of the fifth wheel about 6 feet from the river's edge. Plenty of space between sites. We did not have a sewer hookup, but there is a free dump on the way out. No problem! Unfortunately, the river was still running very high, so couldn't check out the fishing on the blue ribbon Boulder. A very good reason to come back to this wonderful place! We camped at Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is a wonderful, quaint, family owned campground. It is a quiet peaceful area with easy access off I-90. The grounds and facilities were extremely clean. It was a wonderful experience, and a good value. We would go out of our way to stay there if in the area. Be sure and get some huckleberry ice cream in the well stocked store.

Nice setting along the river. Interesting town and area. Marked campground down for no cable TV and price. We liked the setting, but it's a bit out of the way if you aren't staying to fish. We camped at Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch in a Motorhome.

Last few nights they were open for the season, so we got a great spot for a sweet rate. We wanted full hookup that night after traveling for a week without any. But we would love to have been on the creek itself. So the guy running the place gave us the space in front of the river space where no one was parked. It was like being on the river. The man spoke to us in great length about this and that. In the morning he saw us packing up to leave and ran over to tell us that Yellowstone West (our next scheduled destination) was expecting 12-24" of snow. He could have let us find that out the hard way. This place is a little strange to get to, but well worth the effort. You get off the highway go a couple miles then through a little town, then down a ways more, then a turn and down a ways again. We were a little leery of that with our novice hauling practice, but it was very easy - even for us. Well worth the extra hassle. We camped at Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch in a Motorhome.

This is an excellent place to stay when passing through Big Timber. Great staff, great park, quite. Several sites right on the river bank. Ask for #20. Fishing in the campground ponds or river (with proper license). I hate to leave this park and move on. We will without a doubt stay here again when in this area. Visit the Natural Bridge park when staying here. Ten Good Sams and 15% Military discounts. We camped at Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch in a Motorhome.

We stayed here in a 40' motorhome. The location of campground is nice. Most sites are gravel. The electric and water were both strong. Verizon cell service and MIFI were marginal. Could not get a satellite signal because of a tree in the way. A real ding from my standpoint is, if you ask for a full hookup site they cram you all back together with very little room between sites for sitting out and they don't have fire rings in any of the full hook up sites. If you ask for only electric and water you need to ask for one of the sites along the river, they are the best value and they have fire rings. We camped at Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch in a Motorhome.

We stayed here in our 40' 4 slide motor home with tow vehicle. We were in site 36 with full hookups, satellite and Verizon signal. Site was gravel, tight and unlevel. Did have a table and small patch of grass. Very quiet and personnel were very friendly and helpful. River sites do not have sewer. Nice, well kept park.

Quiet, peaceful, and relaxing. The sites are roomy, the grounds are well kept, and the staff are friendly and helpful. The restrooms and laundry were very clean. Trout fishing and watching on site. Some big rig sites. A basic camp store with fair prices. We will be back. We camped at Spring Creek Campground and Trout Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.
